Learning activities and methodology
The continuous evaluation system is based on a practice-oriented teaching that aims to reinforce the learning of theory through direct experience in cases that should facilitate the understanding and management of its content. Academic activities are divided into Master Lessons (large group) and Practice Sessions (small groups). 1. Master classes (Large Groups), in which the general lines of the subject matter of the corresponding topic will be exposed. These sessions will be taught remotely through the platform indicated by the teacher. 2. Practical Sessions (Small Groups), in which specific activities are developed through which a practical vision of the content of the topics will be offered. The activities to be carried out will consist of solving practical exercises, as well as, where appropriate, other control activities such as reading the bibliography or relevant sentences and surprise tests or questions to check the level of knowledge on the topics. These activities will be duly announced in Aula Global. The sessions will be taught in person, except in exceptional cases for the groups that the teaching load establishes. The tutorials will be held at the time and under the conditions determined by the teacher in Aula Global. If new extraordinary measures are adopted that require distance teaching, it will continue to be taught under the same conditions initially foreseen (with the same programming, methodology, activities, etc.), although all practical sessions will be taught online .
