There are currently five training modules being developed. Here are brief descriptions for the purpose of reference.

[edit] Introduction to Open Source

The introduction to open source currently looks like this. You can see a self-guided version here. (It has been recommended that presenters actually read the self-guided version first -- the main version are the slides you would actually present.)

[edit] OpenHatch Mentoring Philosophy

This training module will be more of a discussion of our mentoring philosophy and how best to carry it out at OpenHatch events. You can read about that philosophy in the Mentor Guide under "general guidelines" (that's the only section pre-selected, so just scroll down; you can ignore the rest, which is out of date).
