Teaching and working methods
Lectures followed by discussions take place in the online classroom, and during online-seminars, -workshops and/or other learning activities. In between online learning activities students study the course literature independently and communicate with each other online. The theoretical work is combined with practical exercises in teaching, in course design and in ways to negotiate the integration of new course modules in teaching programmes. Language of instruction: English.
The course is examined through active participation in online-seminars, -workshops and/or other learning activities, and through continuously written individual assignment, that will be submitted online and through an independent assignment that will be presented in writing and orally in an online seminar.
Detailed information about the examination can be found in the programme’s Key document.
If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it. If the coordinator has instead recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.
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.
