Detailed schedules for the work phase are planned per project.
Assessment and gradingProject is done in a group preferably 3 of students (also other group sizes can be accepted). The group completes a common project work aimed at learning a particular topic and whose results are documented in a set of technical/scientific reports. In addition, each member of a group prepares a personal learning portfolio about his or her work and studying.
