Tweet of The Week

Sarah Stevens, PhD @microstevens
Interesting question in @thecarpentries discussion today: For those who have been trained during the pandemic and teaching only online, are there suggestions for how to transition into in-person teaching?

Community News & Updates from Our Committees / Task Forces

We Value All Contributions - The Carpentries 2021 Fundraiser
On November 2, The Carpentries launched an end of the year donation campaign to raise $5000. The campaign will run through December 31, and funds we get from this campaign will help us:

  • Offer greater diversity in the languages we teach and interact in.

  • Recognize and appreciate the different cultural norms that exist around data, programming, teaching, and volunteering in different regions to improve our programs and services.

  • Collaborate with existing organisations to reach broader communities.

  • Authentically engage broader communities, working with, not for them.
