Learning activities and methodology
Lectures. o Oriented or teaching specific skills of matter. In them, the knowledge that students should acquire will be presented. To facilitate their development the students will have basic texts of reference that allows them to complete and deepen those subjects in which they are most interested. In addition, students have access to standards and standards to be considered in audits and certification systems. Individual or group practices. o Within this subject practices, they will be carried out, which will be in group or individual, where students must analyze various topics given in class related to information technology, infrastructure, and technology for the design of information systems. The classes can be delivered through video conferencing systems to adapt students to new technologies. Academically supervised activities. o Resolution of practical exercises where they think the concepts taught in class. Work study student staff. o Oriented especially the acquisition of the capacity for self-organization and planning of individual work and learning process. o Oriented or skill acquisition discussion, assertive presentation and summary capabilities. o Oriented or professional certification of ITIL if the student wishes. Group tutorials. o During the quarter a collective mentoring I indovidual if necessary will be done.
