Abstract [en]

This empirical phenomenographic study discusses the aims, which students in a project course in computer systems, strive to reach and how they go about in their efforts to reach these aims. Three different motives have been identified: academic achievement; project and team working capacity; and social competence. Certainly, a student aims by taking a course largely influence the nature of her or his learning. Thus, the students can be thought of as taking different courses. The students can further approach these "different courses" in a variety of ways. The paper demonstrates that some of the ways to approach the learning are better than others in terms of a good learning outcome.
