The idea of the course is to discuss and ponder together what governance is and how it relates to water management - and your own experience and interests.
In order to facilitate such discussion, an important part of the course will be preparatory Reading Circles done in groups. In this way, the course makes use of both flipped learning and peer learning.
Reading Circles are always related to a certain Contact Session and must take place before the contact session; your group must agree the exact time and place. For more information on Reading Circles, see information page below.
Contact Sessions are held on Tuesdays, starting at 9.15 at Lecture Hall 286 at Tietotie 1E (except for first time on Jan 3rd when we start at 10.00 sharp). The Contact Sessions focus on specific weekly theme described in this page: see below.
The group work during this course thus consists of two parallel processes: weekly Reading Circles as well as preparation of your specific Case Study Session (SDGs/Mekong/Finland-WFD/Talvivaara) and crosscutting politics session (10.2): see figure below.
As an Individual Assignment, all students are required write a Personal Reflection after each Contact Session. For more information, see below.
