Community Discussion - Collaborating to Increase Carpentries Workshops in New Zealand

On Tuesday June 25th from 1:00-2:00pm NZDT The Regional Coordinator for Carpentries New Zealand will be hosting a community call.

The Carpentries project comprises the Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry, and Library Carpentry communities who share a mission to teach foundational computational and data science skills to researchers.

This will be New Zealand’s second community call of the year. Last time, attendees discussed what obstacles prevent the NZ community from holding more workshops.  For a more thorough recap, see the summary here.

The upcoming call will focus on breaking down the barriers to collaboration so that running a Carpentries workshop is as easy as possible. If you are an instructor, if you have a venue, or if you know of groups around New Zealand keen to do training, we would love to hear from you!  

Critiques, comments, and questions are also welcome. If you are a Carpentries Instructor/Helper/Learner/Community Member, want to run your own Carpentries Workshops, or just want to know more about how The Carpentries can help your team, you are encouraged to come along to the call.
