Timing of the Winter School
Winter School programs generally include pre-course assignments, 2-3h of intensive lessons in the morning, a break, and
workshops in the afternoon. Students should have 27h of studies per week, but it does not have to be face-to-face contact time with the teacher. The school is also well equipped to guide interested lecturers on how to give part of their lectures using various distance education tools and virtual learning environments.
The Winter School on Arctic Business and Arctic Tourism will take place at the School of Business and Culture, Rovaniemi Campus. There are two core modules within which the invited lecturers could accommodate their own lecture subjects depending on their expertise and interests:
