Overall description learning objectives

The described learning objectives for knowledge, skills and competences will be supported by the specific forms of instruction and work methods as described below. At the same time the forms of instruction and work methods are organised in accordance with the form of examination as described under Examination requirements, which is considered to be the most appropriate frame for testing the student´s fulfilment  of the learning objectives of the subject.

  • Ethical IT issues and theoretical concepts

Content

The course provides students with an overview and understanding of the theoretical and methodological aspects of the field of value-based design, including privacy-enhancing design. The course also focuses on ethical IT issues related to topics such as big data and privacy, privacy as a business driver and human-robot interaction.

Forms of instruction and work

Teaching in the course may take place in the following forms:

E.g. lectures, class teaching, study groups, exercises, writing assignments, independent studies.

Teaching is organised in such a way as to support the humanities model for active learning and activating teaching, cf. section Didactic, pedagogical basis and contact to research environment in the curriculum. The teacher must inform students about how study activities are organised on commencement of teaching. 

The teaching of the course activates the student in the following teaching spaces/learning spaces:

  • Teaching space where the university teacher has the responsibility for planning and is present
  • Study space where the university teacher has the responsibility for planning but is not present
  • Study space where the students have the responsibility for planning, and the university teacher is not present

Workload

10 ECTS is equivalent to 280 working hours. The working hours are distributed between the activities described in the humanities model and listed under Forms of instruction and work as well as the exam including the preparation of this. The university teacher will provide an indicative distribution of the workload at the beginning of the course.
