To provide scientists with an opportunity to build their understanding, skills and confidence in good scientific practice.
Good scientific practice
- Develop investigative strategies/procedures/processes that take account of relevant scientific and other sources of information
- Critically evaluate data, draw conclusions from it, formulate actions and recommend further investigations where appropriate
- Beware of confirmation bias in planning, pursuing and analyzing experiments
- Provide clear reports using appropriate methods of analysing, summarising and displaying information
- Detoxify your language by using subjective I-statement
- Be fair, balance, timely
- Adapt to the situation
- Be constructive and give always examples
A balanced and structured program of interactive lectures, challenging activities outside of the “comfort zone” and review sessions will provide a variety of first-hand learning situations allowing participants to identify and take away relevant lessons. Facilitators are habilitated scientists and successful group leaders in the natural sciences.
The course is offered as an interactive virtual training course.
