Tentative Speaker List for Spring 2017

Raw scores for final quiz


To receive credit for the course you needed to get at least half of the question on the final quiz correct. There will be 25-30 questions on the quiz. The quiz is based on questions each speaker answers during their talk. It will be multiple choice and you must bring a standard (scantron) answer form with you to record your answers on. The quiz is closed book/closed notes

Video Capture

Videos of each talk will be available on the course Canvas site, via Panopto. Please be warned that while we will do everything in our power to ensure high quality videos are available for each seminar, the nature of the shared lecture hall means that sometimes microphones do not work or are just missing. In those cases, audio may not be available. Some speakers may also reserve their right to not have the lecture filmed. Students will be notified in advance in that case.
