Workshops: Project Planning, Getting Started with Your Writing

student with laptop(PGT – Online) Project Planning

  • Friday 20 February 2015 at 19:00 – 20:00 (UK Time)

All successful projects need to be planned, and while some of us are natural planners most of us need a little help.  In this online session we will apply some simple tools and techniques to help us solve many of the common problems we face and avoid others altogether.  We will focus particularly on where and how to begin planning a project and consider the three related aspects of time, budget and quality.

 

(PGT-Online) Getting Started with Your Scientific Writing – Who’s Afraid of the blank page?

  • Tuesday 24th February 2015 at 19.00-20.00 (UK Time)

If you find writing a challenge, you are not alone. There are a number of difficulties, but many writers find that their biggest problem is simply getting started. In this online session we will focus on strategies we can use to help us get over that fear of the big blank page.  We will look at freewriting and how this can help us generate text and, also, help us think on paper. By the end of this one hour interactive online session, you will have a better understanding of what free writing is and how it can help you in your scientific writing and your scientific thinking. And, you will also learn a little about unicorns.

These sessions will take place via blackboard collaborate (virtual classroom). Booking is required in order to receive the workshop link and further information about how to join the session.
