Syllabus
  • At the start of the term, we jointly make a program consisting of lectures freely available on the web. The program is formed as follows: (i) The teacher provides the students with links to a repository of recorded talks. (ii) The students select those which they find relevant for themselves. (iii) If there are more suggestions than slots, the students vote on which talk they want to watch. Once the talks are selected, we watch them and discuss them. Everyone watches the talk on their own, and we meet in person only for the discussion.
