The module organizer will be available to support future development of the project and offer further advice on an informal basis across the semester.

Planning meetings:
Students meet on a weekly basis to plan how to advance the project, to assign tasks, and report on progress.
Notes: Students are responsible for coordinating and attending and taking minutes from meetings to facilitate the planning and organization for the colloquium. They will meet on a weekly basis from weeks 1 to 10, and submit Progress Reports in weeks 3 and 6 for feedback from the module organizer.
