Progress to date

Today we have begun to redesign the practical activities for the Basic Skills course. The Moodle context requires a greater emphasis on the activity as opposed to the chalk aand talk sections.  This is good!

We will be gradually developing the Moodle platform and transferring content to it during the next few months.

About the Courses

These courses were developed over a series of years in a variety of medical and biomedical research departments in Brazil.

Research output is a key driver in the triennial assessment exercise, so understanding why some research fails to get published is a key issue. Our analysis showed that although students receive a good disciplinary training, they are taught little about the skills required to do good research suitable for publication in an international journal.

The courses presented here are designed to address these needs.
