About This Project

Science professors generally don't have the time or expertise to teach cross-cutting skills like communication. So, students graduate equipped with scientific knowledge but not the communication skills they need to benefit from that knowledge.

I hypothesize that we can train students to be significantly better communicators by incorporating short communication lessons into their science classes. The intervention will be assessed by blind reviews of student writing.

Blast off!
