All learning contents are accessible on the internet via course platform.
The course is composed of four mandatory sprints (each apr. 2 weeks long) that form the course learning tasks (facilitated process writings); and one mandatory reflective follow-up learning task (facilitated process writing). The last task is assessed by the teacher. The rest are peer assessed using an assessment framework provided by the teacher. There is also self-assessment in the end. During the course, you are responsible for your own work only - no group work will affect your grade. You can do the whole course from your couch. - That being said, class participation is very highly recommended based on course feedback from courses held previously in a similar fashion. The time during classes is half teacher led. The other half is spent discussing the course subjects in small groups (3-5 students), again facilitated by a framework provided by the teacher. The small groups vary during classes. In between classes, there is preliminary work to be done in preparation for the small group sessions (also part of the facilitated process writing - so mandatory regardless of participation to classes).
Peer assessment 50% Self-assessment 30% Teacher assessment 20% (with Superpowers to raise/lower 2 grades) Criteria is shown and explained at the beginning of the course (assessment matrix).
