Scientific Writing and Presenting
(with Prof. Dr. Alfred Schultz)
This course imparts the fundamentals of scientific information and communication of scientific information and especially handles the differences between oral presentations and written texts. The course is given in two segments:
- Students learn how to prepare an oral presentation including substance and structure of text components, design and creation of illustrations, use of visual media;
- Students learn to prepare an actual scientific manuscript including adjustment of text to target group, pre- and post-processing of data/illustrations, terminology and language of text, layout, rules for submitting, dealing with reviewer comments.
Students taking the module will complete some short writing and editing exercises and will additionally develop an oral presentation/manuscript of their individual choice.
