Science communication course

On October 31, IAN collaborated with Future Earth Coasts to teach the last lecture in their Monsoon School series of classes. The course was organized so that students from across the world attended a 6-day series of lectures and worked together to apply the concepts and tools they learned to tangible research projects. Our science communication lecture, taught by Joe Edgerton, Ann Foo, and Heath Kelsey, covered the importance of good science communication, narrative structure, data visualization, design, and long-term evaluation of transdisciplinary projects. The three-hour course focused on providing tools, techniques, and resources for effective science communication. We were glad to have such an inquisitive and engaged group of students to work with, and hope to see the results of their work soon.
