Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In the context of the establishment of the welfare state in the Nordic countries in the 1960s, which was to implement comprehensive democracy, equality and justice, there were largely recognized school reforms aimed at preparing the inhabitants for the welfare state. Under the heading of 'comprehensive school', a school model was designed that was not only to prepare for democracy, but to be democratic itself, and many state-supported research institutions at the universities were designed to scientifically accompany and implement this plan.
The aim of the seminar is to understand the idea and implementation of this Nordic education model and to understand why it has come under severe pressure in the age of 'globalization' (or what is considered to be it).
Please note: We will be in active contact with several authors during the seminar, whose texts we will read and discuss. So we can ask questions to them and also discuss with them!

Assessment and permitted materials

Mid-semester: mandatory, well-prepared reflective paper (abt. 2 pages) concerning the knowledge and questions from the class so far. This will account for 20% of the points that can be earned in the course (max. 4 points).
End-of-Semester: there will be a test with 4 open questions. In each of the questions you can score 4 points, so the maximum number is 16.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Total points: 20; minimum 11 points needed to pass the course.
18-20 = 1
16-17 = 2
