Classes (iCal) - next class is marked with N
We planned to use a hybrid model, where attendance is possible in-person (the room has a capacity of 30 under Corona guidelines), but also remotely via BBB. BBB-Details will be provided in the Moodle of the VU. We plan on having a small set of international guest lectures, which would be purely online as well.However, due to recent developments, we might switch to more purely online. The first lecture will be only online and more details will be discussed there.We aim at recording the lecture material. (Virtual) attendance is mandatory for project presentations, discussions, and preparations, but not for the lectures.We realize that in the current times, sickness etc. might prevent you from attending at certain dates, and we will find individual alternatives in these cases.
Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
- Oral exam at the end of the teaching period (50%)No material is permitted during the oral exam. We aim at performing the exam in-person, depending on how the situation develops. If you are e.g. quarantined or cannot travel to Vienna during the exam period, we will find individual alternatives in these cases.
