We will meet virtually through Microsoft Teams 3 times during the two weeks course (Monday 22nd of February, and Monday 1st and Friday 5th of March 2021). Each live session will be around 90 minutes long and they will be mandatory. 

  • 22nd February 2021, 10.00-11.00 (Kick off meeting) Teachers will present and explain to the students how the course is organised and will respond to any questions students may have.
  • 1st and 5th March 2021, 11.00-13.00 : Students will have the opportunity to ask any questions and seek clarification about anything within the lectures and the practical section. 

An MS Teams group will be created the day the course starts. We will use it for the live sessions and as a discussion forum, where students and teachers can exchange information and questions related to the course.
