Learning activities and methodology
SPECIAL SITUATION COVID. In undergraduate studies: all subjects will be bimodal 50% (synchronous online teaching in a master group or aggregate, face-to-face teaching in a small group). The transversal subjects will follow the specific modality approved in the Governing Council Given the possibility that in this course the two scenarios are combined (and that they could not take final exams in person), the teacher will be able to: - Increase the number of continuous assessment tests, taking partial exams or other types of intermediate tests to have a more accurate assessment of the students' performance. - Increase the weight of the continuous evaluation and, consequently, decrease the value of the test or final exam in the grade of the subject. The learning process is based on a practice-oriented education. Therefore, regular lectures will be supplemented with in-class analysis and discussion of cases and materials, which will facilitate the understanding and application of the legal concepts. Therefore, the teaching activities are divided into "lecture type" sessions (for the whole group) and case-oriented sessions or discussion groups (in small rooms). The activities carried out in small groups are subject to the ¿on-going¿ or continuing evaluation during the course. 1. In the lecturing sessions, the professor will present the main concepts and ideas, pertaining to each of the units or lessons in which the syllabus is divided. 2. Case-oriented sessions will provide a practical approach to the different topics, through the analysis and discussion of real cases or selected reading materials. In the small groups, the curricular activities might also include "multiple choice" tests or other types of exams, covering a part of the course program. Those activities will be duly announced by the professor in the "Aula Global" electronic website
