Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The overall aim of this semester is to support the participants in fulfilling all MPBL programme learning outcomes, as given in section 2.5 of this curriculum, through the Master’s thesis project.

Through this project you should achieve skills and competences enabling you to:

Learning objectives

  • Reflect on your own learning process and development of teaching competences during the MPBL, as documented in your updated Teaching Portfolio.


  • Critically analyse the MPBL programme learning outcomes in section 2.5 in this curriculum, with the aim of identifying missing gaps in learning outcomes, i.e. learning outcomes which you have not yet fully achieved
  • Based on above, design and plan a final year project that aims to achieve missing programme learning outcomes
