The aim of this first
half-session course is to provide a combination of research experience and
group work via research-focused group activities involving experiment
planning, teamwork and the collection, sharing and interpretation of data. The group, in consultation with the supervisors,
will develop a project plan where the overall aim and the objectives of the individual
students are established. The development of a variety of transferrable skills is an important feature of this module,
including working in a team, project planning, the presentation of results,
report writing and verbal communication.
