AbstractIn this course, students read, present and discuss seminal publications in the area of exercise physiology. The focus lies on critical analysis of scientific content, conceptual as well as ethical aspects of publications. Students are trained in the most common scientific presentation techniques such as oral and poster presentations.
ObjectiveStudents gain further knowledge and a deeper understanding of concepts in exercise physiology. Emphasis is put on critical analysis and discussion of scientific publications as well as on improving scientific presentation skills.
ContentAbout two third of the semester will be spent discussing structure and content of 2-3 scientific papers per double-lecture. This includes a student presenting the paper orally first, followed by the group discussion. Each student will also prepare and present a poster on a self-selected, scientific publication, participate in a poster discussion session and lead another discussion session as a facilitator. Student groups will prepare a scientific study design to a given, applied exercise physiology question. Furthermore, students will compare an article published in the lay press to the scientific publication the article is based on.
LiteratureMaterial will be provided in moodle.
