Kirsop Labs

Skills development for science students everywhere

Innovative Learning Week (ILW)

Innovative Learning Week is proving to be a great success for the KirsopLabs project. Of the 8 students who attended the first workshop in 2013, 3 continued to work with the editor to complete their articles, and now have published work that they can add to their CV. The most recent ILW workshop in 2014 has given us 2 new student writers with one article published so far.

We didn’t run ILW in 2015 but are intending to do another one in February 2016. If anyone is interested in taking part then just let us know. We’re opening it up to students across every year (1-5) so all are welcome.

Here are the student articles:

Surviving First Year Chemical Physics – by Lisa Duff

5 Ways to Ace the Chemistry Labs – by Veselina Marinova

Creating Your First Presentation – by Olga Fuhrmann

It’s Exam Season – Are You Ready? – by Dom Gibson
