Students in BIOL 261, "Animal Behavior," reported on recent publications, focusing on how to communicate the science in an engaging way to a non-specialist. They also created or commissioned figures to accompany their written work.
Reflections on Place
Students in ENVS 191, "Reading the Ohio Landscape," become acquainted with a spot on campus — visiting each week, observing their surroundings and recording observations. They then crafted personal narratives that wove together their experiences with scientific concepts connected to the course.
In spring 2020, students in English 404, "Science Writing," were asked to tell a 300-word story about their experiences with the coronavirus, but science could play no part. They then participated in virtual workshops, did additional research, and finally added science to their stories, giving them more depth and tension.
