The Forwards teaching team support the work of the taskforce via the following projects:

  • R Coding Workshops: in-person workshops taught or supported by members of Forwards, targeting members of under-represented groups. So far, the team has focused on two types of workshop: package development workshops for women and coding workshops for high school girls. See the workshops page, for further details, up-coming and past workshops.

  • Forwards Teaching materials: materials from the workshops with licenses that allow them to be re-used and re-mixed for use in R-Ladies groups, R user groups and beyond. See the workshops GitHub for materials from the package development workshop and the teaching examples GibHub for material from the high school girls workshop.

  • Teaching Examples: a collection of diverse and inclusive examples for use in the teaching of R and data science. For more information and to get involved, see the teaching examples GitHub.
