Learning outcomes

After finishing the course students are expected to

  • demonstrate ability to critically and on the basis of development theories examine development projects
  •  demonstrate insight of the roles of ICT and knowledge in development collaboration
  • demonstrate insight of the scientific possibilities and challenges  related to practical development projects

Examination

Introduction + case 1, 1,5 credits (P/F)

Case 2 + case 3, 1,5 credits (P/F)

Final assignment, 4,5 credits (A-F)

Grading criteria

The grade is set according to how well you have done the assignment. In the assignment you need to show:

  • How well you have understood the course contents
  • How well you apply knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings
  • How well you apply knowledge and understanding of the conditions and challenges of ICT projects in development contexts
  • Your ability critically and systematically analyse ICT projects in development contexts
  1. Excellent

    Student shows profound understanding of the course contents through insightful and critical application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows profound understanding of the conditions and challenges concerning the application of ICT in development contexts.

    The analysis is critical, systematic and showing insights of evaluative thinking.

    The presentation is clear and correct.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is consequently and correctly applied throughout the text.

  2. Very Good

    Student shows good understanding of the course contents through insightful and critical application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows good understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions.

    The analysis is critical, systematic and showing insights of evaluative thinking.

    The presentation is clear and correct.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is consequently and correctly applied throughout the text.

  3. Good

    Student shows good understanding of the course contents through insightful or critical application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions.

    The analysis is somewhat critical and systematic and showing insights of evaluation.

    The presentation is clear and correct.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is consequently and correctly applied throughout the text.

  4. D 

    Satisfactory

    Student shows good understanding of the course contents through insightful or critical application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows some understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions in small extent.

    The analysis is somewhat critical, systematic and showing insights of evaluation.

    The presentation is correct.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is consequently and correctly applied throughout the text.

  5. Pass

    Student shows some understanding of the course contents through application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows some understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions.

    The analysis is somewhat critical, systematic and showing insights of evaluation.

    The presentation is correct.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is consequently and correctly applied throughout the text.

  6. Fx 

    Fail (supplementary assignment)

    Student shows some understanding of the course contents through application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings.

    Student shows some understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions.

    The analysis fails to be critical, systematic and showing insights of evaluation.

    The presentation has got errors that make it incomprehensible.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is applied throughout the text.

  7. Fail

    Student fails to show understanding of the course contents. Application of the knowledge and understandings of different approaches to development and their theoretical underpinnings is limited and lacks the central notions of theory.

    Student fails to show understanding of the conditions and prerequisites concerning the application of ICT in developing regions.

    The analysis is neither critical nor systematic and fails to show insights of evaluation.

    The presentation has got errors that make it incomprehensible.

    A recognised reference system (for example Harvard) is applied throughout the text but inadequately.
