ECTS

5 ECTS

 

Aim

The main idea of the course is not only to make some fancy analysis, but also for students to organize themselves and evaluate which analysis makes sense within the limited time frame, as there will be no further tasks or time after the “hackathon” week. On the other hand, students will experience what is possible within one week of concentrated working effort, especially when organizing themselves well.

 

Content

The course is structured like a hackathon. On the first day some general introduction into the topic (Permafrost) is given and relevant research questions are discussed. Students can organize themselves in teams if desired and each student/team works on an individual topic from here on out. Every day a quick feedback round will be held where each team presents their current status and goal for the day/week, which will be shortly discussed in the group. On the last day the results of each topic will be presented.
