CLNR 338 - Scientific Literature Seminar


This interactive class introduces students to literature searching and critical analysis techniques. Skills in critical analysis of the scientific literature will be developed in small group discussion of scientific papers chosen by the faculty and students. These skills are applied in the form of written and oral presentations of projects developed by researching the current biomedical and pharmaceutical literature. In addition to learning how to apply these skills with a team, complete comprehension of these skills are applied in the form of two solo oral presentations. For the first presentation, students will prepare a brief presentation on a scientific research paper of their own choosing, and use PowerPoint to make visual aids to supplement their presentation. The second will be a seminar-style presentation on a health-related topic, again using PowerPoint to generate slides as visual aids.
