Course contents

Everything will be done it Itslearning and even
though this is totally online I still have contact
with you students on a very regular basis.

The way you students experience the whole course
content makes you also reflect on many aspects
within your own personal leadership, since you in
this course work independently on the assignments
within certain time frames. This means that you
have no mandatory lecture hours for the modules at
all (except the optional course introduction on
the 16th of May at 10:00) and you get acquainted
with the given material self-imposed and finalize
the assignments according to the given time-table.

the 5-week long course is divided into 5 modules
(one module=one week) with versatile content.
Each week is different when it comes to topics and
course activities. In the beginning of each module
(every Monday at 12.00) you will get new course
content (in form of e.g. reading material or video
clips) and assignments according to the topics
introduced to you during that module. You have the
possibility to choose the for you suitable time-
table for studying and completing the tasks for
that module, as long as you do it within the dead-
lines given.
