The course involves weekly formal presentations by graduate students on their research projects. The presentations include description of experimental design, approaches and methods, analysis, conclusions, and future directions, as well as details of problems encountered and potential solutions. Active discussion among the participants is encouraged to develop science communication skills, to share new ideas and interpretations, and to introduce novel approaches that facilitate progress. First-year graduate students are expected to present a summary of the work accomplished during the rotation period. Students working on advanced research projects are expected to present more formal seminars to practice public-speaking skills and prepare to defend their dissertation research. The class meets for a 60-minute period once every week. This course is required of all graduate students.
