The Science Writing Resources for Learning (ScWRL) project brings together students, faculty, educational strategists, specialist science writers, writing centre professionals and tutors at the University of British Columbia with a combined interest in science communication.
Specifically, the team wishes to provide students with the resources they need to learn – and educators the resources they need to teach – the most important skills associated with good science writing. Since the onset of the project in 2012, the team has focused on developing these freely available resources to address the skills that students find especially difficult to master, based on student feedback and rigorous assessment of scientific written work.

Students can access all of the student resources without registering their details, but educators must first complete out our access request and feedback form to access the educator resources, which include rubrics and solutions to complete lesson plans, activities and assignments.
We also encourage our fans to follow us on Twitter, Facebook and SoundCloud to make sure you don’t miss any new resources as they are added. We welcome engagement and would love to hear how you have used our resources, and whether you have ideas for others you would like us to develop in the future.
