Course requirements
The course content is defined by the literature references (i), (ii), and (iii) in the course plan. The importance of each moment of the course is defined by the respective emphasis given by the lectures, exercises, and assignment tasks.
Course evaluation
The randomly selected course representatives are presented in PingPong.

Being a student representative means that you are responsible for evaluating the course together with the examiner/course responsible and the program board of the program that gives the course. The evaluation process consists of three parts:
  1. The student representatives and the teacher are expected to have two informal meetings during the course. The first one should be in the first study week, the second one after approximately half the course. The first meeting is mostly for you to get acquainted, the second one are for the student representatives to give feedback to the teacher on the progress of the course.
  2. After the course an evaluation questionnaire is sent out. The examiner will get a chance to add extra questions to the standard questionnaire.
  3. After the course, there will be an evaluation meeting where the student representatives and the examiner/course responsible for the course have a meeting together with the program board of the program who gives the course, discussing the courses' advantages and potential for improvement. This meeting will be held in study week 3–6 in the study period after the examination. The examiner invites the participants to this meeting.
