New 9th Semester Initiative: Introducing “Creative Learning Lab”

New 9th Semester Initiative: Introducing “Creative Learning Lab”

GRS’ Vibeke Andersson has created a new 9th semester initiative alongside Helene Balslev Clausen from Tourism Studies for students from Global Refugee Studies and Tourism: Creative Learning Lab.

The Mobility semester (9th semester) is a combination of academic courses and course exam (8 weeks) and working to produce a ’product’ to an external partner, which you choose yourselves (8 weeks). We have a new initiative ‘Creative Learning Lab’ included in the course period.

Instead of writing a ’normal’ semester project, you work with an organization/firm to solve a task, that they set for you. Your academic semester project will be closely linked to this task. The exam consists of pitching your idea for the solution to your task and a report, which takes in more academic analysis of your work. The semester is interdisciplinary and students from both GRS and Tourism Studies at AAU follow the semester.
