MCB 533: How to give a Scientific Seminar

Description

A crucial part of a scientific career is the ability to effectively deliver a research seminar. This course will focus on all aspects of giving a seminar and teach students how to introduce the research topic, how to make clear and effective slides, and how to explain methods and data in a clear manner. Students will prepare their own research seminar throughout the course. Each week they will practice a part of it and receive feedback from other students and the instructors. By the end of the course, students will have an entire seminar about their thesis project prepared. The course will also give examples of good and bad seminars and help students learn how to communicate with non-scientists about their research. This course is offered in even years.
