WKSH 8582 Visual Communication of Scientific Information

Emphasis will be given to navigating the transition between communication to experts and communicating to the public both for informational and activist purposes. Tufte’s classic text, “The Visual Display of Quantitative Information” plus his enthusiastic critique of PowerPoint templates will be used to introduce basic concepts (e.g. causation and correlation) and practices. Other information such as human water use, opinion polls and voting patterns will also be covered as well as global warming and climate change. Recent developments and the latest challenges in visualizing scientific information and complex networks will be presented. The course will be concluded by evaluation and critiquing visualizations chosen by students according to their own interests.

We will discuss the immediate and long-term effects of U.S. and other counter-terrorism actions throughout the world. We will try to define counter-terrorism by examining its multiple layers from pre-diplomatic assessment, government intervention through the use of military and armed conflict, to post action evaluation.

As individual consumers continue to be concerned about global warming trends, the welfare of the environment and sustainability of global ecosystems, the demand for Green products and services expands. Marketers must determine whether they need to adapt their Marketing strategies to a Greening process in order to comply with global customer demands.
