New Feature: Trainer Directory! (Add yourself today!)

new feature community building capacity building

Posted on: 21 March 2023 purlPURL:

Numerous other training groups keep “Trainer Directories” as a way to help students meet trainers in their area, especially for hosting workshops for their local community. There have been a handful of attempts at this in the past, both in galaxyproject/galaxy-maps and in a Google Map on the GTN homepage.

We will now store this data within the GTN itself, and trainers can manage this data themselves. If you are a trainer that offers training courses in your local area, or are interested in helping others teach in that region, please feel free to update your Contributors profile with the new metadata:

    name: Helena Rasche
    orcid: 0000-0001-9760-8992
    contact_for_training: true
      country: NL
      lat: 51.91
      lon: 4.46

And we’ll add a nice map to the GTN, and potentially the Galaxy Hub as well! The contact_for_training field is a true or false value which lets you indicate you’re open to being contacted regarding giving training. Other trainers in your region might use this if they’re looking for help giving a course or want experts in a field for a course they plan to host. We do not have plans currently expose this to “end users” looking for training, we will probably attempt to push them first to the existing events list.

Cool URLs Don't Change, GTN URLs don't either.

At the Galaxy Training Network we are really committed to ensuring our training materials are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. This means that we want to make sure that the URLs to our training materials are persistent and don’t change. The GTN wants you to be able to rely on our URLs once you’ve added them to a poster or training material, without having to worry about them breaking in the future.
