CHEN50050 Research Seminar Series II

Academic Year 2023/2024

This module will consolidate students' practice of effective oral presentation of work of a scientific and technical nature. Each student will be expected to make at least one oral presentation to an audience comprised of both experts and non-experts in the field, and be responsible for the advertising of their scheduled talk. Students are also expected to attend all seminars associated with this module and, when requested, deliver a report of the key elements discussed at any particular seminar. Students will receive feedback from attending academics and students regarding the quality of presentations and the means of improvement, where appropriate.
