“If an experiment is done in the lab but no journal ever publishes it, did it really happen? Writing scientific articles and grants is critical for communicating our work to other scientists and advancing our fields, but scientific writing is often indecipherable, even to other scientists. Join Dr. Judith Swan, Assoc. Dir. for Writing in Science and Engineering at Princeton and renowned scientific writing expert, as she teaches students to clarify their writing, anticipate the expectations of readers, and make persuasive arguments.
This workshop will be held in two back-to-back parts. Part 1 (10am-12pm) will focus on “Clarifying Cause and Effect in Writing,” and Part 2 (12:30-2:30pm) will focus on “The Art of Persuasion”.
Students can attend Part 1, Part 2, or both, as parts 1 and 2 will be related but distinct. There will be interactive group exercises to encourage retention, as well as an optional take-home assignment . Food will be served! Registration will open on Jan 6, 2020.”
