First of all, thank you for your interest in conducting a tutorial at PyCon Taiwan 2023.
Generally speaking, good tutorials possess most of the traits that good talks have. The biggest differences between a tutorial and a talk are the hands-on nature of a tutorial, and the duration of the tutorial. As tutorials last longer than talks, well-prepared content is required but the content must stay interesting to keep the attendees engaged. Hence, you must have prior experience teaching coding to people. You might also want to consider bringing along teaching assistants for tutorials to assist you. We recommend at least two teaching assistants for a general class size of 20 people.
Due to the differences mentioned above, speakers who are interested in conducting tutorials must satisfy at least one of the following prerequisites:
We might ask you to give the tutorial at a local Python meetup before the conference if you lack the experience mentioned above.
The length of the tutorial is 1 hour and 30 minutes.
In our previous experiences, tutorials that run for 6 hours were exhausting for both instructors and students, and students usually find it difficult to follow along in the second half of the tutorial. Full-day tutorials require an experienced instructor, and hence we have decided to limit the length of a tutorial to 1 hour and 30 minutes this year. We strongly recommend you to clearly define prerequisites and goals in your tutorial and tutorial proposal, which will help ensure the best learning experience for the participants.
Tutorials are held in parallel with the main conference, and tutorials will be held at the same online venue as the main conference, albeit in different rooms.
All tutorials will be free for conference participants.
The easiest way is to get involved in your local Python communities by speaking at these events.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
