Learning methods and activities
Course seminars start in the autumn semester and continues through both autumn and spring semester. In addition, the student train in and practice facilitation in between the seminars, either as a learning assistant or on another appropriate arena. An important part of the learning process is the situations that arise in the students facilitation practice. The student develops an understanding for teams, themselves and facilitation skills through reflection on these situations throughout the course, and together with the other students at the seminars. In addition, the student will practice giving and receiving feedback, and then reflect about these situations, in order to gain awareness about their role as a team member. Take a look at blackboard for detailed information about compulsory assignments. In order to get IØ3000 approved instead of EiT in a master's degree, the student has to be an EiT-learning assistant (practical requirement). This means the student must be an EiT-learning assistant twice: once before taking RAD3700 (required previous knowledge) and once while attending IØ3000 (practical requirement). NB: If the course is used in a bachelor's degree it cannot be part of a master's degree.
