All the above mentioned days will take point of departure in the e-shop, but will naturally also relate to “normal” businesses. Throughout the 10 days various cases will be part of the class activities as well as work on the group assignment “creating a webshop with online purchase possibilities”.
Method of delivery
The teaching method will be a combination of seminar-type lectures and discussions, case work, and individual research. The lecture will cover the assigned topic, but will not necessarily cover the material as presented in the text. Lectures, class discussions and in-class exercises are not designed to reiterate the textbook, articles and/or other handout materials, especially with regard to presentation. You are expected to attend all classes and to be prepared to discuss and/or apply assigned readings. Students will be called upon by name to discuss assigned topics and concepts.
