Frågor kring registrering och antagning


The course have an obligatory course introduction on Campus, but is primarily based this semester on online activities that means lectures, group work, and seminars. Course introduction and the final examination seminar in the end of the course will be on Campus. Mainly the lectures are performed live on campus or on zoom with the possibility to discuss the lecture and ask questions. Some lectures are pre-recorded in advance and you find them on Canvas. Lectures introduce literature and provide a basis for discussions.

Group tasks
A major part of this course involves working in groups. Course participants are preliminary divided into several study groups before the start of the course, course introduction at Tuesday January 24th.
Important! You register manually at the Canvas course sight (the University's internal pages) a week before the course introduction, choose a theme and then register. See more information about choosing theme in the document in module “Information”. Each study group are directed to a “theme” group (for example, a client group or people in a particular professional area) which they then follow throughout the course. For example, it could be a group that you work with already in your profession and/or want to know more about.
Please note: This require participation. The work with "themes" in study groups will start in connection with the course introduction 24th of January. During the lecture on Friday the 27th each group will present their group work as well as how you will work together during the semester. Because of that make sure you have time to meet with your group before Friday the 27th .
Each study group prepare and work with different assignments during the semester, most of them will also link to the selected theme/study group.

Since seminars/webinars etc. have different focus, specific instructions are given for each assignment. As a rule, a text should be posted on Canvas in Assignments some time before the seminar. All details are found in the Study guide. Please note that, if not stated on the specific task, the group tasks become available to all students who attend the course, not just to your own group and should be read by all students. The study guide with details will be posted soon on Canvas.

Absence at seminars/webinars: If missing a seminar, absence may be compensated with another seminar. Observe that a missing group assignment cannot be replaced with an individual task. The examiner decides whether an assignment could be replaced with a different assignment. A maximum of one seminar may be replaced with a written assignment.

The group assignments are examined with the grades pass/fail

The course ends with an individual take home task. Grades A, B, C, D, E, Fx, F

Course evaluation takes place in connection with the final seminar, as well as via a web survey.
