When writing about science, don't simplify the science; simplify the writing.

Julie Ann Miller, former editor of Science News

Focused around a one- day intensive seminar, this course will examine:

  • How to present data-based evidence
  • Why good technical writing matters
  • What is good technical writing
  • How may it be achieved

This three week course will provide delegates with the knowledge, skill and confidence to enable them to produce clear, readable and effective technical reports that raise both the delegate’s professional credibility and their organisations ability to provide well-articulated technical solutions.

This course is also a 5 credit University of Liverpool Post-Graduate taught module that can contribute to a 35 credit Postgraduate award.

This course can also be delivered on a bespoke basis for a single organisation or consortium. Interested organisations, please contact Nick Palmer, 0151 794 8296 to discuss.
