- Type of instruction
The teaching in the Web Development Programme is a dynamic, interactive process, where the main emphasis is on student participation. The teaching is based on relevant business practice, and links theory and practice. Issues are included from the different types of companies in the IT sector. The student takes responsibility for his or her own learning, and the teachers constructively contribute to the learning process.
To ensure the optimal academic learning and personal development for each individual student, the Web Development Programme uses varied pedagogy with the main emphasis on dialogue, discussion and projects.
The teaching is organised so that it is varied, among other things, through class teaching, guest lectures, company visits, project work in groups and individual work – often using interdisciplinary issues and always with an application-orientated basis. The different learning formats will, in addition to the academic content, also develop the student's ability to work both independently and in collaboration with others.
In general for all of these activities, the course of study always tries to set clear objectives for the learning activities.
