Remember, this is a graduate level seminar [if the topic is new to you, please do a search (Google is good) before or after the seminar to help you organize your thoughts]. Each seminar summary should be ~1-2 paragraphs (approximately 3-4 pages) A copy of the report (Word Document) should be sent to Dr. Judith Kjelstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org, Prof. Karen McDonald at email@example.com and Prof. Ray Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be an active participant in the course. Ask questions of the speaker. Talk to the speaker and introduce yourself. Join the speaker for lunch afterwards - be sure to inform Jacki Balderama (email@example.com) beforehand, so we can make appropriate reservations at the Silo Pub). For DEB students, this is a good way to network and arrange internships.
