This 1-credit seminar is designed to promote the professional
development of ICS graduate students [Casanova].
ICS graduate students improve their professional development by:
- giving presentations on their own work, to
- practice doing presentations (verbal communication skills)
- encourage the performance of meaningful work that can be presented
(research or project work)
- get to know each other (networking)
- give the student feedback on their work (improvement of skills)
- the instructor giving presentations, to provide
information that may be useful for career and graduate studies
Reading material may include:
- Cresswell's Research Methods (Spring 2006)
- Dee's Building a Successful Career in Scientific Research (Fall
- Levin's Relating Statistics and Experimental Design : An
Introduction (Spring 2007)
- Haugh's Scientific Method in Practice (Fall 2007 and Spring
- visiting speakers and UH faculty
giving presentations throughout the semester
To pass this course, students must give a presentation of their
own work, and attend at least 10 of the sessions, with the following
- Ph.D. students who are ABD (have completed their proposal)
only need to attend 5 of the sessions.
- M.S. students need to give the presentation once during their
time as an M.S. student, and not necessarily in the semester in which
they register for ICS 690.
If you have any questions, please contact the instructor.
