Summary

This course will allow students to engage in hands-on projects defined by themselves, in a dedicated workshop environment. Students work together in small groups on their own ideas, with access to a wide range of tools, materials, software, etc. - assisted by specialized coaches.

Content

There is no predefined task or assignment ' students brain-storm, form groups, and decide between themselves what they want to do, how to start ' then they do it. A lot of flexibility is provided for how the work should proceed, but the process typically includes: a brain-storming phase; a planning phase with definition of specific roles for each group member; an execution phase with continuous evaluation and adjustment of planning and strategy; and in the end a presentation of the project/results/products/methods developed - and the difficulties encountered.  An interdisciplinary team of coaches - including students and faculty members - will provide guidance for the teams as needed.

Keywords
