- 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 assessment of the internship will be based on the students effective carrying out of the internship and the assessment of this made by the academic tutor and the internship tutor in their respective reports of performance.
The final mark will be a weighted average calculated following these percentages:
a) 30% will arise from the assessment given to students on the successful completion of their internship (attendance, punctuality, etc.) as well as from the internship report that students will have to write after finishing it. In this report students will include the different tasks assigned to them in the company, organism or institution where they did their internship, as well as their perception of the satisfaction and experience and knowledge obtained from it.
b) 70% will arise from the assessment given to students by both their tutors, the academic one and the internship one after the completion of the internship. To obtain this assessment the reports written by both tutors will be taken into account. So as to be able to draft their reports, both tutors will be given guidelines for the assessment of the performance of student's during the internship. Several aspects will be taken into consideration, like the students' initiative and learning capacity, their skills in solving the suggested cases, their teamwork qualities and, in general, any other detail that can help to assess the progress of students during the internship.
