I’m a professor at a technical university in Germany. Among other things, I teach students how to perform research. The main class, actually a lab course, is called “Nailing your Thesis”. You can browse the current course outline or read more about the Winter Semester 2010 instance on my group’s pages. Here, I’d be interested to hear whether this is of broader interest. Let me know by commenting. Does your university adequately teach you how to perform scientific work? How to improve it?
