Learning methods and activities

The course is offered online with a duration of approximately 13 weeks, and consists of lectures, each within a given topic. The respective topics will be treated through lectures and relevant readings and exercises. Students will maintain contact with the teacher, and communicate with the instructor and peers through a forum and open course blog. Digital tools will be applied in regard to oral presentations and online meetings.

Compulsory Assignments

Obligatory coursework will vary in terms of scope, form, content, and purpose. Furthermore, the focus will be on written and oral work, including the production of short responses. Additionally, some of the work will be collaborative. Academic text production and source usage are important elements to consider when communicating subject knowledge; hence, the course will also include the submission of two longer texts. The activities will be evaluated as approved/not approved and will not be part of the final assessment. However, all obligatory course work must be approved in order for the student to be eligible for the exam.
