Course organisation and communication

Course organisation

Du kommer i stor utsträckning att arbeta självständigt i kursen med inläsning av litteraturen och de examinatoriska uppgifterna. Föreläsningar/seminarier ges som stöd för inläsningen.

You will to a high extent work independently. You are supposed to study the literature and do the assignments on your own hand. Lectures and seminars will provide some support for your learning process during the course.


Föreläsningar och seminarier kommer att ges med hjälp av webbkonferensverktyget Zoom. Övrig kommunikation i kursen sker med hjälp av kursplattformen i Canvas.

For lectures and seminars we will use the web conference program Zoom. For other communication we will use the course platform in Canvas.

Please note that it can take up to 60 minutes for the systems to synchronise but after that you will be able to see your course in Canvas.
