November 19, 2003The seminar


The students have two assignments:

  1. Write the Ph.D. status report
  2. Prepare the presentation

Assignment 1: Write a Ph.D. status report

The Ph.D. status report is the basis for your presentation (see assignment 2). We have provided a template for the report. The status report should be 5-12 pages.

The status report provides a base line, a snapshot of our current status. This base line may later be used in tracking our progress. By repeating such seminars once every 6 to 12 months, writing a status report every time, the intention is to provide a tool for us to better monitor and track our own progress.

Assignment 2: Prepare a presentation

Each Ph.D. student has 20 minutes for presenting their work with basis in the 'Description of Ph.D. work' section of the status report (ref the status report template). It is up to each and everyone to decide the focus of their presentation. The seminary provides an opportunity to discuss our work. It might therefore be wise to angle your presentation towards issues with your work that you would like to discuss.
