    Note! Due to large group and limited time, the instructions for presentations are changed: prepare one or max. two slides, where you present the topic, background and most interesting findings of your essay. You have maximum 5 min for the presentation, so please be careful with the timing. Presentation of the essay is mandatory part of the course completion and I encourage you to be present the whole session to listen to others. Please check the schedule for presentations below. In case you need to switch places with someone, contact the person(s) directly (or use the discussion forum on course front page), and let me know about the change.
