Skylight collaborated with ScWRL and WAC+ to develop collections of science communication resources.
A suite of open science-specific writing resources. For students, there are informative worksheets, videos, examples and practice quizzes. For instructors, there are tips for incorporating writing into the classroom, including sample lesson plans, activities for blended classrooms and a podcast series.
Through workshops, a community of practice, consultations, and classroom visits, the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program supports the teaching and learning of writing in the sciences. New funding has allowed us to expand to other types of communication (WAC+), such as oral presentations and multimedia formats. The program aims to engage colleagues across the sciences and create a peer group for sharing best practices, resources and perspectives on science-specific communication.
