:: Spring 2011 ::
CLASS CONTEXT —I proposed and developed this class for the School of Art and Art History of the University of Florida, to offer students around campus and from different majors the opportunity to learn graphic design basics, to be applied in the communication of different kinds of information, research, and data. My class was composed by students from a wide variety of non-art related departments, such as Biology, Biochemistry, Criminology, English, and Physics.
CLASS DESCRIPTION— Visualizing Science is a course that offers a comprehensive overview and application of design principles as they relate to information design, in order to visualize research in the sciences and humanities. Students will learn how to transform research data and existing information (including their own research) to a range of different visual mediums in order to improve communication and reception of research materials for different audiences and different spaces.
