Resources for Online Workshops¶
In the wake of COVID-19 in early 2020, The Carpentries community came together to share experiences, tips, and best practices for teaching online. This page lists all the resources developed and links to ongoing conversations by The Carpentries Core Team and community on different platforms.
Resources by The Carpentries¶
The Carpentries convened a Task Force to address the urgent demand for online Carpentries workshops as communities have shifted to distance work across the globe. The Task Force concluded its work on April 1, with an initial set of guidelines for teaching, supporting, and communicating about fully online versions of all Data Carpentry, Library Carpentry, and Software Carpentry workshops.
Official guidelines and recommendations for teaching pilot-phase Carpentries workshops can be found here on The Carpentries website.
FAQ For Workshop Coordination can be found here on The Carpentries website.
