Assessment and permitted materials
Participants will work on a chosen topic independently in small groups of 2-3 persons by building a model to adress a specific research question. You are required to hand in model code and documentation, write a brief report, and give an oral presentation on your results.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
Basic knowledge of R is of advantage - we recommend to have taken at least one introductory R course beforehand. Programming skills would be helpful, but are not required (a ‘crash course’ on basic programming technique will be included in the course). You need to attend at least 80% of the lectures and practical exercises. The grade will be based on active participation during the course (20%) and the group modelling project (80%).
Oral presentation of the group modelling project, model code, documentation and brief report. Active participation throughout the course.
