Coaching will “zoom in” on the areas you need to focus on, address any concerns you may have about your communication skills, and help you shape and deliver your message with clarity and confidence.

Analysis of bulk RNA-seq data (ONLINE LIVE TRAINING) (3 of 3) In progress 09:30 - 17:30 Bioinformatics Training Facility - Online LIVE Training (Time Zone = BST (GMT+1) in Summer, GMT in Winter)

The aim of this course is to familiarize the participants with the primary analysis of RNA-seq data.

This course starts with a brief introduction to RNA-seq and discusses quality control issues. Next, we will present the alignment step, quantification of expression and differential expression analysis. For downstream analysis we will focus on tools available through the Bioconductor project for manipulating and analysing bulk RNA-seq.

CULP: French Intermediate 1 for Academic Purposes (LAP) (7 of 15) In progress 10:00 - 11:30 Zoom Video Communication Software

Using close reading and translation of academic texts from their particular discipline, this weekly class is intended to help research students in the Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences to develop their skills in reading French documents that they have come across or may meet in their research.

The course aims to develop strategies for reading longer texts faster through close analysis, grammatical and stylistic commentary, and translation. For example, literary texts with differing editions, stories with two or more translations into English that need to be compared and evaluated, poems of challenging originality or range of allusion.

Classes will be conducted in English, but there will be many opportunities to use French and practise reading aloud.

The Senior Tutors' Committee expects those involved in the undergraduate admissions selection process to receive appropriate training. What is appropriate will vary, depending on whether you are an experienced interviewer (who might be new to the online format, or just wanting a refresher) or someone new to admissions interviewing in Cambridge.

Experienced interviewers should study the refresher information in the 'Experienced Interviewers' section of the online Moodle course, although are welcome to sign-up for a workshop if additional training would be beneficial.

New interviewers should sign up to a workshop in their subject or a related discipline. Before attending the workshop, please study the online module. This module provides an overview of Cambridge's undergraduate admissions process and highlights some important principles and practices relating to conducting effective admissions.

These workshops for new interviewers cover the entire selection process as well as interviewing techniques. Led by Admissions Tutors, they are designed to help you make your contribution to the admissions selection process as effective as possible. They include opportunities to practise by interviewing current first-year undergraduates, using authentic paperwork, and they explain how interviews and admissions decisions relate to the University’s Access and Participation Plan agreed with the Office for Students (OfS).

The workshop will focus on mock interviews, with first-year undergraduates in related disciplines, and on discussion with an Admissions Tutor. We have asked all volunteer interviewees to consent to our circulating their application papers to participants in advance of the workshop, so that you may consider possible approaches to interviewing mock applicants.
