NGS-GS6882A Presentation 1

To create greater transparency, I will share what I will be looking for when assessing your presentation next week.

For the scientific article, ask yourself the following questions,
(1) what is the status of the research field prior to the publication of the article?
(2) what are the "major" knowledge gap in this research area at that period?
(3) if and how the authors try to address this gap?
(4) what are the experimental models and tools the authors used? Why did they choose these models and tools?
(5) Are you able to identify other approaches or tools that can be used to answer these questions?
(6) do the results support the conclusions?
(7) how do the results contribute to the knowledge "gap"?
(8) what should be the next stage of investigation?

Good luck!


LSM4213 SDL3

SDL in this module used to be individual effort. However, we will realize that in the "working" world, we have to work in group as teamplayer. Your group members are unlikely to be your good friends and they are likely to have different personalities.

Hence, starting this year, i decide to implement group work for my SDL. I strongly encourage you to form team with others that you do not know instead of gathering all the familiar faces.

Welcome to this module. I will post any message on this blog and unlike IVLE, you can also leave your feedback. I hope this will make the module more interactive - in lecture and in the virtual space.

LSM4213 Welcome

Welcome to the module.

Instead of using IVLE to post message, I will do it here. Unlike IVLE, you can also comment on my post. Making this more interactive and hoping your feedback can make the class less "boring".
