Procedure and course planning
We plan to have a maximum of 7 sessions, and one introductory session. In each session, one student will present the two articles as mentioned in the course outline as can be found below. Each student presents the two papers that are discussed in a session in an integrated way. So each student presents at least once. Each student also prepares an individual review report for each session. The goal is to write a review of the two papers that are discussed in the section. As one student presents his or her review, and all other students have prepared the review as well, we can discuss the papers during the lecture. Presentations last appr. 20 minutes.

Grading: 14% each review, 7 reviews = 100%
