The course is based on individual and tutored research and articulated around a forum called Open Circle. Open Circle is a forum where the student's individual projects are challenged. It is organized at least twice every term. This setting opens up for a discussion around the challenges the individual students face, and offers an opportunity to bring questions to the forum.
