Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course introduces students to best practices in scientific working and will guide them through finding a research question, writing a research paper, and presenting a research topic. In particular, we will cover:

• Theory and organisation of Science
• Critical reading of research articles
• Scientific writing: literature review, citation, and style
• Data visualisation
• Presentation and feedback skills

METHODS: The lecturers will introduce the students to the topics listed above, both via presentations and interactive components. The students will apply what they learn in their essay, presentations, in-class exercises, and take-home assignments. This course also provides short one-on-one sessions in which students receive individual feedback on their scientific essay.

LEARNING OUTCOME: After this course, students will (i) know about the theory of science, (ii) understand how science is organised today, (iii) be able to define their own research question, (iv) be able to find and critically read relevant literature, (v) be able to write a well-structured scientific essay including a literature review, and (vi) know how to effectively present their research considering best practices in (data) visualisation.

(ii) Presentations (35%): Students will give two presentations. A short one, pitching their research idea at the beginning of the course, and a longer one, presenting their research topic towards the end of the course.

(iii) Active participation (25%): Students are asked to actively participate in class. Moreover, they are expected to work on short take-home assignments such as critically reading a research article or providing peer feedback to their colleagues.
