Course description

The VLAG Online Lecture Series

In this lecture series VLAG scientists share their research endeavours with the whole VLAG community (PhD candidates, postdoctoral researchers and staff).

We invite all VLAG PhD candidates and other Wageningen University researchers to engage in as many lectures as possible, and especially to dive into subjects not closely related to one’s own field of research, to broaden the scientific horizons.

The live online lectures are brought to you via Virtual Classroom, a web-conferencing tool integrated in BrightSpace. All VLAG PhD candidates have access to the BrightSpace and can watch the recorded lectures.

In case PhD candidates opt for credit points for this activity, they will be asked to prepare for the lecture by reading a scientific publication suggested by the lecturer and to send in a number of questions about the topic. After each lecture (duration: 45 - 60 minutes) there will be time for questions and discussion (20 - 30 min).

Workload estimate:

Upon actively attending at least 4 lectures you will earn 0.5 ECTS
Upon actively attending at least 7 lectures you will earn 1 ECTS
Maximum number of ECTS credits to be earned = 1.5 ECTS
