This could off course include books for last semester/previous years. Make sure the books are at home with you for the Course Assembly and email Daniel if you need to order.
    3. Fill out one form per book and discuss: you can find the form with questions to fill in and discuss here: Form CCA 2
    4. Discuss and rank the books: make a list individually that puts the books in the order from most important for learning/need to be part of the course to less important and then discuss and make joint list together for your course.
    5. Online meet with Educational Coordinator and discuss.
    6. Bring the forms, the joint list and at least one online copy of the book to the Course Assembly: at the session we will discuss the books, their purpose/function in the courses and more in smaller groups, trying to build a visual overview of books at CEMUS autumn 2020 and try to figure out why we select certain books/topics/methods.

 

Framework for course books: The number of books should not vary because of the level of the course. Instead, the content, discussion, arguments, academic level should correspond with the level of the course – for example, a master level course includes books that are appropriate for that level.

  • For a 5 credit MSD-course at CEMUS: 1-2 books and Digital Compendium Online (Digital Compendium Online: An online compendium with 3-4 texts, videos, audio files and/or other learning material per week available at www.cemus.uu.se/COURSEPAGE)

Purpose: to process and discuss course books that fits with and enables learning in the different courses; to better understand why certain books with certain topics and perspectives are selected, and why some are not selected; to get an overview of the number of books and the actual course books the coming semester to enable the same amount of reading per similar courses and avoid using the same or too similar books on CEMUS courses.
