Meteo 482: Weather Communications II Overview


WEATHER COMMUNICATIONS II (3) Multi-instructor workshop designed to mimic real-life applications of weather communications in industry, broadcasting, the courtroom, and the classroom. Prerequisite: METEO 481


Welcome to the Weather Communications II web page!  This class has been created specifically to address the communication of weather information.  The weather can be communicated through a variety of means including web pages, newspapers, and audio and video broadcasting.  Weather Communications II has a unique format: A variety of teachers lead students through professional workshops that address different types of weather communication and their application in the real-world.  Each assignment is varied and interesting; for example, students create an online teaching tutorial for younger students.  Each student will create a personalized website containing their resumé and samples of their work, including video, audio, and writing.  Students also have the chance to learn about job opportunities ranging from on-air television personality to applying meteorology to business.  Most importantly, Weather Communications II teaches students the importance of communicating all ideas effectively, not only the weather.
