Can a course be thrilling and informative? This is a very practical course. There are ample examples of live edits turning impenetrable scientific writing from unfamiliar fields into a clear message a broad audience could understand.

The course is well organized, focused on correct things and the instructor is very clear in explanation.
I would have preferred having more exercises on writing abstracts, paragraphs and so on. But the course is worth it. Thank you.
