Learning activities and methodology
Theoretical lectures: 1.5 ECTS. To achieve the specific cognitive competences of the course (PO a) Practical lectures: 1 ECTS. To develop the specific instrumental competences and most of the general competences, such as team working, capacity to apply theoretical concepts, synthesis and analysis, and planning and organizing. Besides, to develop the specific attitudinal competences. During the practical lectures students work in groups designing and developing a web application. (PO a, c, d, g). Guided academic activities - Present teacher: * 1 ECTS. The student proposes a project according to the teachers guidance to go deeply into some aspect of the course, followed by public presentation (PO a, c, d, g, k). * 1 ECTS. Guided project: Students carry out a project working in group and according to teachers¿ guidelines. 1.0 ECTS (PO a, d, g) - Absent teacher: 1 ECTS. Exercises and complementary readings. (PO a, c, g, k). Exercises and examination: 0,5 ECTS. To complete the development of specific cognitive and procedimental capacities (PO a, c).
