Primary Instructor:

A critical component of science is transmitting the results of scientific research to the greater scientific community. If the results of research are not made available to other scientists, they never enter into the great debate, and the research may as well never have been conducted. For this reason, it is important to learn how to communicate research to other scientists, and to evaluate the research of others. Research presentations are one of the major avenues scientists use to transmit information (publication in peer-reviewed journals is another).

We have two goals in EEB 335. First, you should learn how to extract critical information from a research seminar. Second, you should learn the characteristics that distinguish a good seminar from a bad seminar. To accomplish these goals, you will attend one seminar each week. You will then write up a short summary of the seminar, and discuss the seminar in discussion the following week.
