Evaluation?

Participation and an assignment are required. Course material will be available on Ufora (course A005539A - Low Countries Studies). See the course specifications:

- After each lecture, the students post a short reflection (approx. 300 words) in the appropriate discussion forum on Ufora. The students are encouraged to interact with each other in this way. Students are expected to respond to at least nine of the twelve lectures.

- After the completion of the course, students write an essay (approx. 4000 words). For this essay, students can choose from two options. Or they write a reflection on the entire program: what was interesting, what are the most striking differences with the home country, which subjects were clearly lacking (always thoroughly substantiated); or they write an essay on one topic from the course, comparing thoroughly the situation in Belgium with the situation in their home country. The comparison must be accompanied by a reflection on the differences. The essays are expected at the latest on Tuesday, 31 May, 23.59h and should be handed in via Ufora (A005539A - Low Countries Studies). Under the tab ‘Ufora-tools’ there is an ‘Assignment’ called ‘Essay’.
