4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The development of the lectures with both big group and small group of students will be focused to promote a quality teaching, prioritizing those activities that encourage an inclusive and equitable learning.

 A1 - Lectures with big group of students

 They are based on the explanation of the theory concepts, exercises and practical problems of the course. The students will be provided with teaching materials through the Virtual Teaching platform, that must be completed by the student with its own lectures notes and research through bibliography. Moreover, the student will be provided with the ability of being up to date with the novelties of science and technology, especially in this type of field, linked to a such dynamic environment as telecommunications, and in particular Telematics Engineering, highlighting the necessity of a continuous training along the professional career. Also, the ability to understand data and complex concepts of Telematics Engineering will be promoted, in order to express opinions linked to reflections about ethics and social aspects.

The autonomous work of the student will have to be focused on the revision and study of theoretical concepts as well as the exercises and practical problems.

 A2 - Lectures with practical groups

 They are developed in the lab, and they are based on the explanation of the practical units in the lab and their execution by the students. The students will be provided with teaching materials and the practical guides through the Virtual Teaching platform. A project based learning method will be adopted, since the practical units are focused on the development of two applications based on a set of specifications, and the deployment on a cloud platform.

 Regarding the autonomous work of the student, its work will be focused on the elaboration of the documentation to be delivered related to the practical units, and to finish at home the pending work of the laboratory. Also, the collaboration and team work will be encouraged based on the design of the practical units, together with the results communication, and highlighting the necessity of an autonomous continuous training along the professional career related to the activities linked to telecommunications.

A3 - Group Tutorials

 The group tutorials will be used for seminars about different topics related with the subject, for the resolution of doubts as well as for the assistance and participation to activities or conferences pointed by the lecturer, in order to complete the training and obtaining general, transversal and/or specific competences defined for the activity, such as the value of a continuous training, entrepreneurship or the review of technological novelties in the field.

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

GLOBAL ASSESSMENT modality

The Global Assessment modality will be carried out according to the outcomes of the activities described in the section "Methodology and activities", in addition to those described in the section "Detailed description of the Global Assessment" that will be weighted by considering the aspects and percentages detailed in the above table.

The Global assessment modality consists of two parts:

  • The work assessment during the term, according to the tasks defined for this purpose.
  • The completion of a FINAL EXAM on the day set for the exam during the evaluation period.

The distribution of the weights for each assessable aspect of the two aforementioned parts, and according to the activities described in the table above, is as follows:

Aspect

 

Teaching term

Final exam

Total

S1 Attendance and participation

10 %

-

10 %

S2 Theoretical concepts

15 %

15 %

30 %

S3 Completion of work, study cases and exercises

15 %

15 %

30 %

S4 Laboratory/ computer practical work

30%

-

30 %

Course Total

70 %

30%

100%

Grades obtained in an aspect during the teaching term in the GLOBAL assessment will be maintained until the end of the academic year.

Final Exam: At the end of the term, on the day set for the course within the exam period, there will be a final exam of the theoretical part and exercises of the course (aspects S2 and S3), in which students must demonstrate that they have acquired the competences and learning outcomes established for these aspects. The weight of this exam in the final grade will be 30% of the total, as reflected in the table "Weighting of the Global Assessment", with 15% corresponding to aspect S2 and the other 15% to aspect S3. The specific conditions, as well as the material and/or documentation that may be used in the final exam will be established by the lecturer.

Final Assessment

In order to pass the course, students must obtain a grade equal to or higher than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall results considering all the assessed aspects, provided that they have obtained a grade equal to or higher than 4.0 in the final exam and in the laboratory/computer practical part (S4).

Students will have the option of resigning the GLOBAL evaluation, and it will not be possible to return to it once the resignation has been made.

FINAL EXAM modality

In the FINAL EXAM modality, an exam will be held on the day set for the course within the exam period, which will cover all the course contents, ensuring that students have acquired the competences and learning outcomes established for the course. The two parts of this written exam are weighed as follows:

- Part 1: Attendance and participation, theoretical concepts and completion of study cases or exercises assignments (S1, S2, and S3): 70%.

-  Part 2: Laboratory/computer practical work (S4): 30%.

The specific conditions, as well as the material and/or documentation that may be used in the Final Exam will be established by the lecturer.

In order to pass the course, students must obtain a grade equal to or higher than 5.0 out of 10 in each of the two parts.

Students who have passed the S4 aspect (laboratory/computer practical work) of the course, through GLOBAL ASSESSMENT, with a grade equal to or higher than 5.0 out of 10, will not have to take Part 2 corresponding to this aspect in the exam. The same grade obtained in the GLOBAL ASSESSMENT will be assigned to this part.

The parts passed at each exam attempt will be maintained until the end of the academic year.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EVALUATION

 For those students under the global assessment, the evaluation will be based on the completion of the activities within the four aspects presented in the Evaluation System, that form all the assessable elements of the subject:

  • S1, Attendance and participation, 10%.
  • S2, Theoretical concepts, 30%.
  • S3, Completion of work, study cases and exercises, 30%.
  • S4, Laboratory/ computer practical work, 30%.

Next, the evaluation of each aspect is going to be detailed:

S1. Attendance and participation (10%)

In this aspect, the CG4, CB2, CB3, CB4 and CB5 competences are evaluated. A positive evaluation leads to the achievement of these competences or the learning results 2, 6, 7, 26, 27 and 35.

The attendance will be taken into account with the control of attendance to the laboratory activities, the active participation in the lectures and attendance to seminars, or other activities, organized by the Telecommunication Engineering Department, the Polytechnic School of Linares, or the University of Jaén being recommended by the lecturer.

The unjustified non-attendance to the laboratory activities will be evaluated in a negative way within the S1 aspect, as well as the non-attendance to the recommended activities. Also, it is mandatory to do all the programmed evaluations activities of the global assessment in order to pass S1 aspect.

S2. Theoretical concepts (30%)

In this aspect, the CG4, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, TEL1, TEL3 and TEL7 competences are evaluated. A positive evaluation leads to the achievement of these competences or the learning results 2, 6, 7, 26, 27 and 35.

The mark of this aspect is divided into two parts. One part (15%) corresponds with the written final exam for the theoretical concepts. The other part (15%) is divided into other two written evaluations along the teaching term.

S3. Completion of work, study cases and exercises (30%)

In this aspect, the CG4, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, TEL1, TEL3 and TEL7 competences are evaluated. A positive evaluation leads to the achievement of these competences or the learning results 2, 6, 7, 26, 27 and 35.

The mark of this aspect is divided into two parts. One part (15%) corresponds with the written final exam for the exercises. The other part (15%) is divided into other two written evaluations along the teaching term.

S4. Laboratory/ computer practical work (30%)

In this aspect, the CG4, CG9, CB2, CB3, CB4, CB5, TEL1, TEL3 and TEL7 competences are evaluated. A positive evaluation leads to the achievement of these competences or the learning results 2, 6, 7, 26, 27, 34 and 35.

The evaluation of the learning results linked to the practical work will be done with a rubric system which criteria will be detailed at the beginning of the practical units and, besides the completion of the tasks of the practical units, it will include two programming evaluations in the laboratory.
