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:

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:

Participation in classes min. 80% of lecture hours – 60%
Written test – 40%

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