The course includes product analysis, where the concept of quality is discussed and wool's fields of use in economic and ecological contexts. The students discuss the creative process and wool as a means of expression.|
|The working methods are student active where own creative work, studies and theoretical studies are integrated. The teaching takes the form of practical work, supervision, lectures, literature studies, study visits, seminars and presentations, both independently and in groups. Tasks are assigned during the course, and should be presented visually and orally at the course meetings.|
|The student's practical work is examined through oral and visual presentations. The literature is examined at a literature seminar. Also included is writing an individual discussion paper based on the contents of the course and the own development.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.

|Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus.
