The course is provided via distance learning and is web-based. Studies require experience with computers, internet access and a headset and webcam. The course has its educational foundation in the LTU educational concept. This way of working is characterised by each student being inspired to engage, as well as undertake independent and active learning that challenges their abilities. The student will actively seek and solve problems through an investigative and critically reflective approach. The course is coordinated with students in the Master’s programme in Occupational therapy with an advanced subject specialisation. Learning in the course occurs through literature studies, lectures, seminars, oral and written presentations, as well as their own advanced study project.


The course learning outcomes will be examined on an ongoing basis and achieving a Pass grade in the course requires that the student has achieved all of the learning outcomes for the course.  
The learning outcomes will be examined both verbally and in writing through assignment submissions, seminars and presentations.

Grading criteria for Pass and Pass (with distinction) are specified in the study guide.


The course may be provided in English.
