An interdisciplinary introduction to the ways in which data can be used to enhance thinking and decision-making capacities, including using simple statistical techniques, creating visual representations of quantitative data, deriving accurate conclusions from quantitative data, and using data effectively in analyses and arguments. Assignments build capacity to evaluate and write clearly about quantitative evidence using methods for analyzing and communicating about data that do not require complex mathematics.
The project will be a multimodal multi-layered presentation, most likely presented as a slide show. However, students are welcome to propose for approval alternative media presentations. Creativity in the choice of presentation medium is encouraged! Students are also encouraged to use their own voices in this presentation. This is not strictly academic writing. Because this is an exercise in deepening personal understanding of a complex topic, colloquialisms and speaking in a vernacular are encouraged in the presentation. Students should carefully select a color pallet and include at least 6 images that reflect their voice and understanding of rhetoric.
Intended for students who have no background in the Spanish language, this course facilitates effective communication between patients and their healthcare providers (nurses, doctors, medical staff), through emphasis on basic, practical language needed to communicate with Spanish-speaking patients and their families in various settings. Building basic language fluency at the same time as medical terminology with cultural competency woven throughout, students will learn to gather and share basic information like greetings, goodbyes, patient intake, discussion of symptoms, location of pain and injuries, body parts, numbers, time, doses, and units of measure. Focus is on learning and becoming comfortable with basic medical Spanish phrases and medical Spanish vocabulary.
