Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Seminar course that comprises about 80 full-time study hours. For each seminar session, one to two hours are allotted for presentation and subsequent group discussion. The remaining study time is allocated for preparations. Prior to each session, one of the participants is assigned the role of chairperson. The chairperson is responsible for preparing a literature assignment on protein engineering to be presented at the seminar session. Well in advance of the seminar, the literature should be distributed to the other participants for reading and preparation of discussion points. During each session, one participant is appointed secretary with responsibility for summarizing in writing the key messages from the presentation and the subsequent discussion. The course is the second of four courses in a seminar series.

Intended learning outcomes *

After completion of the course the student should have the knowledge and ability to

  • demonstrate both broad and specialized knowledge in the overall subject area of biotechnology with emphasis on protein engineering
  • demonstrate the ability to present pedagogically, critically examine and discuss the scientific work of others in the subject of biotechnology, with an emphasis on research in protein engineering
  • demonstrate the ability to acquire knowledge of academic authorship and the international scientific publishing landscape with relevance to the scientific focus area of the course
  • demonstrate the ability to identify, discuss and reflect on ethics and sustainability aspects in the research that is discussed within the framework of the scientific focus area of the course
