SMArt Communications Masterclasses
SMArt Communications Masterclasses are a series of hands-on workshops for UWindsor undergraduate and graduate students aimed at building critical communication skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Designed and guided by professors in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (FAHSS), these workshops teach participants how to use artistic and creative skills to enhance their communication of STEM topics. Participants also gain technical and transferable skills, challenge themselves creatively, and have the opportunity to create science-themed communication pieces of work with the support of professors from various fields, including film and media, visual arts, creative writing and music.
Currently, Masterclasses are delivered virtually and synchronously over Blackboard Collaborate. While our SMArt Masterclassses are not for course credit, participants will receive a formal Recognition of Completion from the Faculties of Science and Engineering for each Masterclass. This recognition may be useful to include in student resumes/CVs, in applications to professional programs and in career development portfolios. Science students may also use their participation in a SMArt Masterclass as a form of "Engagement" in their LEAD medallion applications.
