GRADES:
Written Critiques and Participation: 50%
Presentation: 50%

30-40 minute presentations:
Students will present a vital research article relevant to their topic, but ideally something they have not yet mastered, so that the seminar provides both public speaking experience and enhanced mastery of the literature. Everyone will read the article in advance of the presentation, and an informal discussion will follow.
3 minute presentations:
Students will present their thesis or dissertation topic (or topic of interest for those still developing a thesis).

Students will be graded on their presentation and evaluations of those by other speakers. Grades will be based on presentation 50%, participation by asking questions of the speakers and by providing written discussions of presentations 50%.

How to provide written discussions of presentations.
SEMINAR EVALUATION FORM Fill in this form for each 30 minute presentation and turn it in through webCampus. Dr. Gustin will put all of the evaluations in one document and send them to the speaker for feedback. Undergraduates need to fill in the seminar evaluation form too and turn it in through Phys493 class on webCampus.
