FIRST WAVE OF CHANGES ON EVA aka. does it really end here?...
What pleasant changes can we notice at the moment and are there any more waiting for us?
Since the departure of the historically first year of EVA, quite a few changes have taken place. Some changes have already occurred and some are still waiting for us.
A lot of changes can be noticed and accepted during the course of the study, but some may find the changes confusing. That's why I divided the changes and described them in one place. We are currently in the so-called "first wave" of changes. Before long, it will be followed by the so-called "second wave", which will answer all the answered questions and complement the existing changes.
Syllabuses changed over the years, first strengthening and weakening were added, and then the entire form of the syllabus changed. The topics on the left side have been enriched with more detailed descriptions, and the number of assignments necessary for fulfillment on the right side have been replaced by forms of assessment. The syllabus, which now works across the board, is already established. All EVA classes follow it and reap success. This syllabus, in contrast to the previous one, allows the student much greater freedom in the subject and the potential to find "his own thing" in the subject. Additional tables appear below the syllabus, with the procedure for evaluating progress, results and report card results.
The evaluation of the results and the course differ slightly - we have one grade more for the results and one grade less for the course. Many students, professors and parents had doubts between grades S and V, in short, for them this determination was very nebulous and indeterminate, which is why the grade U was created. that he is trying and that he is doing something for his studies, that is why he is evaluated only as fulfilled and not fulfilled. The assessment is one of the changes that will be added in the "second wave".
At first glance, the report card remained the same. However, it includes the same changes as in the evaluation, and the result from the portfolio conference is evaluated separately. However, you will no longer find progress evaluation as a separate line there.
Graduation projects are now more usable in practice. Students start projects already in the third year, for better efficiency, motivation and greater time distribution. After certain periods of time, students will present their procedures, which can also motivate their classmates. Thanks to this, the opponent's first assessment can also be moved so that students do not have the stress of writing mid-term papers at the end of January.
Cross-cutting actions are very individual in their own right. The development team is trying to give students even more freedom in choosing the topic and the members of the group work. This topic will again be supplemented by the "second wave" of changes.
Two cross-cutting events are coming soon!!
All the mentioned changes, which will later be supplemented by a second wave, serve to create EVA 2.0, you have a lot to look forward to!
