Event description

Description

This short course consists of three half days spread over three weeks. During the time we have together we will develop and try out different strategies to help us write and we will look in detail at some of the specific writing tasks that we face in science. In particular, we will spend time on developing a strategy for writing a scientific paper.

Because the course is over three weeks each participant will be invited after each session to prepare some short pieces of writing that will be individually critiqued by the course presenter Allan Gaw.

The course will be limited to 10 participants to ensure that there is maximum interaction and personalized tuition.

After this course each participant will: •Understand the importance of being able to write well in science •Appreciate the common difficulties faced by writers and how to overcome them •Understand what is meant by freewriting •Develop a personal strategy for writing •Know how to edit and revise your texts •Know how to avoid the commonest grammatical errors in English •Understand the need to develop a professional, scientific style.
