Subject: Announcement: 'hyperfinecourse'
Starting on February 8, an on-line course about the physics of hyperfine interactions and the concepts of experimental methods based upon those will be organized at Ghent University, Belgium. As a kind of social experiment, this course will be open for on-line participation by anybody with an interest in the topic.
If you know people who might be interested to attend "hyperfinecourse" on-line, kindly forward them this message.
"hyperfinecourse" is taught at a level that is accessible to students with a bachelor in physics, chemistry or engineering. The language is English.
The course was meant originally for students at Ghent University, Belgium. Since two years, the content is offered through a set of weekly videos (screencasts), which the students watch on-line prior to coming to class. As a side-effect, the content becomes accessible to people not studying in Ghent as well.
If you take this course, it means you should spend 40 to 90 minutes each week to watch the videos, and another 1 to 2 hours to make the tasks that come with the videos. A report on the tasks has to be submitted every week, one day before the weekly class session. During the class session, problems that arose while making the tasks will be discussed. These class sessions happen in Ghent, but live-stream access will be provided for remote students (screen + audio). As a new feature for this year, all students will have the possibility to discus asynchronously with each other within the slides that are used in the videos.
The weekly class sessions are on Wednesdays, at 9h00 UTC. This is convenient for Europe, Africa and Asia, less so for North- and South-America. If there would be considerable interest from the latter continents, we will examine whether it is feasible to store the live session recording for 24 hours. In any case, you get 80% of the experience even without attending the live sessions.
Background information on this project can be found in this video (https://youtu.be/Zbrip6ioC_Y), recorded at the HFI-NQI conference in Canberra (2014).
The course will start on February 8, and will run during 12 weeks until May 13 (with a two-week break from March 28 until April 8).
A few weeks after the end of "hyperfinecourse", there will be the HYPERFINE 2016 conference in Leuven (Belgium) (http://www.hyperfine2016.be). For participants of the course who will be at the conference, a meeting will be organized just before or during the conference. This will be an opportunity to meet your class mates in real life, and to discuss any remaining hyperfine questions.
If you are interested to join, either as a participant or as an observer, or if you want to keep being informed later, fill out your information here: http://goo.gl/forms/Nx075YUj49 . This one-time message is sent to the mailing list used for the conference series on hyperfine interactions and their applications. No further emails on this course will be sent to this list. If you want to receive further information on hyperfinecourse, please fill out the form mentioned above.
