Organization

Students are divided in six groups (two students/group). Each group has a special responsibility for one of the articles, but all students must read all articles and should be prepared to take active part in the seminar discussions.
 
In each seminar, there will be two presenting groups, presenting one article each. Before the seminar, all groups shall meet to discuss the two articles in question (as you are now so few students, we will merge the groups for the discussions, see the schedule above). All group members must take part in the discussion. This meeting shall result in 2-3 or 3-5 (see schedule above) relevant questions that you then send by email to the presenting group and to Karin Enander, four working days before the seminar at the latest (see deadlines below). It is very important that you deliver your questions on time! An email list is provided above with addresses to one student in each group in order for you to know where to send the questions.
 
Deadlines for submitting questions:
Seminar 1: Monday Sept 15
Seminar 2: Thursday Sept 25
Seminar 3: Thursday Oct 2
 
The presenting group has to make sure that all other groups have contributed with questions. During the seminar, each presenting group should
  • present the content of the article with suitable illustrations from the article or elsewhere. It is important to cover the background, the methodology, the results and the most important conclusions. In some cases you will probably need to search for more information than available from the article itself about the research area in question, the methods etc. If supporting material is available for the article, that may also be of help. Note: your presentation must include one summarizing slide that illustrates the article as a whole. This slide should be sent to Karin Enander by email the day before the seminar. It should not be a block of text but rather a graphical illustration (e. g. a flow chart or some kind of ”mind map”). Feel free to create this slide the way that is most suitable for your article.
  • express what you think about the quality of the article and its ’readability’ (was it easy or difficult to read? was the content well-organized? etc).
  • present all questions sent to you from the other groups and do your best to answer them.
Some general hints on presentation technique:
  • Giving a presentation is like acting. In this case, you know that everyone in the room knows the story, but you must pretend they do not. This means, among other things, that you must take care to put the topic of your article into context already at the beginning of the presentation. What was the purpose of the study and why is this interesting?
  • When you prepare your presentation, ask yourself if the audience at the back of the seminar room will be able to see the text and the important details of you illustrations.
  • Like in acting, a good presentation is a result of rehearsal. You should put effort into becoming as independent of your manuscript as possible.
 
The group presentation should be 10-15 minutes (if you are a single presenter) or 20-25 minutes (if you are presenting in a group of two students). We will then have time for feedback and discussion. The goal is to achieve seminar discussions involving not only the presenting group but all other students as well.
