EVALUATION

COURSE CREDIT AND ECTS

Each participant is expected to keep a free-form learning diary covering the entire process from preparing for the course beforehand through the end of the course on 15th December. This EDEN course is deliberately timed to encourage active participation at the following conference, and you should actively take advantage of this opportunity to develop and test your understanding of the issues raised as they play out in the presentations and discussions you will take part in during the conference. Your learning diary should include a section specifically relating to this experience also. The final section of the learning diary should address you developing understanding of the assigned readings in the weeks following the course. A condensed version of the learning diary (about 1,000 words) is expected to be sent to Nina Payen by 17th January 2015. The learning diary should be divided into four sections: Learning Before the course, Main learning points during the course, Learning during the conference, and After the course.

Passing the course is subject to preparing thoroughly for the course, attending all sessions in an active participation mode, active participation with both your fellow attendees and other conference participants during the conference, and delivering the learning diary on time. The assigned credit for this will be 4 ECTS.
