Employee Development - Writing Series

We are very fortunate to have in-house experts who have volunteered to share their experiences, tricks of the trade, etc. to discuss writing in a scientific environment. One of these courses, was presented by fellow scientists, Karsten Pruess and Yu-Shu Wu (both are now ESD Affiliates) several years ago, with much interest. In 2007 and 2010 we presented the return of Karsten and Yu-Shu and added another course offered by ESD's Technical Writer/Editor, Dan Hawkes. Over the past few years, Dan's course was presented through LBNL's Berkeley Lab Learning Institute and was offered Lab-wide. In October 2013, ESD brought the Writing Series back and this year we added  Stefan Finsterle as a presenter.

These courses were just recently offered (October 2013). If you have any questions or are interested in similar courses or information, please feel free to contact the individuals noted below.
