Software Carpentry instructor training - October 31-November 1, 2019

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Software Carpentry's mission is to help scientists and engineers get more research done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic lab skills for scientific computing.

This class is very different from our usual offer, it teaches how to teach Software Carpentry workshops.  The course is aimed at those who are interested in becoming a better teacher and in contributing to our regular workshops.  You don't have to have an extensive teaching experience to attend this workshop, but you do need to be willing and committed to becoming one and to learning about and improving your teaching techniques.
