Course content, structure and pedagogical approach

The course presents key concepts and foundations of one of the following fields: (1) tourism and hospitality, (2) arts and culture, and (3) service innovation. Each field represents the study focus for one of the three specializations in the SEM program. The course provides a succinct yet comprehensive introduction to each specialization and field of study, by giving a general overview of service industries and their development. The course discusses the importance of services in the context of each field of study (see 1, 2, 3 above).

Description of the teaching methods
The course includes lectures, guest speakers and interactive class sessions. Forms of continuous assessment and feedback are essential parts of the course, either via student presentations, peer-to-peer feedback sessions or on-site visits outside the classroom to follow up and discuss organizations or project or theory specific challenges.
Feedback during the teaching period
Feedback (both lecture and peer-to-peer feedback will be given in class after student presentations throughout the course. Furthermore, students can get oral feedback on their learning progress in the Office hours. Feedback is given partly based on evaluation criteria similar to those you are assessed by in the final exam-presentation. It is the student´s responsibility to book time for this type of feedback with your teacher.
