This minor and the minor International Project 1 are considered as a whole lasting in total one semester. This minor is executed in combination with the minor ‘Living Labs’.
This minor is a deepening of the minor International Project 1 (IP1). The project work is continued on a higher level of ambition and development. Therefore this minor can only be followed if the student has successfully completed minor IP1.
The assessment is done on the basis of the following deliverables of the personal assignments:
1) Technical and/or managerial reports and/or products (hardware, software). These are graded with mark C1.
2) Documents concerning project based cooperation, e.g. agendas & minutes of meetings, reviews, issue reports, policy documents (vision, mission & strategy). These are graded with mark C2.
3) Reports, documents on reflection on the technical and project based cooperation processes, e.g. given and received feedback, psychology test & reports, process evaluations. These are graded with mark C3.
Minimum requirements for adequate performance The above mentioned deliverables are graded in an assessment as indicated above.
1) Technical reports in readable English , meeting the requirements of methodology and knowledge that the own education imposes on an internship report or otherwise a generally accepted way of reasoning in problem analysis , quantitative research including conclusion and recommendations or otherwise reflection from a preselected professional perspective on one or more processes within the project. Partial grade is expressed as a number C1 between 0 and 10.
2) The same rules apply for project based cooperation. Partial grade is expressed as a number C2 between 0 and 10.
3) Idem for personal development. Partial grade is expressed as a number C3 between 0 and 10.
Participation of all workshops on Cultural Differences / English Course, personal development (Strengthsfinder), project management & system engineering is mandatory. A ‘pass’ is given if and only if all workshops have been attended and homework completed. Otherwise ‘fail’.
The overall graded is expressed in the final grade is a weighted averaging of the above figures: Final grade C = (1/3) x C1 + (1/3) x C2 + (1/3) x C3. In order to be awarded this grade, the workshops must have been graded with ‘pass’.
The final grade is transformed to the standards of the own education.
In case of minor omissions a second chance is given in terms of a complement of the assignment. If a student shows severe malpractice and/or misbehaviour he/she is removed from the course and a second chance is given in another project if available and suitable.
