Course Synopsis

In this seminar-format class students will learn how to design, develop, and evaluate a small multimedia natural history exhibit related to the content of the Panama PIRE project.* While this course will focus on the content of the Panama PIRE (geology, paleontology, biodiversity), the theoretical framework and best practices learned will be generally applicable to other exhibits with STEM content.


The students' grade will be based on: classroom assignments (25%); attendance and participation (25%); and a group project-deliverable (50%).


There is no assigned text; readings and related assignments will be taken from the primary literature and web resources.
