Announcing a New Series of Online Workshop Themed Discussions

Please join The Carpentries Core Team for a monthly community call centred around online workshops

As work on The Carpentries Online Workshops Pilot continues, The Carpentries is launching a new series of monthly themed discussions, led by members of The Carpentries Core Team. The goal of these calls is to discuss ongoing work around online workshops — from changes to workshop registration to best practices in using technology to manage the shift to online-only workshops.

Additionally, these themed discussions will allow time for direct communication with our community on experiences, learnings, challenges and questions arising from online workshops.

If you would like to attend these sessions, please sign up at The Carpentries Community Discussions Etherpad.
