New Course: Comm 5665 Sci Comm Practicum

Back by popular demand! Effective communication requires knowledge of information dissemination, audience response, quality writing and presentation. In this weekend intensive course, science and technology students will receive hands-on practice developing several critical forms of information communication for nonscientists. Students will receive individualized attention, critique and editorial support from two instructors. Creating an effective abstract for lay audiences , press release, writing for the Internet, using visual information and slide presentation will be covered.  Scientists today can communicate directly with their audiences. Learn how to be an effective communicator for a lifetime of impact.
