Using GitHub for Faculty
Many faculty are famliar with GitHub and its potential to organize instructional and research content in an open and accessible framework, but are intimidated by the command line tools often used to work with the platform. With recent enhancements to GitHub’s web-based tools, it’s never been easier to use GitHub for instruction and scholarship. This informal two-hour Zoom drop-in will overview how to take advantage of GitHub using just a web browser to create a course or project website, to manage a discussion board for your course/project, and to author reproducable Python or LaTeX code directly in your course/project repository.
This drop-in will be held on 2023 June 27 (Tuesday) from 11am-1pm Eastern. Information will be announced at the pretext-announce Google Group.
