Programme and modules

Programme modules

The programme is organised as a series of modules, each of which can be taken separately or in conjunction with others to meet individual requirements. Modules are classified according to level of difficulty, 100, 200, and 300 level, etc. There are three kinds of modules: classroom, online, and by assignment. The primary teaching method is the classroom module. Online modules and independent study assignments are complementary elements in the overall blend. In 2015 Independent study modules are only available for students currently enrolled in Jyväskylä University MA program.

Classroom modules are given face-to-face in a traditional teaching situation. Each classroom module fits into a half-day teaching session; some additional work is required outside this time-frame. Each module comes with a resource pack containing reading material, self-test questions and a bibliography. Many also involved practical exercises in the museum’s workshops and studios.

Independent study modules are intended for research projects, written papers, etc., which are evaluated by a recognised CIDOC trainer.

The primary teaching method is the classroom module. Online modules and independent study assignments are complementary elements in the overall blend.

Certification

Students receive credits and a certificate of participation (ICOM/CIDOC) for successful completion of modules. On completing the core programme (14 modules), participants will receive a course certificate from ICOM/CIDOC.

To complete the core programme, students can either attend more than one Summer School session, or undertake complementary online and assignment modules.

 

Teaching staff

The 2015 Summer School will be taught by a team drawn from CIDOC and specialists from Finnish archives, museums and universities.

 

Prerequisites and responsibilities

Modules are classified according to level of difficulty, 100, 200, and 300 level, etc. There are no prerequisites for introductory courses.

Students do not have to be members of CIDOC.

Course expectations include: class preparation - reading all materials in advance; attendance and participation in discussions and in-class assignments, accurate, timely completion and submission of course assignments; and adherence to accepted standards in written assignments.

Students will have the opportunity to provide evaluation of both the tuition and the support material at the end of each module, helping us to improve the Summer School from year to year.
