4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

 

A1 - Lectures in large group

 The methodology to be followed in the lectures in large group lectures will be a mixture of theory and exposing and general examples in the classroom designated for the subject in the middle.

 The student must follow the teacher's presentation with the material provided for this purpose, slide show notes, which must be completed with your own notes and the subsequent revision of the recommended basic bibliography.

Active, respectful and responsible participation, either to raise questions or to respond to requests or questions from the teacher, will be evaluated positively in a corresponding factor.

The autonomous student work should focus on the review of the concepts and theoretical aspects taught in class, conducting exercises and studying them with the material provided by the teacher, student notes and bibliography.

Furthermore, control lectures will be held to monitor the progress and assimilation of the concepts by students.

 

A2 - Classes in groups of practices

Firstly, work in small group classes will be based on practical activities in the laboratory. The student's work will focus on developing applications or learning tasks designated by the teacher, culminating with the achievement of the targets for each practice. Secondly, small group classes consist of solving exercises and practical issues about the subject.

Attendance and active, respectful and responsible participation, either to raise questions or to respond to requests or questions from the teacher, it will be evaluated positively in a corresponding factor.

With regard to self-work, it will focus on the development of the documentation to be submitted for every practice and exposition, and to complete the work that has been initiated in the laboratory and that could not be completed in the corresponding session.

Furthermore, controls sessions in the small group classes will be held to monitor the progress and assimilation of the concepts by students.

 

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

DETAILED INFORMATION

At the end of the semester, the student has to choose between two methods of evaluation: CONTINUOUS EVALUATION or FINAL EXAM.

 

CONTINUOUS EVALUATION

This assessment method is organised according to the activities described in the previous table.

To pass the subject, the student has to get a mark higher or equal than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall result of the evaluated aspects, as long as he or she has obtained a mark higher or equal than 4.0 in each one of those assessed aspects.

 

FINAL EXAM EVALUATION

This kind of evaluation is based in only one written exam that evaluates all the aspects of the subject, by assessing the students' acquisition of all the competences and learning outcomes established in the subject. This exam will take place during the Examination period on a date established by the centre. The final exam is weighted in the following way:

- Attendance and participation (S1), Theoretical concepts (S2) and Exercises, problems and study cases (S3): 70%.

- Laboratory and computer practical work (S4): 30%.

 

In order to pass the subject, the student must have marks higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 at each part of the final exam.

The students who have already fulfil the requirements of aspect S4 (Laboratory or computer practical work) through the CONTINUOUS EVALUATION, by obtaining a mark higher or equal to 5.0 out of 10 do not have to make this part in the FINAL EXAM evaluation.

Those aspects successfully completed with a mark higher or equal to 5.0 will be considered passing during that academic year.
