In order to achieve the objectives of the course, it is divided into a part of classroom teaching hours work and another part of individual work outside the classroom. Classroom time is divided between theoretical classes and practices.
In the theoretical classes will be presented the topics of the programme, developing their essential points. For better use of the theoretical classes the student must read, understand and study, at least, the compulsory readings of each topic. Will be another additional bibliography for the subject in general and for each particular topic.
The practical part of the course is divided into two:
A. First, not assessable exercises done in class, on the basis of consultation of web pages, readings texts and newspaper articles related to policies, programmes and services. These practical exercises allow students to determine whether they have understood and assimilated the theory, and ask new questions that had not come to him during the theoretical explanation. Also they help to connect the contents of the subject with the current reality.
B. Complementarily, student will make, individually, 2 or 3 evaluable practices throughout the course. The questions raised in these individual exercises will be similar to those that have been addressed in non-assessable practical exercises done previously.
