  • This is a course with advanced level students and a global context. We will therefore be utilizing a variety of methods for communicating with each other in order to support the educational goals of the course, which will be presented in the readings and lectures. A number of discussion forums, recorded lectures, external links and various media will be utilized, and since many of these are not mandatory, the value of these activities will depend on your interest and participation. 
  • These activities are however geared directly to the learning goals of the course and to the focus of the three written examinations, discussion forums and presentation seminars. There may also be "drop-in" (live chats) times, when I will be available to answer questions regarding the course. We are extremely interested in creating an ongoing dialogue regarding the distance learning strategies that work best for you.
