Academic Onboarding

The KDDIT programme is an academic, research based programme and as such, you will be expected to read research papers and undertake critical literary analysis, do independent research and write academic reports based on theory and methods both in Danish and in English.

As we know that many students struggle with one or more aspects of this, we have set up a few things to help you out.

Academic conduct on KDDIT workshop

Teachers on the KDDIT programme will host a workshop for all students in the first week of November around academic conduct.

The workshop will be an integrated part of the 1st semester courses Users in Context and Advanced Design Processes and all students are therefore expected to attend.

 

Users in context
