I also decided to completely refresh my home pages for each of my blog categories "Research", "Teaching", and "Life". During these edits, I decided that "Teaching" didn't accurately encompass my ideas for what that section of the blog should contain. I wanted to be able to talk about my teaching experiences, but also wanted to bring in discussions and ideas for reaching audiences outside of the classroom. So now, "Teaching" has become "Sci Comm" - short for "Scientific Communication".
The concept of sci comm has been around so long that it is actually it's own field of study, complete with two journals dedicated to this field of research: Science Communication and Public Understanding of Science. I have become absolutely fascinated by the perspectives of this field, and am always eager to discuss techniques and tips with people (and with you guys) in my attempts to be an effective communicator. This very blog is an example of my efforts to communicate science and science-y things with you :) Oh and also cats and baked goods, but you get the gist.
