Second semester
Subject Type:

5.1. Methodological overview

The organization of the actual teaching will be based on the following guidelines:

  • Theory/Practice Lectures: Theoretical activities carried out mainly through exposition by the teacher, where the theoretical supports of the subject are displayed, highlighting the fundamental, structuring them in topics and or sections, interrelating them.
  • Classroom practice work: Theoretical discussion activities or practice work preferably performed in the classroom and requiring high student participation and a performance directed by the teacher.
  • Autonomous works: Activity to be undertaken by the student personally. Usually done outside the classroom. Consultations in other media, application in OT-lab with the relevant software, laboratory or at home . Professor , at the request of the student , tracks the students work.
  • Individual / group tutorials: These are the ones done through personalized attention, individually or in groups, from the teacher in the department. They aim to help to solve the problems that students come across, following a schedule published in the Web of the EUPLA. These tutorials can be on-site or virtual (Moodle).

5.2. Learning tasks

  • Theoretical / practical lessons (20h): The theoretical concepts of the subject will be explained and illustrative practical examples will be developed as support for the theory when it is deemed necessary.
  • Classroom practice (20h): Students will, individually or in groups, perform part of the Practical Exercises and will be monitored by the teacher.
  • Study and personal work: This off-site part is given about 60 hours of work, necessary for the study of theory, problem solving and the production of school work (Practical Exercises) valid for assessment.
  • Tutorials and generic off-site activities: Each teacher will publish a schedule of Studentservice throughout the semester.
