In the large-group sessions ("magistrales"), the teacher will present the main contents of the subject. During the sessions, students will also answer short surveys and quizzes. The goal of these quizzes is to motivate the questions raised in class, improve students' understanding of the concepts and tools discussed in class, and provide feedback to students.
In the small-group sessions, students will solve exercises, review the homework, participate in the discussion of case studies and news articles, present and debate case studies prepared by student teams, and take tests.
In addition to in-class activities, students should read the assigned readings prior to the large-group sessions and prepare the materials assigned for the small-group sessions (readings, problem sets, cases for discussion). To review the materials, students will be able to take online review tests at their own pace. Students will also prepare an in-depth case study in teams. In addition to the written analysis, student teams will present their study in class.
The course's 6 ECTS credits are distributed as follows: 3 credits for in-class activities, 2 credits for students' individual work, 1 credit for team work.
Both the large-group and small-group teachers will hold weekly office hours.
