This is a great idea — Instructor training for teaching computational workshops. From my UC Davis colleague Titus Brown. I have copied details below.
As part of our Summer Institute in Data Intensive Biology, we will be running a week-long instructor training from June 18 to June 25 at the University of California, Davis.
The instructor training will include the following —
- Hands-on training in good pedagogical practice!
- Become a certified Software/Data Carpentry instructor!
- Learn to repurpose and remix online training materials for your own needs!
This workshop is intended for people interested in teaching, reusing and repurposing the Software Carpentry, Data Carpentry, or Analyzing Next-Generation 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.
The workshop fee will be $350 for the week. Applications will close March 17th.
