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.
