The courses contain topics such as: Locating oneself in Global Learning, Adult learning: contexts and perspectives, Work and learning, Fostering learning in practice, Global/local learning and Understanding Research.
All course activities will be done within an online learning plat form, and you will write a master thesis (15 credits) in which you apply your theoretical and methodological knowledge in the Adult learning area. Examples areas are professional development, work based learning and teaching the adult.
The characteristic feature of the programme is a dialectic between students' personal experience and the conceptual resources of the programme.
