Week 3 - "Finding the Story Behind Your Research" with Tim Miller

Submitted by dnavon on Wed, 02/15/2017 - 10:12

Instead of writing a summary about this week's class, I decided to publish my sketchnotes from last year's talk (see above).  Sketchnoting can be a great way to engage with seminar content WHILE creating sci comm materials!  I learned about sketchnoting at this year's conference for the Society for Integrative & Comparative Biology, and I've been practicing it ever since.  We humans are visual creatures, so communicating with more visual media is always encouraged!  We'll talk more about that later in the semester ;)

I will ask Shana to see if Tim will release his slides just for our class.  I will ask that you not share those with anyone.

I apologize that I didn't get a chance to announce your homework in class, but better late than never!  To prep for next week, please read the following article by Andrew Hendry, an evolutionary biologist at McGill.  In it, he provides another example of a narrative structure that works well in science.  We'll be practicing it next week by trying to find it in either your own research or a primary literature article from your field.  So in addition to reading the article, please also decide whether you want to use your own work for the workshop or a primary literature article.  If the latter, please find and bring in an article to use.

That's all I have for this week!  See you on Monday back in French 209.
