Teaching

Library Carpentry

Professional workshops, Library of Congress (and other locations), 2020

I am a certified instructor in The Carpentries, a method of teaching that emphasizes technical skill-building and live-coding in an inclusive and accessible learning environment. I focus on Library Carpentry, which presents an active curriculum for librarians to expand their digital skills. I became involved with this teaching approach in 2018, while at the Library of Congress, and I have since taught workshops in-person and online, for learners at the Smithsonian, American University, Clemson University, and the U.S. Geological Survey.
