However, the teacher will encourage student participation, recommending the reading of certain materials that serve for a better understanding of the explanation or the preparation of a next topic. In relation to the possible training activities, it is considered essential that the student can develop arguments and take a position on certain problems that the subject presents. Hence, the development of the tests that will define the continuous evaluation. Given that the coordinator of the subject is always available to the students, it does not seem necessary to establish a fixed regime of tutorials.
