4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The teaching methodology will consist of three different types of activities:

 

- Lectures delivered at the classroom. In these classes the concepts previously commented will be introduced and explained by the lecturer. In addition, exercises related to the matter studied will be also solved. The methodology used will be that indicated previously.

- Lab sessions: five lab sessions of two hours each will be held, all of them at the fluid mechanics experimental lab. These will consist of a theoretical introduction, followed by the measurements acquisition by the students. The students will subsequently analyze the results and compare them with the theoretical concepts studied to write an individual final report of each session. The methodology used will be that indicated previously.

- The collective mentoring sessions will consist of seminars related to the subject. The methodology used will be that stated above.

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

A minimum mark is needed to pass the exam.

The attendance to the practical sessions is mandatory. If a student has not attended all the laboratory practice sessions, he / she will not allowed to attend the exam and, therefore, will not be graded. A minimum calification must be obtained in the completion of the practice reports to pass the subject.

By means of the above assessements, the competences CC2 and CT4 will be evaluated, as well as the corresponding results.

7. VIRTUAL / CLASSROOM TEACHING SCENARIO

1) TEACHING METODOLOGY AND FORMATIVE ACTIVITIES

In general, in the multimodal or mixed scenario, the format will be "face-to-face 100" or "face-to-face 50% rotating". Theory classes will be held in person at 100% in those degrees and courses with a reduced number of students that allows it according to the capacity of the available classrooms. In those that do not, the classes will be face-to-face for 50% of the students, establishing two subgroups, which will rotate the attendance in alternate weeks. Classes will be broadcast by videoconference to the subgroup of students who do not attend class that week, for which purpose videoconference cameras will be installed in the classrooms.

The teaching methodology will consist of three types of activities:

Expository classes, taught electronically synchronously. In these classes the teacher will present and explain the concepts corresponding to the content section. Also, exercises related to the studied subject will be solved. The methodologies used will be: Master classes, Theory exposition and general examples, Introductory activities and Conferences.

Laboratory sessions: five laboratory sessions of two hours each will be held.
They will be taught face-to-face in the laboratory (also electronically synchronously in the case of "face-to-face 50% rotating" format). These sessions will consist of a brief theoretical introduction, followed by the acquisition of measurements by the students in the laboratory or, where appropriate, the provision of the necessary values to carry out the corresponding calculations. The students will later analyze the results, comparing them with the theoretical concepts studied and, finally, they will be able to make an individual report of each session. The methodologies used will be: Practical activities, Laboratories, Computer rooms, Exercise resolution, Presentations / exhibitions, Seminars or Video tutorials.

The collective tutoring sessions will consist, fundamentally, of seminars related to concepts specific to the subject. The methodologies used in these and in the individual tutorials
They will be: Supervision of directed works, Seminars, Debates, Clarification of doubts, Comments of works
Individual, Presentations / exhibitions.

 In summary, the following activities and methodologies are considered for the mixed format:

Formative Activities

Teaching Metodology

Description

A-1 Large group  theory classes

50% rotating attendance (*)

Classes in the timetable and  classroom assigned to a part of the group and retransmssion to the rest, with rotation, as determined by the Centre

A2- Small group classes

Presential 100% (**)

Class at the assigned time and laboratory.

Tutorials

50% rotating attendance (*)

Class in the schedule and classroom assigned to part of the group and electronically to the rest, with periodic rotation of students, as determined by the Center.

 (*) The Center may establish a different attendance percentage depending on the number of students and capacity of the classroom / laboratory according to sanitary measures.
(**) The Center may establish rotating attendance depending on the number of students and capacity of the classroom / laboratory according to the sanitary measures (class in the schedule and classroom / laboratory assigned to one part of the group and telematic transmission to the rest, with periodic rotation of students, as determined by the Center).

2) EVALUATION SYSTEM

The evaluation system of the subject will be the same contemplated in the 100% face-to-face case, in order to give certainty to the students enrolled in the subject and according to what is established in the memory of the corresponding grade.

This decision is reinforced by the fact that the training methodologies and activities will not undergo any change with respect to the 100% face-to-face case.

At the time of obtaining the final grade, it will be necessary to have obtained a minimum grade in the final exam to proceed with the average.

The realization of the practices is obligatory. If a student has not attended all the laboratory practical sessions, they will not be able to take the exam and therefore will not be graded.

Through the different evaluation instruments, the competences will be evaluated, and especially the CC2 and CT4, as well as the corresponding results.

In summary, the evaluation system will be:

3)RESOURCES

Although the training activities or the methodology have not undergone any modification (with the exception of the retransmission of the classes if necessary), if the theory teaching were in a "face-to-face 50% rotating" format, it would be carried out in part of virtual form (in its synchronous modality), with no 50% face-to-face variation. In this sense, the methodology would remain the same, that is, classes using presentations and whiteboards, seminars, etc., but they would in turn be relayed through virtual sessions in google-meet or similar to 50% of students who were in virtual format at that time.

The practical classes will continue to take place in a 100% classroom setting in the laboratory. If this is not possible, these will be in "rotating face-to-face" format.

8. VIRTUAL TEACHING SCENARIO

1) TEACHING METHOLOGY AND TRAINING ACTIVITIES

The teaching methodology will consist of three types of activities:

Expository classes: taught electronically synchronously. In these classes the teacher will present and explain the concepts corresponding to the content section. Also, exercises related to the studied subject will be solved. The methodologies used will be: Master classes, Theory exposition and general examples, Introductory activities and Conferences.


Laboratory sessions: a total number of five laboratory sessions of two hours each will be conducted synchronously via telematics. These sessions will consist of a brief theoretical introduction, followed by the acquisition of measurements by the students in the laboratory, or where appropriate, the provision of the necessary values; to carry out the corresponding calculations. The students will later analyze the results, comparing them with the theoretical concepts studied and, finally, they will be able to make an individual report of each session. The methodologies used will be: Practical activities, Laboratories, Computer rooms, Exercise resolution, Presentations / exhibitions, Seminars or ideotutorials. Alternatively, the small group sessions may contemplate the resolution of practical cases related to the subject of the practices.


Collective tutoring sessions: they will be taught electronically synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the activity carried out. They will consist, fundamentally, of problem solving, clarification of doubts, debates, seminars, tutoring of papers, presentation of papers or conferences related to concepts specific to the subject. The methodologies used in these and in the individual tutorials will be: Supervision of directed works, Seminars, Debates, Clarification of doubts, Comments on individual works, Presentations / exhibitions.

In summary, the training activities do not undergo any change with respect to the 100% face-to-face case, except that they go into virtual mode.
