Combining The Carpentries, Library Instruction, and Research Computing
- The Carpentries, a nonprofit focused on teaching foundational skills in research computing, has a very robust and well-developed curriculum and community. These workshops are generally taught as a two-day intensive boot camp. Libraries that run instructional programs may find that the scope of The Carpentries workshops complements much of what they want to do for supporting campus groups engaging in modern computationally based scholarship. However, the two-day boot camp may not be the best idea for engagement with the campus community or providing opportunities for long-term partnerships. Taking some of that structure and format and breaking it apart into smaller chunks has the potential to provide a robust structure to complement or start a computational research instruction program.
