Gladden, Andrew. One semester hour. Spring, annually. Grading System: Pass or Fail. Prerequisite: Student must be at least in their second year to take this course.
This course is designed for second-year students who have already chosen their thesis lab and are preparing for their candidacy exam. The students will use their thesis project as a template to develop a 20-minute scientific presentation. All aspects of the presentation will be covered including title and introduction slides, organizing your data into a story, model slides and conclusions, and answering questions. In addition to the 20-minute presentation, students will also give two elevator talks: one to a scientific group and one to a non-scientist group. This course is designed to prepare the student for the oral defense portion of their candidacy exam.
