Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Seminar classes: The seminar classes are based on the multimedia and oral presentation of the students. Other important elements are the answers given by the students to received questions and the discussion between the students on the presented topic.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

In order to complete the course, 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 theoretical
material.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Seminar classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Students will present a topic provided by the lecturer in front of the group and take part in a discussion on the topic. Both the merit and the visual presentation will be graded.
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final grade = 0.8 x grade from oral presentation +0.2 x
grade from participation in duscussions

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:

No additional requirements
