Project Plan Presentations
Number of students
- Project planning
- Time management (estimation of time and efforts needed to accomplish the tasks, creation of Gantt chart)
- Team management (planning of the work and preparation of the presentation in team, estimation/learning of others knowledge and skills, defining interfaces between team members)
- Presentation skills (preparation and presentation of the result, speaking in front of audience etc.)
- The presentation is clear and complete according to the requested criteria
- Students and teachers know how the students want to achieve their goals and which tools and activities will be necessary.
Laptop, projector and projector screen, presenter device, Wi-fi, TR; Online video-conference session is also possible; Apps for creating a presentation
The student is not able to be on site and can join over a TR to listen to the presentation of the other groups and to present as part of a group. Also, if any to take part in discussions.
Due to the fact, that sometimes the problem definition is coming from companies, an expert from those companies could take part using a TR and take part in the discussion after the presentations.
For the lesson only:
- During the lesson: Student presentations
- Concerning the preparation before the lesson: Collaborative Learning, Groupwork and Flipped Classroom.
- For the whole practical course:
Case-Based Learning, Collaborative Learning, Constructivist Approach, Experiential Learning, Fieldwork, Flipped Classroom, Groupwork, Inquiry-Based Learning, Learning by doing, Peer-to-Peer Learning, Problem-based Learning, Project-Based Learning, Student presentations
Before the Lesson:
- Task assignment to the groups and definition of the project goals;
- Give instructions on the content and outline of the presentation
