New blog: Mind the Science Gap

I’ve added a new blog from the School of Public Health to our blog roll, Mind the Science Gap.  Check it out–read & comment!

For ten weeks between January and April 2012, Masters of Public Health students from the University of Michigan will each be posting weekly articles as they learn how to translate complex science into something a broad audience can understand and appreciate.

Each week, ten students will take a recent scientific publication or emerging area of scientific interest, and write a post on it that is aimed at a non expert and non technical audience.  As the ten weeks progress, they will be encouraged to develop their own area of focus and their own style.

And they will be evaluated in the most brutal way possible – by the audience they are writing for!  As this is a public initiative, comments and critiques on each post will be encouraged, and author responses expected.

  1. Sounds like what I’m trying to do.

    So naturally I’ll be one of the first to jump on board the critical train!
