7. International opportunities and contexts
International opportunities and contexts, reflection seminar in February 2016
From now on there will be new groups, where the division is based on the choice of track. Look up your new group number in Rapp (under Group number, spring). The new numbers are between 21 and 38. You can find out who is the mentor of your group on the Mentors and groups page in the menu to the left.
If you don't find your new group number in Rapp, contact email@example.com
Preparations for the reflection
- The ability of working in international contexts is mentioned in the intended learning outcomes of the Master's program, both in the national qualitative targets and the Master program's objectives. Review the intended learning outcomes to find what is actually being said.
- KTH recruits students from many countries. Study these maps which show some statistics on where the students are coming from.
The written reflection
Write a reflection document where you address the following points based on your preparations and your experience and expectations. The document should be 500-600 words.
- Reflect on how working with students from different countries may or may not contribute to the goal.
- Studying abroad is another way of getting international experience. Reflect on the advantages and disadvantages.
- What are your thoughts about working abroad for a limited time, or permanently?
- Which courses have you taken/do you plan to take in your track? Why?
Hand in the reflection, read the group members' reflections and comment on them
Your written reflection must be handed in before February 11, 2016, at 13.00. Maybe you should once again look at the short video showing how to upload the document to Google Drive. You should start the document by stating your name followed by prosamm15 or prosamm14 (depending on whether you study the first or second year of the master's program). The link to the document should be put in a file with your name in the directory
where X is your new group's number (check in Rapp!).
You have to comment on at least six other group members' reflection documents using the Google Drive comment functionality (Comment in the Insert menu) before February 15, at 13.00. You may choose which six group members you like, as long as there are at least two from year 1 (prosamm15) and two from year 2 (prosamm14) among them. You also have to comment on a comment in your own document (if there is any).
