Intended learning outcomes

On completetion of the course, the student will be able to show rudimentary knowledge of both artistic interpretation and aesthetic expression in education. 

Course content

The students will get possibilities to work with different aesthetic expressions and artistic methods, such as drama, fine arts and music that can be used especially in pre-  and elementary schools.

The students will work in group and plan, rehearse, perform and then evaluate some kind of performance where different aesthetic expressions are combined.

Each student will by photos and words document his/her and the group´s work with aesthetic expressions and artistic methods.

Teaching and working methods

As the course is based on active participation and laborative work by the students, high attendance at the classes are important. Between the classes, the students are expected to read the course literature and to prepare various tasks.

Examination

The course is examined through active participation in compulsory classes and through a performance where different aesthetic expressions are combined and also through an individually written portfolio that also includes documentation with photos.

Applies to all courses regardless of grading scale.

  • Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

If the course has a three-graded grading scale (U - VG), following applies:

  • Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.

The following applies to courses that include a compulsory component:

  • If special circumstances prevail, and if it is possible with consideration of the nature of the compulsory component, the examiner may decide to replace the compulsory component with another equivalent component.

If the LiU coordinator for students with disabilities has granted a student the right to an adapted examination for a written examination in an examination hall, the student has the right to it.

If the coordinator has recommended for the student an adapted examination or alternative form of examination, the examiner may grant this if the examiner assesses that it is possible, based on consideration of the course objectives.  

An examiner may also decide that an adapted examination or alternative form of examination if the examiner assessed that special circumstances prevail, and the examiner assesses that it is possible while maintaining the objectives of the course.

The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus. The course is carried out in such a way that both men´s and women´s experience and knowledge is made visible and developed.
