Selections in Practice

This course is part of the programme:
Digital Humanities, interdisciplinary programme

Objectives and competences

The objectives of this module are to give student autonomous choice and stimulate her/him to develop competence of autonomously steering acquisition of complementary competence, such as logically required by his master project or individual academic interest, in interaction with a wider professional context.

Prerequisites

The choice of competency to be accredited under SIP only partly depends on the process of competence negotiation within the Progress Track module, and is free from mentoring decisions or fixed obligations within the student’s Carrier Module selection. The selections are thus left to free student’s choice, as long as argued for within the Progress Track module, and assessed through a consistent report (see below). As such, the selections do not have any prerequisites (if not specified within their own curricular structures, such as e.g. prerequisite courselets in TIP or DIP supportive modules).

Content (Syllabus outline)

The Selections in Practice (SIP) module represents the so called “open part” of the curriculum, offering the students in the first year (4 ECTS per semester) to freely choose any of the smaller units offered under TIP or DIP, or even attend an additional Studio module run of 4 ECTS, or (upon prior agreement with SIP module leader) accredit any of the externally attained level- and area-relevant credits. Thus the programme offers the student to autonomously choose, but also negotiate along the Progress Track, an individual stress within the competency clusters of techniques, discourses and/or production management (as contained in the DIP module), or programme-external provisions.

Similar as in TIP and DIP supportive modules (see note at the bottom of this document), the choices that make up the credit value and the micro-competencies of this module are negotiated with peers and mentors in the Progress Track module, with the important difference that here the student can ultimately choose whichever provision s/he deems (and argues for as) consistent with his personal pathways, selecting either from TIP, DIP or Studio provisions, or from other study programmes, and not least extra-curricularly, gathering non-formal and informal learning experience. The choice is valid as long as the students can argue for the choice (in advance) and later on consistently report and reflect upon the experience. In case of non-formal and informal learning experience, the student needs to provide ample evidence.
