Hundreds of grassroots groups all across Canada are now teaching people how to code, but who is teaching them how to teach? Just as a few lessons about variables, loops, and functions can save people hours of frustration, a few lessons about formative assessment, live coding, and other practices can help busy volunteers do more good in less time and with less pain.

This one-day class will introduce participants to a handful of key ideas that have a firm foundation in education research and proven useful in practice. The class is based on the Software Carpentry instructor training course, which has been delivered dozens of times on four continents. Instructions will be hands-on: short lessons will alternate with individual and group practical exercises, including practice teaching sessions.

Please note that the lesson materials are all freely available online at under an open license. For more information, please contact the instructor at
