Innehåll

Education is a scientific discipline where knowledge is created about the processes through which the human being is formed and about the changes in social, cultural and historical circumstances in which these processes are embedded. The pedagogical field deals with, for example, different aspects of upbringing, education, learning, teaching and other processes. Questions, for example, can be raised regarding how and why certain values, knowledge and skills arise, how and why they are maintained, and how they vary within and between generations, groups and individuals.

The course addresses leadership and leadership development as processes directed towards organisational development, professional development, group development, personal development and identity formation and how to manage and support such processes. Leadership development is analyzed and discussed from different perspectives using the different logics of the most prominent leadership theories. A specific focus is directed towards the Human Resources´ role when building leadership capacity in organisations. Leadership development is also investigated from a diversity perspective. English as a business language in many modern organizations is emphasized and discussed in the course.

The teaching is organised through lectures, literature seminars and group-based case work. The seminars are compulsory. The teaching activities, including course specific information and communication with students, will partly be carried out with support from information and communication technology (ICT. The course is given in English.

Examination

The expected learning outcomes are examined though both written and oral examination assignments performed in English. The examination is both continual (literature seminars and case work) and final (written exam). The course is graded using three grades: Pass with distinction, Pass and Fail. The seminars and casework is graded using the grades Pass and Fail. The final written home exam is graded using the three grades. All compulsory assignments must have received the grade pass in order to get the course grade Pass. In order to have the course grade Pass with distinction all assignments must have received the grade pass and the final home exam must have been graded with Pass with distinction.

The course work is examined at an ordinary examination and a scheduled re-sit examination in close connection to the course. A third examination opportunity is offered within a year from the ordinary examination. Participation in the third re-sit examination requires a notification to the study counselor. Students who receive the grade Fail at the third examination are requested to assign to the examinations the next time the course is given. Reexaminations based on the same curriculum are guaranteed within two years after the first course registration. A student has the right to change examiner for a course based on a written request to the head of department after two failures in the same course or part of a course.
