Summaries

Summary Sentence: Learn visualization techniques to help you craft an effective abstract

Full Summary: In this workshop, you will learn visualization techniques to help you craft an abstract that captures your audience’s attention. By using the drawing process, you'll practice communicating your research clearly and succinctly. This session is modeled after workshops that researcher and cartoonist Lynda Barry has been running with researchers at UW-Madison--from professors in biology to undergraduates in education and graduate students in engineering. By making and explaining drawings about their research, participants will improve their ability to discuss their work with various audiences in the context of conference abstracts. No artistic ability necessary.   Please RSVP to commlab@gatech.edu as space is limited to twenty participants.
