Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The lectures will familiarize students with the most important issues in writing scientific articles, making oral and poster conference presentations, and reviewing others work. Examples of well and purely done work will be presented and discussed with students to pinpoint most important and common mistakes, and to learn the principles of good writing and presenting the work. During workshops students will learn how to search and evaluate scientific information, and how to communicate science to the public; students will be interviewed about different topics related to their specialties, but also to issues of more general interest .

Each student will submit a short research article and a review of a manuscript. This will require effective use of the skills learned in the first part of the course: information search, its verification, and summarizing the acquired knowledge. Each student will also give oral presentation which will be followed by discussion, simulating conditions of a typical scientific meeting. This will expose students to possible problems with understanding questions and formulating clear replies. The talks and discussions will be taped and analyzed later by the whole group, under teacher’s supervision. Students will also prepare posters, which will be reviewed by teachers and fellow students.

Five lectures will be given in 2x45 min blocks (10 contact hours). There will 20 contact hours of workshops arranged in 5 meetings, 4 lecture hours (45 min) each. To assure high teaching efficiency, groups should not be larger than 12 students.

Materials for the course will be available on the course web page, and handouts for specific topics will be distributed among students.
