Flock of birds

Instructor training

June 25-26, 2018.

Instructors: Anelda van der Walt and SherAaron Hurt

Local organizer: Karen Word.

This workshop is intended for people interested in teaching, reusing and repurposing the Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry, or Analyzing High Throughput Sequencing Data materials. We envision this course being most useful to current teaching-intensive faculty, future teachers and trainers, and core facilities that are developing training materials.

Attendees will learn about and gain practice implementing evidence-based teaching practices. Common pitfalls specific to novice-level instruction and bioinformatics in particular will be discussed, along with associated troubleshooting strategies. Content used in prior ANGUS workshops will be used for all practice instruction, and experienced instructors will be on hand to address questions about implementation.

Attendees of this workshop should plan to remain at the following Carpentry two-day so that they can gain hands-on experience in preparing and teaching a lesson.

This two-day training will fulfill the requirements of Software/Data Carpentry Instructor Training.

Attendees should have significant familiarity with molecular biology and basic experience with the command line.

We anticipate a class size of approximately 25, with 3-6 instructors.

Apply here!

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the workshop is full!
