It is imperative that the student reads the recommended chapters or articles before the class. These will be provided in advance.
1) Lectures: During the lectures, the proposed topic will be presented, always encouraging discussion.
2) Discussion Sessions: When the topic allows it, groups of 3-5 will be formed for discussion sessions to solve particular problems related to the current topic with the main idea of understanding the system and developing different strategies to solve it, underlining the fact that there are almost always different approaches to the same problem.
3) Oral Presentations: At least once during the course, each student will have the chance to do a short oral presentation on a topic related to the course. These oral presentations will be prepared either individually or in groups.
Homework will be assigned frequently throughout the course and will count for the assessment.
