Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course applies "student centered learning" on real problems from the media technology area.

The work is done in small groups, where the students under guidance of a teacher, acquire and apply new knowledge in a context of problem solving based on method knowledge for project work.

In these groups, a problem is defined, solutions are suggested and are validated by building of prototypes. The results are presented and documented.

Intended learning outcomes *

Students who have completed the course should be able to:

• demonstrate deeper methodological knowledge in the field of media technology and show the ability to use scientific methods to solve real problems.

• demonstrate the ability to critically, independently and creatively identify and formulate issues around complex problems within the media field.

• plan and carry out advanced tasks within given time frames, thereby contribute to the knowledge development and evaluation of the work.

• ask open-ended questions and use network resources and technical skills to develop the answers.

• give and receive feedback on the quality of the work, leading to revisions or further inquiry.

• show ability to oral and written communication, presenting their conclusions and discussing them in different groups, based on the knowledge and arguments that they obtained during the course

• acquire new knowledge through Self-Directed Learning (SDL)
