Toteutustapa

20% face to face, 80% Online course

This course has a combination of contact lessons and virtual lessons in Zoom and is also partly implemented through a virtual game called International Correctional Services Officer of the Year.

The following competence areas are:

  • Oral communication skills needed for the workplace: presentations; describing services; interviewing skills;
  • Constructive communication (Nonviolent Communication)
  • Reflective written skills
  • Intercultural competences
  • Field-specific vocabulary and understanding

As mentioned above this course is based on a virtual game called International Correctional Services Officer of the Year in the game platform Seppo. Assignments are in the game which will be played in teams. Supporting material is provided in lectures. You will require a mobile device: phone, pad or laptop to participate. However, as the game is in teams one device per team is sufficient.

Also the basics of Constructive Communication (Nonviolent Communication) will be taught as a professional and personal communication method to facilitate, empathetic encounters with clients, self-empathy and self-development.

Upon completion of the course, a student should be able to

  • communicate orally and in written form in workplace and academic related dialogues
  • have a basic understanding of constructive communication
  • use field related vocabulary
  • be aware of field-related intercultural influences and possibilities

Arviointimenetelmät ja arvioinnin perusteet

  • Evaluation includes both a written and oral demonstration of skills which are graded 0-5
  • Both of the above skills demonstrations need to be accepted to pass the course
  • The evaluation criteria for the course are available in Optima based on a combination of the Common European Framework for Languages and working life competences.
  • Many workplaces require English skills of at least a B2.1 level according to the Common European Framework for languages, which is equivalent to a grade 3 according to the evaluation system in this course.
  • Various assignments will also be given during the course which also need to be completed to pass the course.
