Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Seminar classes: Na zajęciach seminaryjnych podstawą jest prezentacja multimedialna oraz ustna prowadzona przez studentów. Kolejnym ważnym elementem kształcenia są odpowiedzi na powstałe pytania, a także dyskusja studentów nad prezentowanymi treściami.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Egzamin nie jest przewidziany.
Zaliczenie zajęć seminaryjnych: ocena z prezentacji.
Zaliczenie poprawkowe: dodatkowe prezentacje, a w przypadku nieobecności – kolokwium z całości materiału.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Studenci prezentują na forum grupy temat wskazany przez prowadzącego oraz uczestniczą w dyskusji nad tym tematem. Ocenie podlega zarówno wartość merytoryczna prezentacji, jak i tzw. kompetencje miękkie.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Prezentacja/Presentation (50%) + Kolokwium końcowe/Final test (50%)

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

1. W przypadku usprawiedliwionej nieobecności na własnej prezentacji – dodatkowy termin prezentacji.
2. W przypadku nieusprawiedliwionych nieobecności na więcej niż dwóch zajęciach – kolokwium zaliczeniowe z całości (student uzyskuje dostęp do materiałów dydaktycznych z zajęć na których nie był obecny)..
