Instructor training workshops to learn to organise and teach Carpentries and CodeRefinery workshops to spread data literacy, programming skills and best software practices in the Nordics. Our train the trainer program aims at building partnerships with Research Software Engineers and researchers who are willing to lead skills’ transfer within their local communities in the Nordics. Two types of instructor training are offered:

  • Within CodeRefinery the instructor training focuses on learning how to teach tools and best practices in research software development.
