How do college professors get their students excited about science? One possible way is through the effective use of scientific images, such as slides, enlarged images, and so on. This essay on just that subject was originally published in "Life Sciences Education" and was authored by Fiona L. Watson and Barbara Lom of Davidson College's department of biology and program in neuroscience. In this 9-page document the two look at how a group of students improved their visual literacy skills over the time of an upper-level biology laboratory course. Visitors can read over the document to learn how their project was constructed, and along the way they may discover on how to improve on their own classroom materials.
