How do you interpret a chemistry class? Describe osmosis? What’s the sign for photosynthesis? How can you visually describe schizophrenia? This 2-day training will help participants develop general tools for dealing with specialized vocabulary in several branches of scientific study. Participants will broaden the use of their already developed skills to turn jargon into understandable and sign-able concepts.
At the conclusion of this workshop, the participants will be able to:
- List several models for vocabulary breakdown and translation strategies.
- Identify opportunities to translate specialized vocabulary into appropriate visual terms without losing conceptual meaning.
- Demonstrate translation of specialized vocabulary using visual language strategies.
