"Year's planning in terms" is a system used in Finland to distribute lessons to individual terms. These terms are usually several weeks long.
If you need to schedule every week differently, as is the case in schools for social and health professions, we recommend to use the calendar module by Untis.
Terms for several weeks
The Finnish system, which is also used in Austria under the name "Emphasis periods", is based on the idea upgrade subjects which are usually taught only 1 or 2 periods per week, and are therefore not so much valued by the students (and/or the parents). Such subjects with a lower number of weekly periods are often described as minor subjects.
Since the minor subjects are not taught in every term in this system of "Year's planning in term", the upgrading is obtained by the minor subjects being taught with the exact number of weekly periods in the terms, when they are taught, like the main subjects. The year's sum total of taught periods remains the same, the intensity of the lesson, however, is much higher in the terms in which the "minor subjects" are taught, and the students get the subjective feeling of the same "significance" of these subjects only due the almost same number of weekly periods.
Term complies with exactly one week
The schools for social and health professions distribute the yearly weekly periods over the individual weeks, taking into account the pedagogic and organisational parameters (e.g. which teacher is available at which time). Therefore, no periodic timetable exists, not even for a few weeks. The timetable changes completely every week. We recommend to use in this case the calendar module.
