The doctoral programme officer books the necessary facilities for the duration of the course and registers the course in OPTIME and SISU. The room rents are excluded from the course budget if teaching is done in the University of Helsinki facilities. Please, do not make your own lecture room bookings for the courses!
The course organizer prepares the program. The doctoral programme will advertise the course to doctoral candidates in the doctoral programme(s) and the Doctoral School in Health Sciences (DSHealth). The course organizers are also encouraged to use their own targeted channels for further advertisement.
The course organizer invites and instructs speakers and lecturers. For travel arrangements, please contact CWT (email@example.com; +358 (0)205 615 635) and/or firstname.lastname@example.org should the doctoral program pay for the tickets directly. More information on travelling is available in Flamma.
Course page and Moodle area

On the course page you can add course materials such as course program, links etc. On the course page, you can also create a Moodle area for the course. Moodle can be used to distribute course material, organize discussions, collect students’ assignments and inform about grades.
