The Galaxy Training Network (GTN) has been working for several years
with GOBLET and the ELIXIR Training Platform to create material and
deliver training for scientists, developers and system administrators. A
selection of 72 tutorials, developed by more than 60 contributors, is
already available at http://training.galaxyproject.org/ In this workshop, we intend to improve the participants’ understanding
of learning principles, training techniques and best practices for
materials preparation. We will then work together to expand the existing
collection of Galaxy training materials by covering more topics relevant
to the ELIXIR use cases, add missing annotation and metadata and make
the materials easily accessible.
The workshop will start with a 1-day "Train the Trainer" course, similar
to the Carpentries' Instructor Training and the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Train
the Trainer. Here Galaxy trainers will develop an insight into different
learning styles, understand what makes a good trainer, and learn new
approaches to training from experienced trainers. This course will help
them to better contribute and shape the materials during the hackathon.
This workshop is kindly sponsored by ELIXIR-UK and the ELIXIR Training
