Course content

The course includes the analysis of different cooperative settings as well as the study of methods, concepts, formalisms and tools for modelling, analyzing, designing, implementating and evaluating systems supporting cooperation. Focus will be on ubiquitous and mobile technology. A compulsory theory essay counts in the final grade.

Learning outcome

The main objective of the course is to train PhD students in the area of cooperation technology. Students are expected to gain advanced knowledge about the state of the art in cooperation technology, in terms of theories, methods, and technology. At the end of the course students are expected to be able to apply the gained knowledge in the analysis of cooperative settings and in the design of new technology. They also will develop competencies needed to participate and set up research in the area.

Learning methods and activities

Seminars, self-study, and own theory essay.

For lectures to be organized, at least 3 students must take the course.

Further on evaluation

The portfolio consists of three individual works. The last work is a theory essay/article that can be relevant for the candidate's PhD project if desired. All three works must be approved to pass the course. In case of voluntary retake, fail, or valid absence the whole portfolio must be retaken during a semester in which the course is taught.
