2021‑12‑08  Feedback on ETP introductions Academic English available

For almost all submitted ETP introductions, feedback by our Academic English experts (Shelley and Brittany) has been sent via Lisam today. Due to high workload, late submissions could not be reviewed, and any duplicate submissions in Lisam have not been considered.
The grades are only informative and map to colors of the Grading Rubric (1=red, 2=orange, 3=yellow, 4=green). There is no (need for) resubmission for Academic English - the next step will be UPG1 submission in January.
Please read the feedback and, if anything should still be unclear, prepare specific questions. In the comments in Lisam you can see who reviewed your paper, Shelley or Brittany. In the final lecture on Friday 10/12 15:15, there will be an opportunity for you to ask questions to Shelley and Brittany.

2021‑11‑24  Feedback on ETP introductions available

Our apologies for the bad sound quality during part of the first 40 minutes; fortunately we succeeded in fixing it during the lecture break. If you have any questions to Shelley regarding the first half of the lecture, please contact her directly by email.

After evaluation of all submitted thesis topic outlines, we have defined 24 topic groups (A1, A2, ..., F4), which together form the seminar groups A,...,F in TimeEdit.
You can find your group's topic area (numbering 1-6 as defined in the list of topics) and your seminar group in the file seminargroups_2021_by_first_LiU_ID.pdf in the LISAM collaborative workspace (requires LIU login).
You can find the other teams in your seminar group in the file seminargroups_2021_by_seminar_group.pdf. The topic outlines on Lisam are linked from the PDF file.
We will now enter you accordingly in webreg in the next days.
In the LISAM cooperative area we have set up a folder structure for Seminar1/group, with group in {A1,A2,...,F4}, where you can put your preparation document(s) for the Seminar 1, deadline on Wednesday 10 nov 2021.

The course web pages will be updated for the coming instance of TDDD89 HT2/2021 about a week before course start.
