The course is scheduled on the basis of a weekly changing theme. Some of the weeks are built in a fashion of workshops, during which I would hope to see as much presence by the students as possible, due to the lecturing sessions taking place during lab sessions. This concerns especially weeks 3 and 6 of the course. Naturally also on all other weeks the workload for students with all the assignments is expected to be 100%, but the contact hours are more aligned with what is stated in WebOodi.
I propose for the students to do what they can to be able to spend those workshop weeks mainly at the University to reap the most benefit from the teaching and hands on assignments provided. I wish you see this excessive face time as a benefit to you rather than a nuisance...
Anxiously looking forward to seeing you on Monday!!
