Work methods include lectures, group work, practical and didactic assignments with presentations, portfolio, theme- and project work, problem-based learning, the use of computer programs and excursions. Parts of the instruction are compulsory. Information regarding this requirement will be given at the start of the semester. The work is based on the National Curriculum for the study programme in educational theory and practice ("Rammeplan for praktisk-pedagogisk utdanning", Utdannings- og forskningsdepartementet, 2003)
The students will have six weeks of field work during autumn and six weeks during spring. In spring the teachers will give the students necessary guidance and supervision during the practice periods. Additionally, the students will have practice in organising and implementing the subject, also at other times than the ordinary field work periods, by having practical exercises at the University.
The examination will be a project, e.g. a student enterprise, development work or a theoretical assignment, which preferably are carried out in groups and presented to the other students.
The project will be graded and must be assessed as pass before it can be presented to the examiner. In connection with the presentation, the students will individually be examined in the curriculum. Results from the presentation and the oral examination may adjust the grade given to the project, one level up or down, for the individual student.
