Dear semester-project participants,

This year’s overall theme will be “AUTO

We have made a list of initial sub-themes:

- Autocreation
- Arbitrary
- Authentic
- Autogenous
- Automatic
- Autoregulation
- Autospection
- Autonomous
- Autogenesis
- Autologous
- Autopia
- Auto

What’s next:

1) You can send us suggestions for additional themes until June 24th by email to mediatechnology [AT] leiden edu. We will evaluate the suggestions and publish a final list of sub-themes on June 26th.

2) Afterwards each of you must send an e-mail message to mediatechnology [AT] leiden edu, at latest on June 28th 2017, that contains the following information:
- e-mail subject: “Semester project theme preferences”
- your name,
- the three themes that you prefer to work on, ordered from strongest preference (1) to third-most preference (3),
- optionally the name of one student that you do not prefer not to be teamed-up with.

Here is a simple example to help you:

Tomediatechnology#leiden#edu
SubjectSemester Project theme preferences
  
My name is
: .....
My preferred themes are:
    (
1) .....,
    (
2) .....,
    (
3) ......
I would rather not be teamed-up with: ...... 

3) We will treat all e-mails confidentially.

4) We will make teams of 3 (or 2) students and assign them a theme. Naturally we will attempt where possible to respect your preferences, but you should understand that full compliance is combinatorically not possible. If we did not receive the above e-mail from you before the deadline, we will decide for you.

5) In this forum-thread we will announce the teams and themes. This may take some time (like 10 days), since it is difficult to match preferences.

6) Coaches will be assigned to the groups in September.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to read the Semester Project Manual!

Enjoy the summer and take the time to start exploring your theme!

Below follow the groups of the Semester Project.

The first Plennary Session for the Semester Project is September 18th at 10h. (please note that afterwards we will continue with the evaluation of the second semester)

Each of the groups is expected to give a compact presentation on their theme explorations. The plennary sessions are primarily meant to update, and get feedback from, each other. Furthermore it’s a moment to ask questions.

Now is the moment to refresh yourself and read the Semester Project Manual once again, dedicate your time to the Semester Project and start meeting each other.

You will hear about the assignment of the Semester Project coaches in the coming days.

We are very much looking forward to see you at the first Plenary Session!

From the Semester Project manual:

Each group is assigned a coach. The role of the coach is to function as an advisor (klankbord in Dutch). Also, the coaches are involved in the evaluation and grading process, so it is important that they understand the decisions and progress made by their group.
It is the responsibility of each group to initiate and maintain contact with their coach throughout the project.

The first plenary session is planned tomorrow (18/9), see you there!
