Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course treats the experiment's importance within natural sciences, technology and teaching, and how informal teaching environments can be used as a resource to communicate science and technology to schools and the public.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

  • describe for different informal learning environments, describe their possibilities, limitations and fields of use in the education sector.
  •  reflect on experiments and their importance in their teaching
  • develop an experiment to use in their teaching based on theories that have been treated in the course.
  • carry out and evaluate experiments with a student group.
  • develop a visit to an informal learning environment based on theories that have been treated in the course.
  • carry out and evaluate a visit to an informal learning environment with a student group.
  • plan and carry out a study at a Science centre/museum.
  • describe, analyse and reflect on one's own project work both orally and in writing with connection with relevant literature

Course Disposition

One's own experiments and visits will be planned and be prepared in collaboration with the school, to then be developed, carried out and evaluated after student visit. The student will also plan and carry out an investigative project at a Science centre/museum. The course includes about 9 credits of Placement that are examined in the examination parts PROA, PROB and PROC
