50% Face-to-face, 50% Distance learning
Course materials are provided during the course.
During the study unit, students will orientate to planning their own studies, employment and improving career management skills. Students will recognize the learning methods that are best suited for them.
The following topics are discussed in the study unit:
- Using Canvas
- Familiarisation with the curriculum and the degree structure
- Own learning styles
- Planning of studies
- Central guidelines at Laurea
The purpose of the guidance during the study unit is to support students in finding different options for their study path and professional development, not to give complete solutions.
Discussions on the study plan are conducted either in person or in goal-oriented small groups. During the study unit, the tutor teachers will also give guidance on practices related to studying.
NB! In case of corona restrictions, the course takes place online, using Canvas and other digital solutions.
