The next round of carpentry instructor training, funded through the Department of Higher Education and Training's Rural Campus Connectivity Project II grant, is for people who are already using tools such as R, Python, Shell, Git, Matlab.
It will run from 21 to 23 February in Kleinmond, South Africa. This training event will teach people how teaching and learning work, specifically if they work with novices to computing. It does not teach the tools themselves.
