The course is structured around lectures and supervised writing exercises. The students will be organised into groups according to what academic field they are associated with (i. e. natural resource management, renewable energy, public health, etc.). Emphasis will be placed on gaining writing experience, and giving feedback to other groups. Supervision and feedback will be provided throughout the writing process. The writing exercise will take the form of a group work, which will form the basis for evaluation..
The course will concentrate on the writing of a comment to a consultation process related to a municipal plan based on the Planning and Building Act. The exercise will take the form of a group work, and the students will assume the role of an authority of their choice, that has the mandate to offer an objection to the proposed municipal plans. The students are asked to reflect on the level of conflict between different interests affected by the proposed plan, and to judge whether an objection is in order. The idea is that the conflicts being focused on should be related to environmental protection, renewable energy or public health, making it relevant for students from these field. In addition to the task described of writing a formal comment or objection from a relevant authority, students are also expected to write a note expressing their own reflections, based on knowledge gathered about the conflict at hand, and which will form the basis for the formal comment. The writing exercises draw on the course APL240.
Lectures, writing, supervision and group work.
