This 15 credits course is divided into two parts (7,5 credits each). There will be one compulsory seminar for each part of the course. The course is examined through participation in discussions, written assignments, and oral presentations during the seminars. Details about this will be specified in a Study Guidance that will be available before the course starts. The course is given on full-time basis and requires much self study.
Most of the communication will be done through the learning platform Blackboard. Participation in the seminars could either be done by being present in class or, if you follow the course on distance, through the web-conference tool Zoom.
After your course has finished you will be sent a we-based course evaluation questionnaire via e-mail. Your participation in the course evaluation is very valuable to us and you comments will help improve and develop the course further. All students registered on the course will receive a report of the course evaluation with all comments compiled.
