Professional Development Masterclasses (SLS Lab Show)
On Wednesday 25 May, the Science Council hosted a Professional Development Zone at the SLS Laboratory Show and Conference. One of the features was a programme of short 15-minute masterclasses on a variety of topics, ranging from keeping skills up to date during a career break to advice on presenting better.
The slides for these masterclasses are now available online:
- Keeping your skills up to date during a career break
- Writing a first-rate CV
- Finding your next job
- Professional development for teachers & educators
- Getting professionally registered (and why it’s a good idea)
- Thinking outside the box for development opportunities
- Presenting ideas and information better
We would like to thank Suzy from Journeymen Scientists, Alice from the Royal Society of Chemistry and Tanya from the Association for Science Education for delivering some excellent presentations. The audience were also on top form, with searching questions being asked and answered throughout the day.
