5.1. Methodological overview
There are two learning methodologies: (1) learning in the class or in the lab supervised by the teacher (2) individual learning out of the class.
There will be three kind of supervised learning activities: (1) big group classes (2) reduced group classes (half of the group) and (3) lab sessions (four groups of three students each).
In each context, the most suited tools will be used to increase the performace of the learning activities.
On the other hand, the student will have to review some readings and videos to supplement his learning outside the class. Besides, the student will have to reply to some questions every week.
In addition, the student will be able to contact the teacher individually to solve specific problems.
5.2. Learning tasks
Big group classes
Each session will be divided in three parts:
 Brief lecture to give an overview of the main concepts.
 The students solve an example about the lecture.
 The example is solved in front of the class and some debate is carried out.
Small group classes
Each session will last for one hour.
 The teacher chooses two exercises.
 The students solve these problems in pairs.
 The teacher walks around the class and replies to questions.
 Finally, the solution is discussed.
Lab sessions
There will be five lab sessions within the term, each one lasting two hours.
In each session, there will be four groups of three students each.
In this context, the teacher will have a wonderful opportunity to explain the most relevant topics of Fluid Mechanics.
Student individual work
The student will have to carry out and sumbit some short exercises every week. This will encourage the student to keep up the attention on the course throughout the whole term.
On the other hand, to improve communications and autonomouslearning skills, a small project will be carried out in groups involving two more courses from the same term ("Materials Engineering" and "Mechanics"). In this project, the methodology "Problem Based Learning" will be employed.
Clinical tutorials
The teacher will be available to discuss the doubts with the students individually.
