Back to basics

Following last month's discussion, James Wallace made the useful observation that, since the bulk of people attending the researchers' group are PhD students, it would be helpful to have occasional talks on some of the basic skills needed for any researcher.  Two subjects he suggested were presenting and posters.

Not only was James forthcoming with his suggestions, he was also prepared to back them up by volunteering his services.  He kindly offered to lead this month's discussion on presenting.  He provided a useful blog entry in advance of the session which I took the liberty of editing a little.  James' original entry asserted that it is important for young researchers to develop the ability to communicate details of their projects.  I edited it to read "All researchers need to learn to communicate details of their projects to a wider audience."
