Abstract [en]

This paper presents the ideas behind the course ‘IT in Society’, which aims to provide a setting in which students learn communication skills at the same time as they acquire multi-disciplinary knowledge and practice their future craft. The course uses disciplinary experts within a Computer Science perspective and a project-oriented structure. The paper presents the design of this course and the objectives behind the instructional choices, both of which are based on previous experiences, as well as observations from the first instance of the course. Among the problems addressed is keeping engineering students motivated to treat ‘soft’ courses (which provide non-technical skills) as seriously as they do ‘technical’ ones.
