The course encourages participants to see “the big picture” of their research. It uses discussions, exercises and homework to underscore key-points. Participants are equipped with writing tools rather than being burdened with writing rules. The course includes editing of participants’ Abstracts and follow-up one-to-one consultation. Discussions in class are intended to facilitate an understanding of the writing process; encouraging interaction and the sharing of writing experiences. The course aims to create an informal atmosphere that motivates students to enjoy writing.
Participants receive an easy-to-use book that guides the students through all levels of scientific writing from the fundamentals of word choice to the overall structure of the paper.
