Seminar Outline

Each student will give one presentation (30 minutes) in the seminar plus 5-10 minutes of "activation". In addition to her or his talk, each student will have to prepare a short paper (approx. 8 pages). The paper as well as the talk will determine the final grade. Furthermore, you will give each other feedback to the talk by a feedback form.
