In the TK seminar, the students are expected to report on current research topics and present their own conclusions. Course participants will select one topic of interest and write a short report (4-5 pages) about as a scientific paper. Furthermore, course participants will learn how to review scientific reports, and will test their skills by evaluating the reports from their colleagues. In addition, they will present their work to their colleagues and instructors. Apart from the presentation, there will also be an open discussion about the topic and the presentation.
The goal of this course is not only to introduce the student to a new research topic, but also to prepare the students for giving scientific talks and address an audience. An introduction to the academic work on how to write, publish, and present your finding will be given in the beginning of the course.
