The workshop is a part of ELIXIR Software and Data Carpentry Pilot Project. The trainers will be Tracy Teal (Data Carpentry Executive Director) and Aleksandra Pawlik (University of Manchester, Software Sustainability Institute).  The workshop will focus on developing teaching skills and approaches to effective training. We will cover the basics of educational psychology and instructional design, and look at how to use these ideas in both intensive workshops and regular classes. The attendees will also learn how to work with Data and Software Carpentry infrastructure for setting up and running workshops, contributing to training materials and interacting with the instructor community. The training will involve some pre- and post-workshop homework (some reading and tasks to complete).

Please note that the attendees are responsible for their travel expenses. 

It is strongly encouraged that the attendees have had some previous exposure to the Data and Software Carpentry workshops, either as students, helpers, observers or co-instructors. If you would like to become an Instructor but have not yet participated in any workshop, we encourage you to check the list of upcoming Software and Data Carpentry workshops to see if you could join any of these events. 

If you would like to attend the training, please contact Aleksandra Pawlik.
