Instructor Training: Information for Member Organizations

Welcome to The Carpentries community. We are excited to welcome you as a member organisation. Our instructor training process is a vital component of how we spread the teaching culture of the Carpentries to new organisations. We’re looking forward to meeting your team and helping them develop their teaching skills so you can have the best impact on the learners at your institution.

Your annual membership gives you a number of slots in our Instructor Training program. This training is for people who want to become certified Instructors with The Carpentries and is based on our constantly updated open-source curriculum.

This two-day online workshop is a mix of lecture and hands-on practice and is highly interactive. Your trainees will learn evidence-based best-practices for teaching and strategies for creating a positive learning environment. They will have opportunities to practice these techniques and get feedback. This training will also help your team become integrated into the global Carpentries community.
