Further information for students

During the course, what you have learned will be assessed qualitatively based on learning outcomes using many different methods: feedback from the teacher, the student's own self-assessment and feedback from peers in webinars, small groups and the Moodle learning environment.

You will receive formative and summative assessment (teacher/peer review) according to the sequencing of content and assignments.
