Workshop Attendance

Most of our workshops our hosted at individual institutions or departments, and people from those departments receive priority.

If you are interested in attending a workshop, keep an eye on our our Upcoming workshops page, or look in to ways to get someone to Host a workshop at your organization.

We are also working on developing strategies to deliver workshops outside of individual institutions. More information soon!

What to expect if you’re attending a workshop

  • Workshops are hands-on. Plan to bring your laptop and be prepared to work along!
  • We use a Code of Conduct and instructors and participants are required to follow this code to ensure a friendly learning environment for all partipants.
  • Workshops are typically two full days of focused instruction. Individual modules last 1.5 to 3 hours and are separated by breaks or lunch.
  • All workshop materials are free and public and will be available before, during and after the workshop.
  • You will be taught by a trained Software/Data Carpentry instructor. All our instructors are volunteers committed to training others in these skills and approaches. They have appropriate skills and knowledge and have been through a Train the Trainers program.
  • Before the workshop, we will send out instructions on what you need to have installed or set up on your computer, what tutorials will be used and a pre-workshop survey to complete for us to get the best information on who will be attending.
  • After the workshop, we welcome feedback and in particular appreciate your completion of the post-workshop survey to continue to improve the workshop materials and experience.
