During the first weeks of the course (10 sessions), a flipped classroom methodology will be used. Each week the students should watch the videos and complete the self-assessment activities of 1 or 2 modules of the SPOC "Basic concepts for electronic circuits and components". During the face-to-face classes of the week, practical activities will be carried out to reinforce the contents of the SPOC modules, including exercise classes, computer simulations and practical assemblies in the laboratory. In the remaining 19 sessions, a methodology based on lectures, practical classes for solving exercises and laboratory sessions will be developed.
Overall, during the 29 face-to-face sessions of the course, the training activities are organized as following:
- 25% Lectures (1.5 ECTS) where the main concepts are presented on the basis of mathematical tools and circuit analysis tools. The learning materials include the lecture notes, the classroom documentation, and the basic bibliography that is used as a reference for completing the themes and study them in depth.
-60% Practical classes (3.6 ECTS) that are focused on solving exercises and case studies, and also on the ongoing evaluation. These classes are completed with the exercises and practical problems that are solved by the students at home. The methods of solving these cases are complemented with the use of computer simulation tools.
- 15% Laboratory sessions (0.9 ECTS) where the students analyze, implement and measure in the laboratory basic electronic circuits with real application using the instrumentation and the measurement techniques.
- Group tutorial: At least a group tutorial will be carried out the recovery week as revision and final exam preparation.
