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.
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
- It will be done a face to face, written, type test exam, with multiple choice (five options and a one correct answer) that will consist of 25 questions covering the specific contents of the subject.
The rating system will be over 100:
-Type test exam mark: 50%
-Attendance at face-to-face activities: 20%
-Tasks/attendance in the Forum of the subject: 30%
