Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: Lectures: Treści prezentowane na wykładzie są przekazywane w formie prezentacji multimedialnej w połączeniu z klasycznym wykładem tablicowym wzbogaconymi o pokazy odnoszące się do prezentowanych zagadnień.
  • Laboratory classes: Laboratory classes: W trakcie zajęć laboratoryjnych studenci samodzielnie rozwiązują zadany problem praktyczny, dobierając odpowiednie narzędzia. Prowadzący stymuluje grupę do refleksji nad problemem, tak by otrzymane wyniki miały wysoką wartość merytoryczną.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

The reports from the laboratories.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: - Attendance is mandatory: Yes – Participation rules in classes: Studenci uczestniczą w zajęciach poznając kolejne treści nauczania zgodnie z syllabusem przedmiotu. Studenci winni na bieżąco zadawać pytania i wyjaśniać wątpliwości. Rejestracja audiowizualna wykładu wymaga zgody prowadzącego.
  • Laboratory classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: - Attendance is mandatory: Yes – Participation rules in classes: Studenci wykonują ćwiczenia laboratoryjne zgodnie z materiałami udostępnionymi przez prowadzącego. Student jest zobowiązany do przygotowania się w przedmiocie wykonywanego ćwiczenia, co może zostać zweryfikowane kolokwium w formie ustnej lub pisemnej. Zaliczenie zajęć odbywa się na podstawie zaprezentowania rozwiązania postawionego problemu. Zaliczenie modułu jest możliwe po zaliczeniu wszystkich zajęć laboratoryjnych.
Method of calculating the final grade:

EG- Exam Grade
LG- Laboratory Grade
Final Grade= 0.6EG+0.4LG
