Easter Holidays and Other Information

2 Abril 2020, 16:26 Maria Teresa de la Peña Stadler

Dear Students,


*****This email may be long. Read it till the end, please*****


The Easter holidays are around the corner.

Take the opportunity to rest a little bit from the intense regime of remote classes.


Meanwhile, I posted on the Forum the question to meditate during the Easter week.

Try to participate. No long texts are needed. What is important is to have something to say on the subject.

A line only can already trigger discussions. We will go through what you posted during the next lecture ---

 that your representative told me should take place on April 29.


Here go two more pieces of information, on the questions that you raised regarding the project:


1) The teaching team continues to find  important that the projects have an original component.

However, given the extraordinary circumstances of the moment affecting specially those who had planned to do experimental work within a Research Unit group, and cannot pursue that as planned,

the maximum classification to be obtained in the project is not any more limited in case of project reviews.


In the cases specified above, you should iterate the focus of the project with the professor whom you contacted, before. You can eventually analyse experimental results already obtained by the group in the past, if they can be provided to you

(it is just an idea).


Remember the advice that I gave you about research

"You need a project at all times.The project can change all the time".



2) The oral presentations of the project have the duration of 10  minutes, counted from the beginning (after "slide share" works properly) followed by 5 minutes of discussion.  Não há motivo para preocupações :).  


I wish you a Happy Easter.

Teresa Peña
