International Seminars in Life Sciences – Guest Lecturers wanted for the Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, 2017/2018!
You will find attached the planning of sessions for both the autumn and the spring semester, together with a programme description, a draft Thursday work programme, and an overview of the sessions hosted in the present academic year 2016/2017.
Your seminar (topic to be choosen by you) will be scheduled for a Thursday afternoon, starting at 16:30. Your audience will be quite international, mainly European students with at least three years of University education in one of the various Life Sciences domains (Agriculture, Biotechnology, Food Tech, Forestry, Environmental Sciences, etc.).
The average number of students in the class is around 50-60. The maximum duration of the seminar is three hours, however the average session takes about 2 hours.
The approach should be rather general, as very deep research or specific approaches might be too difficult for some of the students. We will introduce you to the students at the beginning of the Seminar and then leave you as the only lecturer in the classroom.
Accompanying teaching and non-teaching activities may be scheduled around the Thursday Seminar as for completion of your work programme.
Participants from EU countries are expected to obtain STA mobility grants from their home Institutions to cover their travel, accommodation and living expenses. If you are interested, please check the website and contact DI Lisa Kargl
Help in finding accommodation and a courtesy lunch will be provided by the Seminars' organisation.
