Learning and Teaching Methods
The learning outcomes of this module will be developed through the literature search, the study of literature, the preparation of the presentation, the discussion with the teacher, the talk itself and answering questions about it.
Presentation materials, complementary literature
Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided;
own literature search.
Description of exams and course work
In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk of about 30 minutes on a topic of current research and actively participates in the discussion about all the talks in the seminar. Hence participation in essentially all dates of the seminar is expected. Based on the individual talk the learning outcome is tested.
Aspects of evaluation are especially:
- Illustrative and clear presentation of a topical research field within a scientific talk
- Answering questions on the scientific content of the talk
