The following table contains the instructions for the voluntary learning portfolio. Every student is encouraged to keep detailed track of the lectures and to produce their own material to better understand the topics of the lectures. If partcipiants of the course submit their learning portfolio before the exam dates (see below), those will be published in this page, along to previous year's portfolios. Bear in mind not all the portfolios have accurate information, although we try to remove those with faulty or missleading information. Once identified, it is discussed with the students, hence the importance of submitting the portfolio before the exam dates. Exceptionally good portfolios (i.e. entailing a good account of the course topics, developing the theory with examples and application) will be granted a benefit in the grade (see below conditions).
Instructions: voluntary learning diary (individually). It is a document that should contain (1) a short description of each topic of the course, (2) description of possible examples and applications outside those explained in the lectures (3) your perspective, links, references, ideas and intrerest related to the topic and issues where you would need further training
Evaluation: Exceptionally good portfolios delivered before the final exam will result on +1 point in the final grade (not on retake). All learning diaries will be published in this wiki, to be accessible to other students in order to prepare the final exam.
Workload recommended: included in the 60h of self studying
Motivation: to better digest all the concepts along the lectures on theory
Please, upload your learning portfolio here following the example. Portfolios not listed in this page, posted after the deadline, presenting plagiarism or not fulfilling what it is expected will not be considered.
If there is any problem with the submission, it should be communicated before the deadline.
