課程概述

Most graduate schools teach students how to survey the scientific literature, identify meaningful scientific questions, and devise experiments to solve the problems. However, few graduate schools offer formal instruction to help students developing a good sense of historical perspectives and essential on-job skills, which are critical elements for becoming a good scientist. Successful formulation of critical concepts often results in significant advancement and major paradigm shift in science. Learning how these specific ideas evolved in a historical context can be quite educational and therefore beneficial to students aspiring to develop a career in sciences. 

課程目標
Students will be asked to read short stories and/or papers, watch documentary films, if available, of pivotal individuals interviewed by distinguished fellow scientists in the field, present the learned lessons, and participate in lively discussions led by the instructor and/or invited scientists. It is hoped that, through these exercises, students can extract from these pioneering scientists a few long-lasting lessons, which in turn shall provide a deeper understanding as to how an individual scientist, functioning in the global scientific community, accomplishes the watershed breakthrough. The other half of this course will include a series of well cropped lectures aiming to guide students on acquiring essential skills to become a functional scientist. These include, but not limited to, skills regarding how to give an effective talk, write a fundable proposal, form a vibrant research team, and become a successful practicing scientist. A major effort in this half will focus on sharpening the proposal-writing skills, which is arguably one of the weakest points for students in Taiwan.
