Nanoscience (PHY 472/372)

Professor: Slava V. Rotkin

"The course is ideally suited to use advanced technology for education. It is a seminar course. The core requirement is the independent student's work on the original papers, found online. Each student goes through a cycle : student-picking-a-paper > instructor-approval > work-on-material > drafting-presentation > instructor-approval > final-presentation > group-discussion. At the end of the course, we can collectively generate a large volume of up-to-date educational material on the topic of the course. Currently, we only save the presentations. Students' interaction is currently limited to accessing online (intranet) the materials, after the presentation day. "-Rotkin
