Lectures that focus on reading and discussing issues central to topics of society and technology in a global perspective are combined with sessions run by teaching assistants, in which students are actively engaged in exercises relating to themes.
Preparations include finding, presenting and giving mutual feedback on empirical material. The first half of the course includes an individually prepared half-term synopsis and a group-based oral presentation of central concepts from the course. Students will also be assigned to give group based feedback on the presentations. These activities are mandatory requirements for taking the exam.
In the second half of the course, students plan and carry out a study of a relevant topic covered by the syllabus. This project work is conducted individually and involves making a research plan that includes sketching a research question, finding and analyzing relevant materials and writing a final report.
Final Exam, individual essay of 5,000 words.
