“Al terminar el curso, mi balance del mismo es altamente positivo. Ha sido una gran experiencia de aprendizaje, en muchos sentidos, no sólo en cuanto a la adquisición de conocimientos y habilidades para la escritura de textos científicos. Coincido con los compañeros en que hemos tenido un curso con contenidos valiosos, buenas estrategias de enseñanza-aprendizaje, unas excelentes facilitadoras y una amplia gama de aportaciones interesantísimas dadas por los compañeros de los dos grupos.

Por todo ello, ¡muchas gracias!”

“After finishing the course, my evaluation of it is highly positive. It was a great learning experience in many ways, not only in terms of acquiring knowledge and skills for writing scientific texts. I agree with colleagues that we have had a course with valuable content, good teaching and learning strategies, great facilitators and a wide range of very interesting contributions given by colleagues in the two groups.

Therefore, thank you very much!”
