Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to independently prepare a lecture, to operate the literature research as well as to hold the lecture and to guide the following discussion.

Subject of course

In this seminar, students will present their choice of 3 papers on a selected topic to the other seminar participants in a 30 minutes talk; the selected topic will be taken from a list within the scientific field of "Single Molecule Microscopy". Prior to their seminar, the students will be supervised during the preparation: I will discuss the selection of research papers (2 weeks before the seminar), and the presentation itself (1 week before the seminar). I will provide feedback after the seminar to each student individually. In addition to holding their presentation, students will also be responsible for chairing the sessions, and for discussing the presentations. 

Students may select from a list of topics, but are also welcome to select their own topic.
