A course to improve scientific and communication skills

December 22, 2009 Filed under Blog, Resources 

Here is the abstract of the talk that I will be giving at the AMS Annual Meeting in Atlanta about the 14-week university course that I designed based on the book Eloquent Science.

To improve writing skills, a student needs to write more and write more often. Thus, I tried to minimize the lecture material in the course and increase the number of in-class assignments and homework assignments where the students wrote. Read more about this course in the preprint, linked below, including ways for instructors to incorporate more writing exercises in their own regular curricula classes in atmospheric science.
