Teaching and examinations
Time and location
You will find time and place for teaching and examinations at the semester pages for each course. Please see the list of courses offered at the University of Oslo.
Teaching and learning methods
The teaching at the Department of Informatics is varied. The lectures present key parts of the theoretical syllabus, illustrated with selected examples. Through the work with mandatory assignments you will be trained in carrying out practical tasks in the course. This often takes place in small groups where students can interact with the group teacher/oracle as a resource when needed. The groups gather in classes with more teacher-guided instruction. Submissions and presentations will improve your scientific formulation skills, both written and oral.
If you wish to have an active influence on your academic life, it is natural to join the student organization for academics (fui). This organization has student representatives in all the governing boards at the Department of Informatics.
