Læringsformer og aktiviteter

The students are expected to acquire skills through independent study outside of the organized teaching, through group work and the digital learning platform.

English is the language of teaching and communication. Students are expected to use the language actively in the teaching as well as in written and verbal communication with fellow students and teachers. Furthermore, the students are expected to use the University College’s library actively and prepare for planned teaching.

Through process- and product oriented work with written texts and self-assessment of these, in addition to presentations and active participation in the teaching, the student is ensured coinfluence as well as supervision in the progression of his/her studies.

The English subject comprises many different components which are closely connected. To achieve a complete learning outcome in the subject, the students must have an insight into the components and an understanding of the connections between them. The curriculum presupposes active participation throughout the entire study process.
