Students will be required to develop a portfolio of their work during the course of the semester for evaluation. Attendance is required. Two excused absences will be allowed without penalty.

Evaluation criteria include active participation, engagement in field observations and the personal portfolio. Regular attendance, active portfolio development, mis-term and final evaluation of work.

This course is open to all University of Innsbruck students.
