Fiat Lux Freshman Seminars: Evolutionary Medicine: How Natural Selection Helps Us Understand Why We Get Sick
Winter 2020 - This class is heavily presentation-driven. It met five times this quarter, with the first being an introductory presentation by Professor Nonacs. The other four were reserved for group presentations of about 3-4 people each that went for about 25-30 minutes. Prior to each presentation, Professor Nonacs would give a presentation on background material to lay the foundation for the group. The workload wasn't too bad, but was more than the other fiat lux that I've taken. The fact that my group members did their parts was very helpful, but group presentations can always be a roll of the dice. Professor Nonacs was very accommodating in terms of when we wished to present and on what subject, which was nice, and his presentations were always very engaging. As the other review for this quarter said, all of us passed.
