Design Theory in Science Communication

Students study the theory of design and its application to science communication. Main topics include Content Design - conceptual organization of scientific knowledge for learnability; Format Design - selection of modes and protocols of presentation for effective 'free choice' learning; Production Design - development of communication artifacts within project standards and constraints. The theoretical and critical knowledge gained through this course prepares students for more practice-based components of the SCOM program. (lec/lab 3) cr 3
