New class for undergraduates

Monday, April 28, 2014

 

A new course at KU this spring is helping undergraduates become better communicators.

Prof DepcikWith a $3,000 grant from the American Chemical Society, education director Claudia Bode, director of chemistry laboratories Roderick Black and ecology professor Val Smith are designing the course.  It features lectures from renowned communicators, such as mechanical engineering associate professor Chris Depcik (left).  A capstone outreach activity at the KU Natural History Museum gives students a chance to practice communicating to the public.

“Communication is one of the skills most valued by employers,” said Bode. “Learning how to do it effectively will help students compete for jobs and advance their careers.”
