4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

• Lectures which will develop the theory course subject a nd propose activities through issues , jobs, relationship problems , all this to encourage student participation .
• The practical classes will begin with an introduction and explanation of the teacher, leaving the development of it to the student.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

With the theory exam, the competences CE10,CE17,CE18,CE22 y CT2 are evaluated. With the accomplishment of practices, the competences CE10,CE17,CE18,CE22, CT4 y CT6 are evaluated

The student must pass the theory exam and also overcome the practical activities which will order from the teacher
