Opintojakson tavoitteet

This six credit course focuses on professional communications, virtual team and project work, multicultural co-operation, academic and professional writing, and professional self-development.

The course includes two mandatory online sessions at the beginning of the course and three online group simulations later during the course. The two online sessions will be held in the evenings with the teacher and the whole group present.

After the online sessions, the students will be divided into groups. Each group will do three online group simulations organized according to the students’ own schedule. Furthermore, the students complete twelve written individual assignments related to the different course topics supporting the online group simulations.

The assignments are tailored based on the findings of language needs studies and are based on real working life communication situations. For example, the case company of the negotiation simulations is a local, existing company.
