Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences): Knowledge:
  The students learn scientific research techniques, such as scientific search engines or digital libraries. The students know the structure of scientific publications in their area of research. The students know about the basic principles of scientific research and the academic practice, such as the critical reflection on information and results, the importance of authorship, the usage and setting of references, and the quality requirements of sources and references.
  The students are able to use scientific search engines to research on a specific topic by applying search techniques. The students can access, on their own, a given scientific seminar topic, and are capable of summarizing it and presenting it in a scientific talk and discussion.
  The students are empowered to access a given scientific topic on their own by applying their knowledge and capabilities. The students can judge and sort scientific publications on a given topic and relate them to each other. The students deepen their competences on written discussion, oral presentation and disputation, as well as the presentation of complex topics.
  Media usage:
  The following media format will be used:
