We offer courses in the following areas:
A half-day course on finding topic-specific literature, critical analysis of literature and data, avoiding plagiarism, setting scope, aims, objectives and writing scientifically for a particular audience.
Hypotheses setting, identification and control of confounding variables, use of positive and negative controls, collaborative working, accurate recording, data presentation and communication. This half day course will include some group working as you carry out real scientific experiments.
Know your audience, demonstrate relevance, use metaphor and don’t “dumb it down”. We’ll give you confidence, and practise, in all of these areas so you can start to meet your public engagement commitments.
Please contact us, for more details, and to book. Courses will be held in Edinburgh (9.30 am – 4.30 pm), or we might be able to come to you.
