Teaching/learning method(s)
The course format is primarily interactive including group assignments, presentations and discussions. Students will learn to apply relevant concepts of scientific research to practical exercises discussed in class.
The final grade will be composed by individual class participation (30%), group assignments (30%) and a final written assignment (40%). Absences from class reduce overall class participation and therefore negatively impact the individual final grade.
