Vision/Mission Statement

Carpentry@UiO is the UiO local relay of the international Carpentries organisation.

We are a group of volunteers from the University of Oslo and beyond. With support from the University of Oslo Library, we offer to PhD students, researchers and others at UiO, and beyond:

  • foundational coding and data science skills workshops from Software Carpentry,  Data Carpentry, and Library Carpentry
  • study Group events dedicated to open and reproducible science, knowledge sharing, re-enforcing learning or discussing new subjects for future workshops/lesson development
  • educational development and networking opportunities with the possibility to become Certified Carpentries Instructor and/or Carpentries Instructor Trainer

Our activities and community are open to any member of the UiO community including staff, faculty, and students, paid, and volunteer. We believe the Carpentries’ teaching methods are efficient and can speed up take-up toward the adoption of Open Science at UiO.

For further details of our activities, please take a look at our reports.

Library Carpentry

Library Carpentry workshops focus on building software and data skills within library and information-related communities. The goal is to empower people in these roles to use software and data in their own work and to become advocates for and train others in efficient, effective and reproducible data and software practices.
