|Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):|
|M1 - Use of the e-learning platform to store educational material that will be made available to the student.|
M2 - Resolution of exercises (theoretical/practical lessons) to apply the concepts taught in lectures
M3 - Experimental works that will awaken the critical spirit of the students and apply the theoretical concepts learned.
M4 - Experimental protocols and their attachments with the forms to be completed by the students after each experimental activity.
Theoretical- Two summative assessment tests, 2 h (50% each of the final grade). The student must obtain an average of 9.5 or above.
Practice- Two summative assessment tests, 2 h (25% each of the final grade) + execution of the experimental protocols and completion of the respective forms (50% of the final grade). The student must obtain an average of 9.5 or above.
|Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:|
|M1 - Using the e-learning platform to store educational material that will be made available to the student: all objectives. M2 - Resolution of exercises (TP lessons) to apply the concepts taught in lectures: objectives O4 to O8 and O10 to O14. M3 - Experimental work that will awaken the critical spirit of students and apply the theoretical concepts learned: objectives O1 to O3. M4 - Experimental protocols and their annexes with the forms to be completed by the students after each experimental activity: objectives O1 to O3, O8 and O11.|
