The course addresses current research in cognitive science, with focus on embodied, situated and distributed cognition in a series of literature seminars. The aim of the course is for students to be able to account for the relevance of these perspectives in various sub disciplines within cognitive science, such as philosophy, psychology, neuro science, linguistics and artificial intelligence, and to discuss the implications this research has on the design and development of interactive technologies.

Teaching and working methods
The course consists of seminars. In addition, the student should conduct self-study.
The course is examined through active participation in seminars and oral presentations. Detailed information can be found in the study guide.
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.
GradesThree-grade scale, U, G, VG
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.
