Programme - 2010 Summer School
The Summer School is designed to last for 6 days and consists of about 30 contact hours and further several hours of scheduled reading and consultation time. The content of the School is a mixture of lectures, student presentations, consultation and reading sessions.
The activities open with a Welcome and Introduction session, in which the Summer School topics are introduced. A general open discussion, where all the lecturers are invited to briefly present their topics, can be organised to facilitate the students to become soon more familiar with the lecturers’ topics.
Each lecturer is expected to give a 3 hours lecture, split into 2 x 1.5 hour sessions. Each student is also expected to make a presentation of about 45 minutes, which include also the time for questions and discussion. The students' paper must be completed and sent to the Summer School Secretariat by the 1st of June, 2010. Also, in order to get prepared to the School, students will receive in advance all the available teaching material and the papers presented by the other participants.
In the consultation sessions students can privately consult with lecturers. It is up to the students to ask directly to a lecturer for a private meeting. Also group consultations can be organised. This private or group meetings during the consultation time can be held inside the class room, which remains open until the end of the consultation session, or in any other available space of the VIU Campus such as in the cafeteria, in the beautiful garden surrounding the campus or in the campus' common areas. It is up to the students and lecturers to make the consultation as much formal or informal as they prefer. Also working groups can be organised during the consultation time. We strongly encourage all the students to take most advantage of the consultation time from the very beginning of the School.
In order to reduce the burden on students and lecturers, a free afternoon in the middle of the week can be also scheduled.
