The Carpentries will be at rstudio::global 2021, and our team will host informal chat sessions during some of the breaks in between sessions. You can find us at The Carpentries table at designated times in the conference’s Spatial.Chat Community Partners Room for discussions around instructor training, lesson development, contributing to R lessons in The Carpentries curriculum, community experiences and recommendations for teaching online and Carpentries community activities in 2021 and mentoring among other things. Everyone is welcome to join in the conversations and share from your experiences in The Carpentries.

The screengrab above shows the Community Partners room layout in rstudio::global(2021)’s spatial.chat. Moving your user icon closer to a specific table makes the ongoing conversation around that table more audible for you. Likewise, dragging your user icon away from a table makes the conversation more faint.

We will be holding discussions in the Community Partners room at the following times, and they have all been added to The Carpentries community calendar for ease of reference:

  • 16:00 - 17:00 UTC on 21 January 2021;
  • 20:00 - 21:00 UTC on 21 January 2021;
  • 09:00 - 10:00 UTC on 22 January 2021;
  • 12:00 - 13:00 UTC on 22 January 2021

Notes from these discussions will be added to this Etherpad and you can add your questions ahead of time in there. In case you have any trouble joining, please email community@carpentries.org and we will respond as soon as possible.

ROpenSci, MetaDocencia and OpenScapes will also hold meet and greet sessions in the Community Partners room a different times throughout the conference, please join in when you can.
