4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The development of large group and small group lectures will be focused on promoting quality teaching by giving priority to activities that foster inclusive and equitable learning (SDG-4)"

A1. Large group lectures

They are based in the explanation of the theory concepts, exercises and practical problems of the course.

A2.  Small group lectures
They are based on the explanation of the practical units in the lab including the execution by the students and resolution of problems in class.

The use of electronic devices in classes and exams is forbidden except that they are required for the right development of learning activities and always with the authorization of the lecturer.

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

CONTINUOUS EVALUATION

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, the following competencies  will be evaluated: CB6,CB7,CB8,CB9,CB10, CG1, CG4,CG5,CG6,CG9,CG10,CT1,CT2,CT3,CT4,CT5,CT6,CT7, CE2,CE3,CE5

The positive evaluation will assume that the student has achieved the following learning outcomes: 1,2,3,4,5

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.

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.

8. VIRTUAL TEACHING SCENARIO
