8Teaching Methods and Recommendations

The course is interactive, lectures combined with the discussion of reading and students’ independent work. Students are required to make report and oral presentation of their home work.

8.1Recommendations for course teacher

It is recommended to use interactive teaching methods which allow for most student participation such as: discussions, case studies, role plays. The course is intended to be based on real-life case studies, multimedia examples and current events.

8.2Recommendations for Students

The course format mixes lectures and group discussion. Students should take notes and participate in the dialogue. The course is an interdisciplinary one, combining different research approaches based on philological science adapted for public policy understanding and public interaction development, therefore students are expected to visit lectures: there is not much relevant reading.
