Guidelines (to be discussed further):

One lecture a day – not all days, but most days every week.

One lecture is appr. two hours, including translation, questions and answers.

All lectures will be in English, if not otherwise planned (in case of help from Norwegian-Dari translator).

Some lectures may be followed by group work, and if the lecturers would prepare one or two questions, the groups can work independently with these questions. The students will then have to form groups and elect group leaders and write a small report from the group work.

The lectures are generally conducted between 1000 and 1600, according to the availability of the lecturers – and the needs of the students.

After every lecture, it would be nice if one of the students would present some information about his country and his experiences with his life the country – so that the lecturers can also learn some more (this has to be organised by the students themselves).

All lecturers will have Zahir’s number and can contact him and the other contacts if there is any change in schedule. Also if there is a change of plans from the students’ side, they should inform the coordinators.
