High-quality and research-based teaching in order to assure student commitment and performance in the final exam is high on the university agenda. The purpose of this intervention study was to design and test a course co-ordination model which integrates the various/sub-course elements and thereby ideally strengthens the possibility of deep learning and high performance. Both qualitative and quantitative data provide indications of the positive impact of relational coordination in course planning. Qualitative data indicate overall satisfaction with the intervention among lecturers and students, and the quantitative data show that the students perform better in their final exam compared with previous years.
