Julie Reynolds, associate professor in the Biology Department at Duke University and author of the popular book How Do I Write a Science Paper?, will visit IUP September 17–18, 2014, to discuss incorporating writing skills into the science curriculum in events hosted by the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and the Liberal Studies Program.

Reynolds will give a public seminar on September 17 at 3:30 p.m. in room 208, Weyandt Hall, and lead a series of workshops in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics on September 18. A reception with Reynolds will be held at the Artists Hand Gallery on September 18 at 5:00 p.m., after the workshops.

Reynolds is noteworthy for her in-depth research in the field of writing-to-learn pedagogies and her popular book How Do I Write A Scientific Paper? A College Student’s Primer on Fundamentals and Tips for Success. 

Reynolds’s visit to the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is part of the college’s efforts to help students develop strong skills in scientific writing and bolster their efficiency as scientists. Related programs, such as the recent collaboration between the Writing Center and the Research Experience for Summer Scholars, contribute in helping to prepare students to be active in the scientific community.
