LT2046 Development Project in Technology Education 7.5 credits

Through a development project, the student can make an in-depth study of a section of the technology education field. The course demands initiative and an ability to work independently. The project may be carried out partly during a school placement and/ or in collaboration with the student's placement school. The intention is that the student shall gain an ability to develop education in a structured way, on their own and in collaboration with others.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Through a technology education development work, the student is given the opportunity to apply his didactic knowledge to develop the teaching in some part of basis or the technology subjects of the upper-secondary school. The work can treat for example (but not necessarily limited to) teaching planning, choice of study material, accessibility, skills development and continuing professional development and formative and summative assessment. The theme may preferably connect to the student's previous research domain and/or the activities at the placement school. The work starts before and is completed after a placement period. The students thereby have the opportunity to collect data or test ideas during placement.

The course should strengthen the student's possibility to independently and together with others develop the teaching of technology. The work is documented through a written report. In addition to that, planning of classes, artefacts, teaching material etc. can be included. The work is carried out with support from a supervisor.

Intended learning outcomes

1. Based on scientific knowledge, proven experience and current regulations identify possible fields of development in technology teaching

2. Plan a development project in the field of technology teaching, based on science and proven experience
