We are very pleased to announce that we will be running two one-day workshops on how to teach programming during the PyCon sprints in Montreal on April 14 and 15, 2014. The workshops will be led by Greg Wilson, who will show participants how to use basic concepts from educational psychology and instructional design when teaching beginners how to code. The event is open to everyone, not just to PyCon attendees; please register here, or mail us if you have any questions.
This event is just one of several we are running in conjunction with PyCon. You or your colleagues may also be interested in:

There are also still a few spots open in the full three-day version of the Software Carpentry instructor training course in Toronto on April 28-30.
