Learning activities and methodology
Theoretical lectures: 2 ECTS. To achieve the specific cognitive competences of the course. Practical lectures: 2,5 ECTS. To develop the specific instrumental competences and most of the general competences, such as analysis, abstraction, problem solving and capacity to apply theoretical concepts. Besides, to develop the specific attitudinal competences. Guided academic activities (present teacher): 1,5 ECTS. The student proposes a project according to the teachers guidance to go deeply into some aspect of the course, followed by public presentation.
