I must say that this course exceeded my expectations. Since day one, I got the feeling that this would be a game-changer in terms of scientific writing. I am not talking about scientific writing itself, but rather the way ideas can be presented to be better understood by different audiences, even among fellow scientists.
Regarding the impact this had on my work, after two days, I understood how my project could be massively improved. Just the fact that I had to pitch it to other people, with different training and from different science fields, was enough to make me see that the proposal was not clear enough.
Also, the 1:1 time with Magdalena taught me so much about writing a grant proposal. I was flabbergasted.
It was a great experience and one I am going to recommend to all my colleagues.
