This is a 4-unit course. The assessment in this course will be based on attendance (15 percent) and a 50-min student presentation in lecture (85 percent).

Presentation Policy

All presentations are individual presentations. Your presentation should be based on a recent paper on learning theory. For ideas on papers, see here . You are welcome to present a paper that is not on the list; however this is subject to instructor approval. There are three major milestones related to your presentation:

  • Oct 3: Sign up for a presentation slot. The currently available slots are under the Schedule tab. Please send me two possible options for when you would like to speak in case your first choice is not available. The slot assignments are first come, first served – so if you want a spot you'd like, email first!

  • Oct 10: Send me the title of the paper that you would like to present.

  • 14 days before your presentation: Send me your draft slides and schedule a meeting with me to discuss them.

Missing each milestone is worth a grade.
