Galaxy with its flexibility, reproducibility, and scalability is an ideal environment for teaching and training diverse scientific topics.
The Galaxy Training Network is a community initiative dedicated to high-quality Galaxy-based training around the world. One of its objectives is to support trainers with complete training material and recommendations about bioinformatics training. Templates and best training practices were defined to help trainers create new material, unify the different material, and make training materials more accessible and easy for users to learn and for teachers to teach (https://training.galaxyproject.org).
This workshop will introduce participants to the infrastructure of the GTN training materials and describe how to generate training materials following best practices. Participants will be introduced to the generation of Galaxy Interactive Tours and Docker Galaxy flavors dedicated to teaching and training sessions. The workshop will also cover best practices for running Galaxy-based workshops - how to plan a training session based on number of attendees, time constraints, resource availability, etc.
