4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

A1. Lectures in large groups.

They are based on the explanation of the theoretical concepts of the subject through lectures, alternating with the explanation of examples and problems. Students will be provided with teaching material through the Learning Management System (LMS) platform to follow the classes. This material must be completed by the student with their own class notes and consultations in the bibliographic resources. In addition, students will be provided with the ability to keep up to date with new developments in science and technology, especially in this type of subject, so closely linked to such a dynamic environment as telecommunications, and specifically Telematics Engineering, emphasising the need for continuous training throughout their professional lives. Likewise, the ability to collect and interpret data and handle complex concepts within Telematics Engineering will be developed and promoted, in order to make judgements that involve reflection on ethical and social issues.

A2. Practical groups classes

They take place in the laboratory, and are based on the teacher's explanation of the practical activities in the laboratory and the students' performance of them. The student will be provided with teaching material and the script of the reports to be developed through the LMS platform.

As regards autonomous work, this will focus on the preparation of the documentation to be handed in for each practical, as well as completing the work started in the laboratory and which could not be finished in the corresponding session. Likewise, collaboration and teamwork will be encouraged through the design of the practicals themselves.

A3. Group Tutorials.

Group tutorials will be used to give seminars on different topics related to the subject, to clarify doubts raised by the students, as well as to attend and participate in different seminars, talks, conferences, workshops and/or conferences, designated by the teacher, with the aim of completing the training and obtaining general, transversal and/or specific competences defined for this activity, such as the value of continuous training, entrepreneurship or the review of technological innovations in the subject.

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

At the end of the term the students can choose between two assessment modalities:  CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT or FINAL EXAM.

## Continuous Assessment

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

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, but with the condition of obtaining a grade equal to or higher than 4.0 in each of the individual aspects assessed.  Otherwise, in the case of failing any of these two conditions (a grade equal to or higher than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall results, or equal to or higher than 4.0 in any of the assessed aspects), the student must follow the Final Exam modality.

## Final Exam

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 CONTINUOUS 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 CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT will be assigned to this part.

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

With this system will be evaluated the following learning skills:

C8, CBB4, CG.3, CG.4, CG.9

7. VIRTUAL / CLASSROOM TEACHING SCENARIO

## Teaching methodology and learning activities

 Learning activities Format Teaching methodology Description A1. Lectures with big group of students 100% in person class Participatory master class sessions, lasting one or two hours each, held in the classroom. A2. Lectures with practical groups 100% in person class Development of practical sessions, lasting two hours each, in laboratories. A3. Tutorial lessons 100% in person class Tutorial sessions, both collective and individual, will be carried out preferably online (synchronous and/or asynchronous).   Tutoring sessions will be agreed between the person responsible for the subject/group and the students.

Schedule

The schedule can vary mainly due to the change from multi-modal scenario to the online one.

## Evaluation system

There are no changes in the evaluation format (weights of each section) or in what is specified in the detailed evaluation.

Since the evaluation of the subject is continuous, there will only be an exam in the event that the student opts for the Single Test Evaluation, which is summarized in the following tables:

Ordinary call

 Evaluation Format Description Percentage Final exam evaluation In-person 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. S1, S2 and S3: 70% S4: 30%

## Resources

Given that the attendance in the large group lectures and in the classes in practice groups is 100%, no exceptional resources are foreseen for them.
