The work space of the study unit in Optima contains a collection of tips for supplementary material. You will be granted access to this work space at the beginning of the study unit.
During the study unit, you will make a career plan either as an employee or an entrepreneur and polish your job search skills as well as analyse your own networks. The study unit is based on guidance, and includes a discussion on the personal study plan with the tutor teacher in both semesters. The purpose of the guidance is to make you think about different options, not to give complete solutions. As a student receiving guidance you are responsible for your own decisions and the direction of your career. The discussions on the study plan are conducted either in person or in goal-oriented small groups. During the study unit, the tutor teacher will also give guidance on practices related to studying.
Optima will be used for communication during the study unit so it is important to make sure that you give permission for all messages from the system. In order for the guidance, advise and communication in the study unit to work smoothly, please use the conversation area in Optima for all questions and matters that do not require personal communication with the lecturer. In personal matters, you can contact the lecturer by email or phone or arrange to meet him or her.
