- Type of instruction
The course is based on Problem-Based Learning. The students are introduced to the Python programming language and the Django web development framework through the development of a simple application as class collaboration. The students must then apply their knowledge in developing a larger application project, where the student must also acquire new knowledge on their own to complete the development. The teacher will act as a supervisor in the development project, so the students are not left on their own.
