Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
(40% talks, 40% paper, 20% discussion participation)
The course should be highly interactive and practical (performing experiments and statistics) with students elaborating their own group projects (presentation of a preferred topic chosen from this field (i.e. the topic of the seminar). This will be chosen during the first 14 days of course after brain storming period in the first session, thus fixed in the second/third session. Additionally students can bring in own material and ideas presented in a first series of “brainstorm” mini presentations as result of the literature search (alone or in focus groups). Students should discuss their findings and thoughts in class and produce a presentation of their own findings and research results (second presentation in class) and write a final paper about the chosen research topic.
