Our educational concept is based on a holistic view of knowledge. We believe that combining different subjects contextually enhances learning. For this reason, we teach through the Case Methodology, a didactic system stemming from Harvard University. More specifically, The Case Method is rooted in a reality and subject-based approach, meaning that we combine curricular subjects with topics, themes, situations, and events relevant to present society. Aside from its engaging nature, it prepares our students for the future; professionally, academically, and socially.
Sjölins are part of AcadeMedia, which is Northern Europe’s largest educational company. We are active throughout the education chain: preschool, elementary school, upper secondary school/high school and adult education. More information can be found at: www.academedia.se.
Our teaching is mainly organized through different cases. A case normally carries on for 6 weeks, and is based on a real event, situation, or dilemma, that conjoins courses and subjects thematically. Each case period starts with an engaging, and thought-provoking start-up, where the main issue or dilemma of the case is presented. After follows an investigative section when the students are allowed to examine the question or dilemma at hand through a variety of teacher led activities. The most case-characteristic activity is the seminar, which is an occasion where the students discuss and compare different relevant perspectives. Each case has a clear conclusion that contains presentations and examinations of different kinds. Examinations and assessments, however, take place throughout the case, and when it ends.
