All students should have read the thesis before the seminar so it may not necessary to give all details at the presentation.
- The opponent gives feedback for 15 minutes. The opposition report must be handed in to the examiner, the presenter's examiner and own examiner not later than the day before the seminar. Also, out of courtesy, take one printed copy of the opposition report to the seminar and give it to the presenter. Template for the opposition report can be fetched from Canvas.
- Active listeners shall ask at least one question each. The students that act as active listeners should have looked at the thesis before the seminar. Do not forget that you should be active listners on at least two other seminars, beside the own presentation seminar and opposition seminar (i.e., four in total).
- Make sure that you get your assessment template signed! It is the examiner of the presenter that is signing the documents. If the assessment template is not filled in at the seminar, you will lose the seminar.
