The Carpentries Lab

Thank you for your interest in The Carpentries Lab! This repository is used to track the lessons that are aimed to be reviewed by our community. Our reviews are open, and their goal is to ensure that the lessons follow best practices in pedagogy and the general teaching practices used in Carpentries workshops.

Everyone participating in The Carpentries Lab agrees to follow The Carpentries Code of Conduct.

We are currently piloting our lesson review process, and are commiting only to review lessons by invitation. If you have not been invited to submit your lesson to The Carpentries Lab, you may still open an issue to request a review but should expect some delay in the processing of your submission.

Why The Carpentries Lab?

There is excitement and interest in the way The Carpentries teach and deliver workshops. We are developing tools and templates for lessons that have proven to be effective to format and deliver both in workshop settings and for self-guided learning.

There is also a need from learners who have participated in our workshops to explore further topics that can only be covered briefly in our 2-day trainings.

The goal of The Carpentries Lab is to be a repository of high-quality, community-reviewed, discoverable lessons. People already familiar with The Carpentries teaching practice can pick them up and teach them in meetups, in class, or in complement of a "standard" Carpentries 2-day workshop. The lessons can also be used by independent learners, outside of workshops.

This repository is the place where lessons can be submitted and reviewed for inclusion in The Carpentries Lab.

If you want to begin creating a new lesson, or transfer an existing lesson to a place where other members of The Carpentries community can contribute to further its development, please submit a proposal to The Carpentries Incubator.

Why should you submit your lesson to The Carpentries Lab?

  • As a lesson author, you value the feedback from reviewers, and you are interested in receiving feedback and contributions from members of the community.
  • You will receive a badge and banner for your lesson, indicating that it is undergoing/has passed the peer review process.
  • The Carpentries will publicize your lessons through The Carpentries Lab website.
