This course provides an opportunity for the participants to: A) submit and review proposals and make presentations as if they were doing so for a scientific conference.
Each week a student will give a 45 minute presentation of her/his research. Each presentation will be followed by a 45 minute Q & A session.
Each student must email their proposal to the instructor and all the course participants by the Monday prior to their presentation. The proposal must be 5 pages long, single spaced, Times New Roman font, including references, not including tables and figures which will come at the end of the proposal.
The non-presenting students will prepare a written review of the proposal and send them to the presenter and the instructor by the Thursday prior to the presentation. The critique should follow the JRST guidelines for reviewing a manuscript.
