Teaching R using inclusive pedagogy: Practices and lessons learned from over 700 Carpentries workshops
January 25, 2019
The Carpentries is an open, global community teaching researchers the skills to turn data into knowledge. Since 2012 we have taught 700+ R workshops & trained 1600+ volunteer instructors. Our workshops use evidence-based teaching, focus on foundational and relevant skills and create an inclusive environment. Teaching the Tidyverse allows learners to start working with data quickly, and keeps them motivated to begin and sustain their learning. Our assessment show that these approaches have been successful in attracting diverse learners, building confidence & increasing coding usage. Through our train-the-trainer model and open, collaborative lessons, this approach scales globally to reach more learners and further democratize data.
