Expert trainer-led workshops

Being successful in academia requires numerous skills across the research life cycle. However, many early to mid-career researchers do not receive the necessary training to achieve this. 

The Nature Masterclasses team have developed a series of interactive workshops to support researchers across a range of essential topics, such as scientific writing and publishing, academic presentations, communicating science to the public, and many more. These workshops include activities to allow participants to put learned content into practice and promote active learning. 

Workshops are delivered live, either in person or virtually, to facilitate discussion and Q&A sessions between the participants and the trainer.

The presentation material was prepared very well, and especially the way the presentation was delivered, I can say it was the best presentation I have ever attended

 An extraordinary overview and insights shared that vastly enhanced my knowledge. Many thanks!

The teacher was full of passion and spoke everything clearly. What's more, the structure of the material was very clear. There were lots of activities and polls which helped students to learn better. In general, it was an excellent course.
