Overview of Learning Activities

This course is more based on a supervision model than a class model, because it is expected that you will have specific needs that won’ t be well met in a group situation. Several class sessions will be held, in which a lecture / technical tutorial model will be followed. At this advanced stage in your project and your student life, it is expected that you will negotiate any specific needs prior to the tutorial sessions.

Overview of Learning Resources

Students will use their individual and course blogs, and the course wiki, which will exist throughout your Masters degree.

Teaching blog:

 An account on the student file server and web server is provided.
