NeuroImaging Carpentry “Lunch & Learn” – Fall 2021 Edition – Volunteer recruitment

Intended audience

A collective of researchers from several Canadian Universities and Institutions is developing a series of Neuroimaging lessons under the The Carpentries Incubator.


We are looking for volunteers to teach these lesson materials as part of a process by which we verify the ‘road worthiness’ of the lessons, continuing to improve them based on your feedback and building our way towards Carpentry certification.

Here are a few more details to help you decide if the lesson is right for your audience:

  • For the first four lessons, some familiarity with Python would be helpful to learners. Introductions to Python can be found in such lessons as Software Carpentry’s Plotting and Programming in Python and Programming with Python.
  • Lessons are expected to take 2 to 3 hours to teach.
  • The lessons can be taught with local Jupyter installations or via the Binder instances that are available for each lesson repository.

How to sign up

If you would like to help pilot one or more of these lessons at your institute/organisation, please take a few minutes to fill in this short application form before the end of Friday, 24th of September, 2021 (anywhere on Earth). Your application will help us better coordinate the piloting process and maximise the beneficial impact on the lesson material.
