Course content

The goal of this course is twofold: First, students will acquire knowledge about the development of a personal portfolio used for self promotion. Second, the class, as a group, will get experience organising and promoting an exhibition.

The presentation of the students' portfolios must be done physically as well as in digital form and should be suited to help the students to convey their knowledge and skills when they go out applying for jobs.
