This implementation is based on contact learning meaning that weekly classes provide the basis for learning the course topics by covering the relevant material. Also, some of the learning activities can only be completed in-class such as some in-class activities and exams. In addition to the classes, the participants are expected to do independent work outside classes. Instruction is provided during classes, using Moodle and if necessary, via e-mail. The classes cannot be attended online and they will not be recorded.
Material will be available on Moodle.
