Thursday 23 February
Dr Marina Hurley teaches science and academic writing from a broad perspective that covers all evidence-based disciplines.
Marina Hurley, founder and manager of Writing Clear Science, is a scientist with a background in ecology who now specialises in the teaching of scientific and academic writing. Marina is a Visiting Fellow at the University of New South Wales and regularly travels across Australia to deliver writing workshops.
Marina has an exceptionally clear understanding of the link between thinking and writing and has developed her unique approach of teaching science writing into the Writing Clear Science Writing Workshops. Marina’s article “What’s Your Problem? – A practical approach to document design” (Writing Matters 2012), is based upon a popular workshop exercise that she developed in 2005. Since then Marina has run over 130 writing workshops.
ASC2017 delegates are eligible for 20% off Writing Clear Science workshops in Adelaide a few days before the conference, see the session page for more details.

How does this session contribute to Seeing Science Differently?
When writing about an in-depth science topic, it is common for people to struggle with conceptualising their subject manner easily and efficiently. In this workshop, participants are shown how to view their topic clearly.
