For the theoretical part, the teaching consists of a small number of lectures and seminars. Other than that, the teaching mostly consists of supervision of project groups and essay teams.
The theoretical part is examined through seminar presentations, possibly in combination with written reflections.
The practical part for project groups is examined through a written report, a demonstration and an oral presentation of the project. For essay teams, the course is examined through a written report and a seminar at which the work is presented and opposed upon.
