Intended learning outcomes

The course aims to provide knowledge to communicate results and the need for advanced life science research to a variable audience, with focus on scientific communication. A major effort is the chosen life science research project or field that is to be exposed to the audience. The course will:

  • Provide a deep insight into a top field or research project within the life sciences
  • Provide different communication strategies
  • Increase the skill of written and oral communication

Course content

A research project/field within the life sciences is thoroughly studied. Different methods to communicate results and hypotheses are explored. The students present unprepared topics orally. The final practical exam is mandatory.

Teaching and working methods

The course has a number of lectures and a seminar series where the student trains the verbal communication skills in oral and written form. A research project/field within the life sciences is thoroughly studied in the supervision of a skilled scientific investigator. The course is finalized in a conference where the student presents the research project/field.
The course runs over the entire autumn semester.
