Peer review on draft
Towards the end of your project, you exchange feedback with other course participants; you give and receive response from each other. How you give feedback and discuss need not be documented. In Box there is a document called "Booking List" where you enter your name for a period that suits you.

Project report
Your project is to contribute to the education by carrying out change work rooted in educational literature, which is the purpose of the project and the product that goes into the organization. The project report is written based on the course's criteria and learning objectives, see the start page. What you have done is presented to colleagues in a context that you think is appropriate, for example at Teachers Connect.It can also be a conference or meeting and your task is then to present and discuss your project, preferably with a focus on joint discussion
.

Urkund
At the end of the course, your report should be submitted to Urkund. Since this is used for faculty students, we find it valuable that you yourself experienced how it works.

Here you can see how the process of Urkund works: https://www.urkund.com/the-urkund-system/ 

You can read about it from a student perspective here: https://www.urkund.com/urkund-for-students/

After you read about Urkund you send in your report file to gunilla.amner.lu[at]analys.urkund.se  (replace [at] with @ in the address)

Every teacher at Lund University can have an e-mail address at Urkund. The e-mail address follows the principle of firstname.lastname.lu [at] analys.urkund.se
