Inhoud vak

This course has the single main aim to teach students the first steps
of writing a research proposal. Students are asked to evaluate a number
of existing proposals that were submitted by staff members in recent
years. In addition, each student will also have to write his or her own
proposal, which is then evaluated by fellow students following a
procedure very similar to what happens in real life. This class may
only be attended by PDCS students.

existing proposals and one to discuss the students proposals.
