Subject of course

In this course students get acquainted with methods of scientific work and research.

A review is performed for the written documents, and the presentation style is analyzed in the group.

Didactic concept: The writing and presentation of a scientific paper is directly exercised by the student at the example of the assigned topic. This encompasses the literature search (including the filtering of irrelevant/non-trustworthy sources), the concise and precise written summary, the reviewing procedure, as well as the oral presentation under given time constraints. Many topics are available for group work (related subjects pertaining to a common topic), which improves the teamworking skills.
