This workshop will include a presentation and hands-on exercises addressing the too often ignored component of communication: the visual expression of data and concepts. Just as in writing text, creating visual representations is not only a means of communication but also a process that itself advances and clarifies thinking.

Writing Across the Curriculum IAP workshops are open to MIT faculty and teaching assistants who are interested in integrating writing and speaking into their subjects.
