Be a Better Writer (Sciences)
Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination

Format of workshop: Information and Discussion/Practical
Suitable for: All

As academics, it is our duty to present essential information to our audience in a way which gives them every chance of understanding it at first reading and in the same sense that we meant it to be understood. Re-examine the previous sentence and consider how many academic papers you have read that don’t meet these basic requirements. This course will help you to say what you mean and help your reader to understand it. It’s not a course about how to write the perfect paper or about how to write a good thesis. It will simply help you to improve your written communication. By the end of this course you will learn:
* the key rules of style and tone
* how to edit effectively and polish your writing
* how to avoid common writing errors
* how to say what you mean quickly and effectively

Presenters
Dr Caron Fraser Wood
