Student Assessment
The working groups select and prepare during the entire semester a study of their choice (in Spatial Planning, Development and / or Environmental nature). The teams work with the teacher, and correct stages of their study during the entire semester. At the end of the semester, completing the 13 weekly lessons, and during the examinations, the teams deliver electronic files of their study (including the technical report and the electronic presentation) and interviewed on general topics Geoinformatics and related topics to their study, an open audience.
Student Assessment methods
  • Oral Exams (Summative)
  • Performance / Staging (Summative)
