ABSTRACT / INTRODUCTION
In this session, we will explain why NeSI and the other NZ Caprentries member institutions buy into the Carpentries instructor training model. We then will teach you one of our favourite instructor training lessons. Come along if you are curious about the instructor training model, want to know more about the Carpentries, or if you want to experience (or re-experience) a lesson from the much-loved instructor training curriculum.
