Picturing the Uncertain World | Princeton University PressIn this article we take a short look at the role of communication in teaching. The article aims to make readers more aware of the importance of communication in teaching, and hopes to give some ideas of how readers can improve their own teaching practice. Hubley has shown us that communication is a complex process Fig. To be effective, teachers have to try to minimise these barriers to communication. We do this in a number of ways — for example, by making sure that the room is quiet and well lit; by speaking slowly and clearly; by only using words which the students should be able to understand. However, the most important way to overcome the barriers is two-way communication Fig. This means getting regular feedback from the receivers the students in this case : are they really understanding what we are trying to put across?

In his entertaining and informative book Graphic Discovery , Howard Wainer unlocked the power of graphical display to make complex problems clear. Picturing the Uncertain World takes readers on an extraordinary graphical adventure, revealing how the visual communication of data offers answers to vexing questions yet also highlights the measure of uncertainty in almost everything we do. Are cancer rates higher or lower in rural communities? And where exactly did nineteenth-century novelists get their ideas? These are some of the fascinating questions Wainer invites readers to consider. We live in a world full of uncertainty, yet it is within our grasp to take its measure.
