Teaching Methodologies (including evaluation)
We are going to use project-based learning (PBL), implying that the student has to engage on a project from the beginning, a project that has been chosen by them, and work on in in a small team to take it to completion by the end of the period. The projects will have to be (largely) automatically checked for correctness, with the teacher acting as product manager coordinating the efforts of the team and reviewing where needed.
The project will have to be managed with state of the art tools for software development, such as git and GitHub and their accompanying tools. The emphasis will be not so much on a bombardment of concepts, but on interiorizing a process to develop quality ML tools and deploy them continuously to where they’re needed (either in an industrial or an academic environment).
It will be continuous, student-centered evaluation. Although eventually the student will be required to produce a ML “artifact” (that includes the ML pipeline as well as an updatable system), the main evaluation will be how the student reaches the objectives that the rest of the team have created and how it responds to them.
Demonstration of the coherence between the teaching methodologies and the learning outcomes
The methodology is based in a project, and the different learning outcomes are linked to this project. The different objectives are presented by the teacher in turn, and they will represent different milestones in the advancement of the project.
