Scientific Communication Skills: The Transition from Further Education to Higher Education in the UK
Rees, Alun; Wilkinson, Myra
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n9 p33-40 Sep 2008
The study investigates the development of scientific communication skills in Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) students studying science in the UK. Perspectives are gained from students and staff in both sectors. Evidence suggests that a mis-match in expectations exists and the onus may be on HE to explore more effective and innovative ways of developing scientific writing skills in new entrants. (Contains 4 tables and 5 figures.)
