Teaching and working methods
Teaching is given in the form of internet based classes, seminars and exercises. It is necessary that the students can communicate orally and visually via computer. In addition to the instruction given, it is necessary to carry out individual studies.
Examination consists of continuous internet based assessment throughout the course, as well as of internet based oral and written exam at the end of the course. Detailed information about examination is found in the study guide.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course twice are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus.
The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
