7. VIRTUAL / CLASSROOM TEACHING SCENARIO

1) TEACHING METHODOLOGY AND TRAINING ACTIVITIES

The default teaching language will be Spanish. All activities will be face-to-face as far as the health situation allows, or 50% face-to-face (with group rotation and videoconference broadcast to the rest of the group), depending on the number of students enrolled in the course and the classroom capacity.

 Training activities Format    (face-to-face / online)* Teaching methodology description Expository classes: master classes, theory exposition and examples Face-to-face  or periodical rotation of students, provided that the classroom   has the technical system required for broadcasting. 45 one-hour sessions in the classroom (master classes, theory exposition and example resolution). If the classroom did not have the required broadcasting technical system, these sessions would be replaced by online videoconferences for all students. Practical classes: classes in  computer lab Face-to-face  or periodical rotation of students, provided that the classroom    has the technical system required for broadcasting. 9 one-hour practical sessions in computer lab. If the classroom did not have the required broadcasting technical system, these sessions would be replaced by online videoconferences for all students. Practical classes: practical problems and exercises Face-to-face  or periodical rotation of students, provided that the classroom    has the technical system required for broadcasting. 6 one-hour sessions  for solving problems and doing exercises in an autonomous way by students. If the classroom did not have the required broadcasting technical system, these sessions would be replaced by online videoconferences for all students. Tutorial sessions Face-to-face + online Tutorial sessions will be held face-to-face or by videoconference (synchronous at the scheduled time or asynchronous). English language will be used.

When appropriate, the teaching staff reserve the right to deny capture, publication,   broadcasting   or reproduction of their speech, image, voice and explanations.

2) ASSESSMENT SYSTEM

Face-to-face final exam (written test of exercises and practical problems):   80%.

Continuous assessment activities (resolution of practical cases with computer, which will be assessed throughout the teaching period):  20%.   Due to the continuous nature of these practical tests, their mark may be kept for the 2nd Extraordinary Call of the current academic year. Nonetheless, students who have not completed all continuous assessment activities, for some justified reason, can take a single global exam in which both the acquisition of knowledge and the ability to apply it to practical situations will be assessed.

A student will be marked as "No presentado" (no mark) if they do not take any tests or continuous assessment tasks and neither take the final exam.

If the exam or some of the assessment tests could not be carried out face-to-face, they will be carried out online (see the non-attendance scenario  and the data protection clause included in this syllabus).

All assessment material will be available in English.

3)    RESOURCES

The following resources will be used:

- Teaching classroom

- Computer lab

- Email

- Online teaching platform PLATEA (https://platea.ujaen.es/)

- Online whiteboard.

- Virtual PC service provided by the University of Jaén (to access the R software in case you have difficulties installing it on your personal computer).

Tutorial sessions will be held face-to-face or online by any of the available communication channels   (videoconference with Google Meet, forum, chat or email), preferably at the scheduled time indicated in this syllabus or exceptionally at a different time, upon request.

8. VIRTUAL TEACHING SCENARIO

1) TEACHING METHODOLOGY AND TRAINING ACTIVITIES

The default teaching language will be Spanish. Both theoretical and practical lessons will be adapted to the virtual format and will be preferably held by videoconference, at the scheduled time.

 Training activities Format (face-to-face / online)* Teaching methodology description Expository classes: master classes, theory exposition and examples Online 45 one-hour online sessions (master classes, theory exposition and example resolution) by videoconference, with the help of slides, virtual whiteboard and explanatory videos with examples and exercises. All the necessary material will be available on the virtual teaching platform. Practical classes: classes in  computer lab Online 9 one-hour practical sessions by videoconference. Since the required software (R) is free, students can easily carry out practical tasks developed in these online classes. The software R can also be used through the virtual PC service of the University of Jaén. Practical classes: practical problems and exercises Online 6 one-hour online sessions for discussion and resolution of problems and practical cases by students. Tutorial sessions Online Tutorial sessions will be held online by videoconference (synchronous at the scheduled time or asynchronous). English language will be used.

When appropriate, the teaching staff reserve the right to deny capture, publication,   broadcasting   or reproduction of their speech, image, voice and explanations.

2)      ASSESSMENT SYSTEM

Online final exam (written test of exercises and practical problems):   80%.

Online continuous assessment    activities    (resolution of practical cases with computer, which will be assessed throughout the teaching period):   20%.      Due to the continuous nature of these practical tests, their mark may be kept for the 2nd Extraordinary Call of the current academic year. Nonetheless, students who have not completed all continuous assessment activities, for some justified reason, can take a single global exam in which both the acquisition of knowledge and the ability to apply it to practical situations will be assessed.

A student will be marked as "No presentado" (no mark) if they do not take any tests or continuous asses  sment tasks and do not take the final exam.

All assessment material will be available in English.

Both continuous assessment tests and final exam will be online. To guarantee the reliability of this assessment system, the following measures will be taken:

1. If the number of students allows it, the continuous assessment tests on theoretical content may be carried out orally and individually.
2. The exam will be divided into different parts and the response time of each one will be limited.
3. Both continuous assessment tests and final exam will be aimed at evaluating the ability to understand the contents, the correct application of techniques and the interpretation of solutions.
4. While taking the continuous assessment tests and the exam, the students must be connected to a   Google Meet session, keeping the microphone and camera both open.
5. The online evaluation tests may be recorded, in order to provide them with evidential content for revisions or claims, according to the data protection clause included in this syllabus.

3)   RESOURCES

The following resources will be used:

• Email
• Online teaching platform PLATEA (https://platea.ujaen.es/)
• Online whiteboard
• Virtual PC service provided by the University of Jaén (to access the R software in case you have difficulties installing it on your personal computer)

Tutorial sessions will be held by any of the available online communication channels   (videoconference with Google Meet, forum, chat or email), preferably at the scheduled time indicated in this syllabus or exceptionally at a different time, upon request.
