Submit Expressions of Interest for Upcoming Carpentries Instructor Training Session

The Carpentries is a global program to teach foundational computational and data management skills to researchers. New Zealand trains several potential carpentries instructor trainees every year and it is time to train a new cohort of future instructors. Our next instructor training course will be held virtually in late October 2022.  
This training is organised by New Zealand eScience Infrastructure (NeSI), University of Otago, the Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR), and Genomics Aotearoa.

If you're interested in raising digital literacy in Aotearoa New Zealand by running local workshops (wherever you are based nationally), this training is for you! 
This course aims to achieve the following goals:

  • Introduce you to evidence-based best-practices of teaching.
  • Teach you how to create a positive environment for learners at your workshops.
  • Provide opportunities for you to practice and build your teaching skills.
  • Help you become integrated into the Carpentries community.
  • Prepare you to use these skills in teaching Carpentries workshops.
