5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process that has been designed for this course is based on the following activities:

 

In the process of learning, different teaching methods will be used: expository didactic techniques for the theoretical classes and more participatory techniques will also be used. This second type of activities allows student involvement in the learning process and allows the teacher to realise the problems and concerns that may arise in the various topics.

In addition to the scheduled classes, the student must make an effort to study and be familiar with the basic content of the course.

5.2. Learning tasks

The programme offered to the students to help them achieve the learning results includes the following activities:

1: Theoretical Classes: these will consist of lectures, in which the fundamental concepts of the topics of the programme will be explained by the teacher.

 

2: Practical Classes: two kind of activities will be used:

  • Activities to learn theoretical concepts but with the active participation of the students, because they will apply already acquired knowledge to the understanding of new concepts.
  • Resolution of practical exercises.

 

3: Tutorials: they allow a more direct and personal support to students in order to answer questions about the contents of the subject and guide them in their studies and in the resolution of exercises. These tutorials may be individual or in a group.
