      Course Description
    This course is designed to introduce students to the ways that biologists communicate, both with each other and with the broader public. The focus will be threefold: 1) Describing data, 2) Describing process & product, and 3) Presenting biology. There will be assignments in each of these sections of the course that allow students to gain skills with scientific styles and modes of expression. The aim will be to foster confidence in a scientific style of communication, one which is often quite different from that taught in the humanities. Conciseness, clarity, and exactness will be the hallmarks of successful written and oral products in the course. At the completion of Communicating in Biological Sciences students should have developed each of these traits in their written and oral expression.
