Prof. Kristin Sainani, Stanford University will deliver an interactive session, and we will feature pre-recorded lecture videos from the “Writing in the Sciences” course offered by Stanford Online.
All Participants are encouraged to enroll in Stanford Online or Coursera to follow the course materials prior to the workshop. Participants who already completed the Writing in the Sciences course are encouraged to join the live session only.
For attending the live session, participants will be asked to participate in a quiz to verify that they went through the materials for the workshop.
