Scientific Writing Course, 3.-6.9.2019

We are glad to announce that Prof. Dr. Rob Kail (Purdue University, USA) will travel to Bern again to teach about scientific writing, and how to write clearly, concisely and flowing.

The scientific writing course takes place from Tuesday September 3 – Friday September 6, on Tuesday from 3 – 5 pm, and on Wednesday – Friday from 1 – 5 pm.

The focus of this course is on the basics of clear writing (including grammar and style), and on how to write effective research reports. Each course session starts with guidelines/tips for effective writing and then, these guidelines are practiced. Students need to bring their own laptop. The course has an equivalent of 2 ETCS credits.

A maximum of 12 PhD students can participate in this course.

If you like to register for this course, please send an email to Jennifer Sprenger, including a short motivation statement why you like to participate in this course. Please register before August 9, 2019.
