The student will also be able to analyse and prepare concrete decentralisation measures, and to communicate problems, ideas and solutions to the professional community and decision-making bodies.

Matching Assessments to Learning Outcomes:

Knowledge is tested in seminars and by oral examination.

1. Seminar

Seminar is a form of group work where students under the teacher's guidance analyse certain units in more detail, focusing on concrete problems from administrative practice. Half of teaching hours are planned for seminar work in which students will independently solve concrete tasks connected with the process od decentralisation.

 

2. Oral examination

Oral examination consists of reproduction of acquired knowledge, its understanding and application to the analysis of the process of decentralisation and basic social phenomena which influence this process. Students are expected to critically evaluate the approach to and policy of decentralisation in Croatia, and to formuzlate proposals for the improvement of this process. The students are also expected to express their opinions about certain teaching unit analysed within the course (learning outcomes A.a to A.d).
