Carpentries Instructor Training workshops running on 16-19 March
We will be running The Carpentries Instructor Training online in the afternoons of 16-19 March.
Instructor Training is an intensive (normally two-day) workshop for novices that explains evidence-based approaches to effective teaching computational and data skills. It is also part of official training for people who wish to become Software Carpentry, Library Carpentry and Data Carpentry Instructors.
- teaches how to create a positive environment and motivate learners at workshops and classes.
- provides opportunities to practise and build your own teaching skills.
- prepares you to use these teaching skills in Carpentry workshops (and any other teaching you may do).
- helps you become an integrated member of the Carpentries community.
It is strongly advised that the attendees have some previous exposure to Carpentry workshops - either as students, helpers, observers or co-instructors - to help put what we teach at the workshop in the right context.
The workshop website contains more details about the workshop and schedule. To apply for a place at the workshop - please contact Aleksandra Nenadic at email@example.com. Priority will be given to participants from UK institutions that do not have a partnership with The Carpentries, i.e. people who cannot get onto Instructor Training as part of their institutional membership.
