Content and learning outcomes
The course starts with subject-specific aspects, such as how the subject has developed, different views on knowledge in the subject, the connection of the subject (or the lack of connection) to the textbooks, the view of the teacher on the subject and how the background of the teacher influences this view.
Thereafter, pupils' learning and the teaching process follow (plan, carry out and evaluate) on the basis of current technology education research and regulations related to the different parts of the technology subject. Special focus in that respect is given to pupil activating learning, such as technology development work. Assessment forms and their application in practice is treated.
Finally, applications of interdisciplinary perspectives, such as equality, equal opportunities, sustainable development and ethics are included and how both analogue and digital learning resources can be integrated in practice in the teaching.
Intended learning outcomes

- give an account of and illustrate subject-specific aspects of the teaching process and how these influence different ways to plan, carry out and evaluate teaching in the technology subject, on the basis of the regulations,
- give an account of and illustrate subject-specific aspects of assessment and how different assessment forms concretely can be applied to evaluate pupils' knowledge in the technology subject
- account for how project work, demonstrations and/or equivalent pupil activating education in the technology subject can be planned, be carried out and be evaluated, and analyse their advantages and disadvantages
