7 7 Planning activities and study time in and out of the classroom (6 ECTS – 150 h) Activities (~problem solving all the time) Exercises (EX1.. EX4) Application project Individual test (IT1.. IT4) Individual test (IT1.. IT4) ePortfolio Weekly study plan Problem solving teamwork session at classroom (2 h) Problem solving teamwork session at classroom / laboratory (1 h)* Student-conducted teamwork sessions (>6h) Extra individual work Guided learning 11.5 h per week 6 ECTS Problem solving teamwork session at laboratory (2 h) Self-directed learning 13 weeks * Guided academic activities

8 8 Exercises and calendar on the CSD web

9 9 The CSD Blog

10 10 Activities Design of real world applications Design using PLD/VHDL Design using microcontrollers

11 11 The content on the CSD web ( units ) is focused on problem solving

12 12 Course timetable AP: project IM: improvementA : assessmentEX : exercise/problem eP: e-portfolioIT: Individual unannounced test

13 13 Cooperative Learning as the instructional method Positive interdependence Team members are obliged to rely on one another to achieve their common goal Individual accountability All students in a group are held accountable for doing their share of the work and for mastery of all of the content to be learned Face-to-face promotive interaction Group members providing one another with feedback, challenging one anothers conclusions and reasoning, and teaching and encouraging one another Appropriate use of collaborative skills Students are encouraged and helped to develop and practice skills in communication, leadership, decision-making, conflict management, and other aspects of effective teamwork Regular self-assessment of group functioning Team members periodically assess what they are doing well as a team and what they need to work on for functioning more effectively in the future

14 14 A typical 2-hour group work session Questions from previous sessions or exercises Introduction of new concepts or materials (generally, the problem to be designed) Group work for revising concepts and planning exercises Questions, discussion and general orientations Group work for developing exercises Conclusions and planning for the student- directed sessions outside the classroom Up to 15 minutes 30 minutes Up to 15 minutes 30 minutes 15 minutes

15 15 A semi structured group e-portfolio organised to show your learning process and results Cooperative group ePortfolio and instructors feedback

16 16 An excellent way for showing evidence of what youve learnt An ePortfolio organised according the subjects cross-curricular skills to show your achievements (http://electronicportfolios.com/balance) Showcase ePortfolio Table of contents 1. Course, purpose, audience and structure 2. A list of hardware/software tools and laboratory equipment and examples on the way youve been using them 3. Work samples and reflection for the cross-curricular skills 1. 3rd language (English) 1. An active reading of a paper or a book unit 2. A written assignment in English 3. Exam solution 2. Team work 1. Learning an electronic design automation (EDA) tool in group 2. An example of a group assignment 3. Oral and written communication 1. A concept prepared to learn the design flow for a digital circuit 2. A peer-reviewed written assignment 3. An oral presentation in class 4. Self-directed learning/project management 1. Example of a project organisation and development 2. Example of a unit or lesson studied autonomously. General reflection and conclusions

17 17 Assessment is not a mechanism for verifying student knowledge, but an stimulus to guarantee that (motivated) students will do the group tasks which lead them to learn the content and skills Student assessment Every piece of work counts for the final grade Final exams are no longer needed Assessment is another learning activity integrated in the course dynamics ePortfolio

18 18 Assessment scheme Exercises + Individual test + Application Project + e-Portfolio + Participation and attitude 6 deliverables with optional improvement 4 individual unannounced exams Includes an oral presentation and a written report n Rubrics and examples from previous terms, facilitates assessing and giving fast feedback Examples to demonstrate content learning, cross- curricular skills development and reflection Continuous assessment: youll always know where you are and what you have to do to improve Ep1: Week 9, 5% Ep2: Week 14, 10% Oral: 12.5% Written doc: 7.5%

19 19 Assessment scheme Exercises (30%) Individual Test (25%) EX1A, EX1B, EX1C IT1 A remark on the Exercises assessment: There is a link between the IT and the EX: EX2 IT2 EX3 IT3 EX4 IT4 The EX will have a preliminary group grade. In order to get its final grade, students have to pass the corresponding IT. If a given student fail its IT, its EX will be graded with a 4. The EX will have a preliminary group grade. In order to get its final grade, students have to pass the corresponding IT. If a given student fail its IT, its EX will be graded with a 4. At week 9 there will be another opportunity to pass or improve IT1 and IT2. IT3 and 4 can be assessed again at week 14. At week 9 there will be another opportunity to pass or improve IT1 and IT2. IT3 and 4 can be assessed again at week 14.

20 20 Course evaluation and processing Learning objectives and cross-curricular skills Activities and study time scheduling Active methodologies Continuous formative and summative assessment Course evaluation Coherence and consistency Student questionnaires, and instructors processing This quality cycle has to be repeated every term The evaluations aim is to prepare a plan with specific actions to improve teaching in upcoming courses (problems redesigning, timetable scheduling, workload, teaching materials, new software, demonstration exercises, etc.) CSD WEB page
