In some situations one need to design some compact courses for undergraduate/graduate students. I would like to know how to do it without any loss of generality, main ideas and any other important parameters of a usual course? Is there any difference between compact course design for graduate and undergraduate students? In fact I am searching for the main parameters which I should bring in my talks and those subjects which I should avoid.
By a compact course I mean the following:
- Very Short: 1 lecture
- Short: 3 lectures
- Medium: 6 lectures
- Long: 12 Lectures
