The R consortium Infrastructure Steering Committee awards have been officially announced and we are happy to confirm that our proposal to organise an R-based instructor training was successful.
We will organise an in-person instructor training that will focus on R. While the content of the training will not change as such, code-related exercises and examples that the participants will be working with will be focused on R, and will be made available to the R instructor community to help them improve their teaching. The full proposal is available here.
We are now waiting for all the paperwork to be finalised. The next step is to decide where to organise the training—see this issue for requirements and share your suggestions. If you would like to participate, please register your interest here by sending a pull request.
We thank the R consortium for their support and look forward to organising our R-based instructor training.
