10 Pedagogic approach Problembased learning
And the students create the problems them selfs ! We give them a number of tools to work with. A.o. Collaborameter Belbin profile Team rules and collaboration contract (subjects to consider) Island presentation day Meeting an external expert Student-to-student teaching

11 Supervision by both technical and Business/collaboration supervisor
Deliverables: A portfolio A coherent report on collaboration/business and technicals

12 Collaborameter Aim: to have the students evaluate their collaboration during the semester 1. Goal (aims and direction for the team work) 2. Results 3. Management (team coordination and management of the teamwork) 4. Collaboration (social aspects) 5. Learning Culture (the team's ability to evaluate themselves)

13 Collaboration contract
Aim: to have the students set up common goals and rules for the collaboration Collaboration contract When drafting a collaboration contract within your team consider as a minimum the following questions: 1. Who should be included in the collaboration contract 2. Set up a number of team rules 3. Team coordinator/contact person 4. Agree on a work plan 5. How often will you reconsider the work plan and milestones 6. How do you make sure that the learning environment you create suit all team members 7. What if a team member do not perform according to our agreements

14 Student-to-student teaching activities.
Aim: to have the students exercise knowledge transfer In each Team it is required that each subgroup of students from the same study program conduct a teaching session, within their area of expertise, for the rest of the Team. The session should be documented as follows: a small report (1-2 pages) with the following items are prepared and signed by the audience part of the Team: Topic of the session. Evaluation of the session, both relevance of the topic in relation to the Business idea and planning and implementation of the session. The material used in the session is enclosed. Each teaching session should bring the rest of your Team up-to-level on a subject where you are expert. The topic of the session should be relevant to the business idea your Team is working on.

What is the market potential – do they know their customers and competitors ? Is it realistic that they can reach those customers ? Is their business model reasonable ? Team/organization. Do they have the competencies it takes to implement the business plan Budget/financing. Is there correlation between the business plan – work plan – budget ? Work plan. Does the work plan seem realistic ? Are there a number of well defined milestones ? Where do you see the three main barriers for this project becoming a success ?
