Workshop development & delivery

Our workshops will teach a mix of existing and new content, including new material developed in parallel by other initiatives, to address the skills gaps most frequently identified by health and bioscience researchers. We will use open-source platforms developed by The Carpentries, a community-based project that is a global leader in teaching data and coding skills. The Carpentries paradigm of open access training leads participants on a skills development path, first as a learner, then helping an experienced instructor, finally leading instruction themselves. The Carpentries’ success and sustainability is driven by its inclusive and collaborative approach, broadening the base of people actively engaged in learning, applying, and teaching data skills.
