Course abstract

The course deals with the compilation, dissemination and presentation of research results in order to popularize research results and make them available to the public. Within the course, doctoral students work on the presentation of research results in scientific articles and prepare presentations of research results for demonstration at conferences. Visual representation techniques relevant to the field of landscape architecture and planning are covered.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

1. Knowledge of research results compilation, publication and presentation methods.
2. Skills to present and disseminate research results according to the specifics of the research.
3. Competences to form a discussion with the audience.

Acquired knowledge, skills and competencies are evaluated according to the quality of prepared publications and presentation of results at conferences.
