Vision & Mission Statement #
We are a group of volunteers from the University of Oslo and beyond. With support from the University of Oslo Library, we offer to PhD students, researchers and others at UiO, and beyond:
- foundational coding and data science skills workshops from Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry
- Study Group events dedicated to open and reproducible science, knowledge sharing, re-enforcing learning or discussing new subjects for future workshops/lesson development
- educational development and networking opportunities with the possibility to become Certified Carpentries Instructor and/or Carpentries Instructor Trainer
Our activities and community are open to any member of the UiO community including staff, faculty, and students, paid, and volunteer. We believe the Carpentries’ teaching methods are efficient and can speed up take-up toward the adoption of Open Science at UiO.
What do we do? #
Our primary activity is organizing and teaching hands-on foundational coding and data science skills workshops using the materials and practices of the Data and Software Carpentry organizations. The club will also provide educational development and networking opportunities for instructors. To maintain transparency, board meeting notes, workshop schedules, and all other club activities will be posted publicly on the web (when possible) at the Carpentries@UiO website.
Carpentry@UiO is open to anyone interested in teaching foundational coding and data science skills outside of the traditional UiO curriculum. All our members abide to the Carpentry@UiO code of conduct.
If you wish to teach or help at upcoming workshops, please reply to the calls regularly sent to the organizers @ carpentry dot uio dot no mailing list or contact carpadmin @ carpentry dot uio dot no. For more information, please refer to the Carpentry@UiO onboarding checklist
