This chapter provides documentation concerning the design and implementation of HI-DSI workshops that are hosted at the Change-HI/EDU Morea site.

The Change-HI program, in partnership with the University of Hawaii Data Science Institute (HI-DSI),sponsors a set of two hour workshops, which introduce participants to a particular technology or skill that can prove helpful to their research or professional practice. These workshops are also intended as a mechanism for students to learn educational skills as they develop and deliver the workshops to participants.

The following sections in this chapter provide information on:

  • How do you get started with workshop development? What are the mechanics of cloning, updating, and merging the Change-HI/EDU github repo with a new (or improved) HI-DSI workshop module?
  • How do you design and implement a high quality workshop? How does a workshop differ from a seminar or a class?
  • What are tips and strategies for the nuts and bolts of HI-DSI workshop implementation with Morea?
  • How can HI-DSI administrators make edits to the live site?
