Reflective Practice (RP)

Course description



The overall purpose of this course is that students should be given the opportunity to translate theoretical knowledge into professional experience, thereby enriching their overall knowledge, skills and abilities in the field of business studies.

The internship course may also serve as preparation for a subsequent master’s thesis, where empirical studies and data collection are essential. Having completed the course the students should be able to reflect upon the everyday activities in an organization, particularly from a business perspective, and also be better prepared to understand the context of organizational decision-making.



Intended Learning Outcomes

The overall purpose of this course is that students should be given the opportunity to translate theoretical knowledge into professional experience, thereby enriching their overall knowledge, skills and abilities in the field of business studies. The internship course may also serve as preparation for a subsequent master’s thesis, where empirical studies and data collection are essential. Following completion of the course, the student is expected to:

Knowledge and Understanding
- explain what in particular characterizes practical, action-based knowledge;
- discuss the differences between theoretical and practical knowledge;

Competence and Skill
- implement a theoretically based, reflective analysis of the experience of the internship, in which literature from both this course and earlier program courses will be used;

Judgement and Approach - critically reflect upon and evaluate whether and if so how the skills acquired through training can be translated into practical experience, and conversely, how practical experience can be used to develop theoretical, science-based reasoning;
- independently formulate and evaluate the theoretico-practical training elements of importance and relevance to a future career.
