  • You might reduce the contents to fit your lecture!
  • 60 mins lecture is expected (preferabel with one "black board" example).
  • 15 mins discussion and question-and-answer session (5 questions per person per semester - with „logbook“ ).
  • Provide a PDF of your slides before your lecture.
  • Provide a three page handout per lecture (at the beginning of the lecture; this will be a pdf in this semester).
