    Conclusion of the project - At this point, all the students have already presented their projects, so they fill in a form to evaluate their own work and their group/colaborative work.
Notes:
Os trabalhos de grupo decorrerão em simultâneo, o que justifica a diferença entre o "learning time" e o "designed learning time". O trabalho colaborativo está implicito nestes trabalhos, pelo que os "outcomes" privilegiados foram outros.
