  • Introduction: Some comments about the total schedule of the seminar and some "how to's" for preparing a talk (using media, preparing slides, feeback)
  • 5 minute summaries: all students present a very short summary (at most 5 minutes each)

Preparing and processing your talk

I recommend to prepare the talk in english. However, if you feel uncomfartable giving a talk in english you may give the talk in german (in which case I ask you to come to my office for a little discussion about this issue).

Each talk should take about 60 to 65 minutes. The remaining time is reserved for repetitions of last week talks (before the current one) and discussions after the talk.

Every participant must make an appointment with me until at least two weeks before the talk. At this point he/she should have already an idea about the general topic and what parts to present.

There are no general specifications about the embodiment of the talks. Especially the choice of media should be thought through in detail, and may vary during the talk.
