STEMM research writing guided activity sessions (10 July – 21 Aug 2024)

Do you want to improve your STEMM research writing?

Join CfAE’s ‘Writing a Research Paper’ and ‘Advanced academic writing‘ guided activity sessions, designed to train you to improve the effectiveness and all-round readability of your STEMM research writing.

Through a series of group activities, you will practise analysing and refining texts to help you understand how to effectively communicate the value of your research to an increasingly global and interdisciplinary readership. These sessions are interactive guided sessions, not lectures. Because of this interactive nature, please note that these sessions are not recorded.

You can also take advantage of CfAE’s online self-study learning blocks on how to write the typical sections of a research paper and how to write effectively in STEMM. Once you’ve written your first draft, you’re welcome to book a 1:1 session for advice and feedback.
