Team Project

CESA-STEPAcad. year: 2019/2020

In the course of the semester, students in groups carry out a project on a selected topic under the guidance of a teacher or a doctoral student from one of the institutes involved in teaching the subject. The content of the project is an independent activity from the assignment, the study of the theory, the creation of the structure of the plan and design of the project, methodology of work, own practical activities, processing of results and evaluation of results and drawing conclusions.
The course includes lectures on individual phases of project creation and implementation and seminars with the group leader on the project work. The project is finished with a defense, which is part of the evaluation.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The graduate will be able to: prepare, organize and implement monitoring, process data to evaluate.
Learning outcomes of the course unit The subject prepares the student for practical activities connected with project preparation, organization, preparation of the schedule, provision of material and technical base.
Students will be able to create a logical schedule of project activities focused on monitoring physical activities.
Students will acquire practical knowledge and skills in the various phases of project preparation and management.
Students will be able to choose appropriate instrumentation to meet the project objective and will be able to work with the research method for data collection, processing and evaluation.
The output of the course is to defend the project, in which the group must:
- demonstrate systematic, regular activity during the semester
- explain the purpose of the project, create a research question, describe the project objective
- describe the methodology of work, explain its issues, partial tasks, schedule,
