Communicating Science developed out from two separate courses we had been running for the past years at the College of Foreign Languages and Cultures. Those courses were Writing in English for Academic Publishing and Conference Presentations. When the opportunity arose to further develop the communicating science programme for PhD students, we jumped on the opportunity to develop a complete learning experience, not only for our students, but for the whole university and across the boundaries of our university.
Part 1 of the Communicating Science course is Science Writing. Science Writing is about developing the writing skills of the learners which they can apply directly to the writing of scientific publications in their domain, but also skills they can utilise when writing different genres.
