    Welcome to the Practice of Presenting Research -course. We will meet during period 5 in Otaniemi (seminar room R028/F102). From these pages, you will find the schedule and basic information about the course. Please also see WebOodi. Closer to the start of the course, we will ask you to complete a short questionnaire to survey your needs and course expectations.

    Preliminary plan


    Before the course starts you should do one pre-task: (1) prepare a one-minute video where you present yourself for others and (2) get to know the others by watching and replying to the videos. If you feel uncomfortable to show your own face, you may also use a drawing of yourself or a mask. You will also be asked to familiarize yourself with some online materials.

    The course starts Friday 26.4.2019 12:15-15:00
