A guest post by Matt Taylor
I am taking a graphic design class this summer as part of my Master’s in Educational Technology program at Boise State University. The project-based course is teaching me to create graphics for education. Mine are biology-related, target introductory biology students, and they align with the “Preserving Biodiversity” chapter of Hoefnagels’ textbooks, so I thought you might be interested in seeing them. Below is the graphic that I designed last week. It’s called “We Need Biodiversity” and sets the stage for the other graphics that I’ll create through the summer (including topics such as pollution, climate change, overexploitation of other species, recycling, and other ways that ordinary people can help preserve the biosphere).
I’ll post other infographics as I make them. Please feel free to use this one in your classroom if you’d like.
