Workshops to Increase Awareness and Deployment of Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry Open Educational Materials

Winona State University


Winona State University is leveraging open source materials from Software Carpentry to supplement lessons in their scientific and mathematic courses. Software Carpentry provides on-site workshops that help teachers better understand how to properly leverage open source materials. In addition to providing these workshops on their own campus, Winona State University is facilitating the delivery of these workshops elsewhere in Minnesota so that faculty from multiple colleges and universities can learn to use Software Carpentry materials in their courses.
