Thank you everyone for responding on and off list. Deb, David, Elise, and Dan are going to be teaching and anyone else is welcome as a helper.
Since so many people were interested in teaching, would someone else be interested in organizing a second workshop this semester? (There is a checklist to help you.) We're drifting in to final project and exam season but I'm happy to entertain ideas about a time.
An alternative would be to start planning Spring workshops now so we can organize and announce them around Thanksgiving to give people time to sign up before break.
Also, we really should start an official Carpentries Club to adjudicate such matters of scheduling. If anyone knows of a structure at UF for staff, faculty, and students to form an official group, please let us know. Otherwise we can just be unofficial.

I would be happy to be involved in whatever role is most useful to you.
I am still not quite certified, but am 2/3 through the instructor
training checkout, and my teaching demonstration is scheduled for 11th
I'm confident about helping/teaching R, SQL, and Spreadsheets, but do
not have much familiarity with OpenRefine.

We have 2 project staff who are going to instruct but we'd like to have some instructors and helpers from the UF community as well. We'd like to show the natural history community how a campus-wide Carpentries community works and results in mixing people from departments across campus. We are holding half the seats for attendees of our summit but the other half are going to be open to UF attendees starting 10/9.
