4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

• Lectures which will developthe theory course subject and propose activities through issues, jobs,relationship,problems, all this to encourage student participation.
• Thepractical classeswill beginwith an introductionand explanation of theteacher,leavingthe developmentof it to thestudent.

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 competencesCB2R, CB3R, CB5R,, CE10R, CE17R,CE22R, CE10,CE17,CE18,CE22 y CT2 are evaluated. With the accomplishment of practices, the competences CE11R, CE18R, CE22R, CE10,CE17,CE18,CE22, CT1,CT4 y CT6 are evaluated

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