|Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):|
|Teaching Methodology - Starting from an expository methodology of the legal, doctrinal, and jurisprudential conceptualization of the syllabus, a practical methodology is also integrated in which case studies presented by the professor and the students are analysed, whether they are integrated in group work or individually developed. This whole cognitive process of learning and the practical application of the acquired theoretical knowledge is accompanied by encouraging |
students to research and promote their autonomous study. It is intended, therefore, a “know-how” added to a “know-how”.
Continuous assessment - During the classes, two written tests are carried out, each with a weighting of 50% for the final grade. In each test the student must obtain a minimum grade of 8 (eight) values. Final Exam - Written exam lasting 2 hours and with a total weight of 100% for the final grade.
|Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:|
|The evidence that the teaching methods are adapted to the objectives proposed in this Course, stands out for the fact that, in each class, we start from an expository methodology of the legal, doctrinal and jurisprudential conceptualization of the syllabus, in which all the themes are explained of the program, to then make practical cases on the subject in the classes, leading that in the end the student has achieved the knowledge, skills and competences outlined.|
