Description of the teaching methods
The interactive teaching methods we apply, including in-class discussions, workshops, poster sessions, debates and walk-and-talks as well as guest presentations will yield the greatest benefit if you are prepared and ready for discussing the topics in the course material. Consequently, you are expected not only to read the material, but are also asked to reflect on its contents. In addition to your individual preparation you are asked to discuss and reflect upon some topics in groups. These group discussions will give you an opportunity to compare ideas and develop your thoughts of the topics discussed in class.
