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.
- Cooperative learning: Develop active learning through cooperative working strategies among students and promote shared responsibility to reach group goals.
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Problem-based learning: Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.
- Final grade: The final grade will be weighted sum of theory and practice grades, as long as it has passed (5 before weighting) each of the parties. The final grade for the course is calculated as follows: 70% correspond to the theoretical exam grade, while the practical part will be scored to a proportion of 30% of the final grade for the course.
- Theory: multiple choice test with four response alternatives. Correction formula: (right answers - (mistakes / 3) / number of questions). Each error takes 0.33 away. The pass mark is 5.
- Practice: will be evaluated based on the activity in class and the work presented.
You will need to have submitted and approved practices to pass the course, both ordinary and extraordinary call.
Final grade = (theory grade x 0.7) + (0.3 x practice grade)
