Methodology and grading
- Case studies: Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.
- Cooperative learning: Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.
- Problem-based learning: Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
The subject matter of examination shall be as specified in the syllabus of the course. The following activities are assessed:
-Written exam consisting of questions of theory (15%), problems (55%) and practical issues (15%).
-To provide a report of each of the practices carried out (15%).
Additional Requirements: To be eligible for the note to the practical report, assistance is required, at least 80% of them. In case you can not attend practice, you can make an individual work proposed by the teacher.
