Learning activities and methodology
The teaching methodology is based on theory lectures and group work by students . It is pertinent to make the practice team to promote the education , training and information potential of group work : quantity; quality ; creativity ; structuring and mental flexibility . Additionally , he serves as training students for their future professional work , then, as you know , most of the time, Computer and Software Engineering , always working as a team . The students' work is performed externally to the classes and these are used to correct errors and detect improvements in work groups and individual analysis of pupils Group work of the assigned part . This step must be performed by each group so independently. This second step of the methodology is fully active , unschooled and individualized to the group ; ie self-taught. Analysis and discussion groups in the classroom, the issues worked . This analysis will involve the decomposition of problems into subproblems , modularization of tasks, etc. . Sharing of the findings of each group and partial synthesis . These two steps of the method are described that take place simultaneously in the same work session. Theory Classes: 1.5 ECTS . Aim to achieve specific cognitive skills of the subject. Practical lessons : 1.5 ECTS . Develop generic and specific competencies explicit by performing an extended case group that brings together the entire syllabus of the course in one year whose resolution is defended on public display. Making Targeted Academic Activities . - With the presence of the teacher : 1.5 Working ECTS deepening in some aspect in relation to the theme of the course will culminate with a public presentation of the results thereof. - No teacher presence : 1.5 ECTS . Exercises and readings proposed by the teacher . Tutorials: Weekly the teacher makes available to the student 2 hours for possible tutorials that may arise as the subject matter is being worked on.
