Competence Development 3 – Artistic Positioning
Brief course description
The Competence Development 1–3 courses are based on the student’s defined specialisation and build on the competence the student acquired during previous education and practice. In these courses the students shall continue to develop the skills that are necessary to enhance and realise their art. Each student will play a part in defining their goals, their progression and the skills they shall improve.
Competence Development 3 lets the student define their academic and artistic position as a basis for their Master’s project
The course focuses on the students developing and defining their artistic position. This position shall enable the students to transfer and use their skills when encountering complex collaborative constellations in practical work on both large- and small-scale forms of theatrical art.
Competence Development 1–3 are half-year courses that are assessed and completed after each semester. They build on one another and entail an academic progression. They lead up to the Master’s project, which is executed during semester 4.
The course’s learning outcomes
Upon completing the course, students shall
- be able to be a competent and responsive contributor using their own skills in productions where the aim is to develop artistic expressions through an advanced coordination of individual contributions in the creative work
- be able to engage in collective, transdisciplinary work on positions in their own specialisation
- be trained in using various technological tools to develop and present their own artistic project
Teaching and learning methods
The work methods may include educator-led teaching, supervision and independent work and consist of practical exercises, creative assignments, lectures, independent study, project work and written assignments.
The course’s working methods are characterised by an independent and practical training within the discipline.
- active participation and mandatory attendance at the scheduled times for teaching, supervision, group work, excursions, discussion forums and courses

The coursework requirements must be approved in order for a student to receive a final course assessment.
The student’s coursework will be assessed on an ongoing basis. The ongoing assessment is based on supervision, teacher assessments, group discussions and the student’s independent reflection on their own academic development as seen in relation to the course’s learning outcomes.
The course coordinator will carry out the ongoing assessment and the final assessment.
The course uses a grading scale of A to F, where A is the best grade and F is a failing grade.
