Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.This course rests on a variety of teaching methods:
- Home readings and individual assignments
- On-site lectures and testimonies
- On-site case study sessions
- Group assignment, including fieldwork
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation will take the form of:
- a written team project (30%) and a mid-term oral presentation (10%) thereof based on the topics learned during the course, that will evaluat students' ability to identify social and environmental needs and come up with innovative solutions, and to communicate effectively;
- a written individual assignment that will evaluate students' understandings of key concepts and their ability to apply them to a real case (30 %);
- the continuous evaluation of students during in-course interactions, quizz participation and the redaction of reflexive journals about students' practices and learning (30 %).
- If the evaluation part (1) is failed (group assignments), a revised version of the group project (on the same topic or a new one) is to be submitted and presented in August. The weights of this part for the final grade remain similar as for the first sit, i.e. respectively 30% (paper) and 10% (presentation) of the final grade.
- If the student’s average for the evaluation parts (2) and (3) is below 10/20: A new written individual assignment taking the form of the exploration and analysis of a real case study, based on the concepts learned during the course and making use of the articles that were part of the readings. The grade obtained for this new assignment will replace the average grade obtained for the evaluation parts (2) and (3) and will thus count for 60% of the final grade.
