  • Seminar classes: Reverse teaching technique; Self-organized Learning Enviroment; Work in groups; Brainstorm
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

In order to complete the seminar class, a presentation on a chosen subject must be given and the
student must take part in a discussion, which will be positively graded. In order to pass the subject in
the secondary term, a positive grade must be obtained from a test on the entirety of the material.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Official permision is necessary for participating in classes
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Official permision is necessary for participating in classes
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final grade = grade from oral presentation + grade from participation in discussions

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

If the requirements are met for obtaining a passing grade, the student is required to independently
catch up with the material. If he/she fails to do so, he/she must obtain a positive grade on a test that
pertains to the material discussed during his absence.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

None
