Scientific writing for PhD students

13-14 November + 10-11 December 2019

Science is mostly generation of high quality data and ideas. However, presentation of data and ideas is arguably of similar importance: after generation of data and ideas, you want to convince the reviewers, be it in the form of papers or grants.

The aim of this training is to provide PhD students and postdoctoral researchers with an opportunity to build their understanding, skills and confidence in writing good papers and grants.

This will enhance their overall effectiveness as they pursue their research studies and maximize success of their future careers. Participants will experience interactive lectures, moderated group discussions and perform activities in order to learn from first-hand experience.

We will safely move them outside of their “comfort zone” to the “learning zone” (Gerald Hüther) to enhance acquisition of novel skills. In addition, we will apply the “invoked insufficiency” to nenhance learning. The shortcoming experienced by participants will be resolved in carefully moderated and focused review sessions, using peer-to-peer feedback as powerful tool.
