Journal Club

The Journal Club is an opportunity for all professionals:

  • To learn about up-to-date information in their areas by literature searching, critical appraisal and posing questions.
  • To improve presentation skills and receive feedback within an informal forum.
  • Journal Club, managed by UBT RCC and College Coordinators, is a Problem-solving learning group in which a presenter delivers a structured interactive presentation. The content of the presentation is the critical review of a research paper.
  • The Journal Club meets frequently during the academic year at noon, and is open to all interested faculty members and students.

 

The club includes the following seminars:

  • Two-dimensional materials and their potential applications
  • Spectroscopy and imaging through Plasmon-mediated interactions between Nanostructures and molecular systems
  • Small is the next big thing: Introduction to Nano-vision 2030
  • What can 4D electron microscopy and laser spectroscopy provide for Nanotechnology, optoelectronic, solar cells and photo catalysis communities

Both students and faculty members participate in leading discussions of the papers. Furthermore, it brings to campus prominent external speakers to ensure their research expertise is conveyed to UBT faculty.
 

Scientific Cafés

 


Scientific Café, managed by RCC and RCC college Coordinators, is a monthly event that takes place in a casual setting –e.g., in coffee houses, a local library, or a faculty lounge – after work to meet a prominent scientist in a special scientific field and hear him provide an informal (no PowerPoint) introduction to an interesting current scientific topic, that presents the theme of the month. Scientific Cafés are also open to students.

Objectives:

  • Increasing awareness and best practices.
  • Meeting new people, chatting , and asking questions and getting answers.
  • Providing insight and guidance on a specific scientific topic.
  • Introducing concepts of evidence-based practice.
  • Providing a forum for faculty and students from different departments to network; learn from each other; and discuss scientific information.
