Project activities - The basic operating principle:

  • Each subject area will be initiated by intensive program week. In this, 6 students from all institutions are participating on the design of the study material an its production.
  • As the course is finished, the course will be run for the first time during the project. This will involve larger audience from all institutions and include virtual exchange/online collaboration between institutions.
  • Based on the experiences and student feedback, the course can be further developed during the project. This finalizes the ”production version” of each course.
