|Class Attendance (theory) [ON-SITE]||Combination of methods||B01 B02 B03 B04 B05 EM13 G03 G09 G10 G13 G14 G15 T01 T02 T03 T04 T05 T06 T07 T08||1.44||36||Y||N||The following teaching methodologies will be used in combination: Expository method/lecture, case study and problem solving and/or case studies. The availability of teaching resources will be accessible in the Virtual Campus before the beginning of the activities. In addition, students will have access to bibliographic material in the university library of the Albacete campus. The active participation of the student will be taken into account in the final evaluation of the course. This participation will be assessed through cooperative work both in the classroom and outside it and in the preparation and defense of work and problem solving, both with oral presentation.|
|Class Attendance (practical) [ON-SITE]||Practical or hands-on activities||B01 B02 B03 B04 B05 EM13 G03 G09 G10 G13 G14 G15 T01 T02 T03 T04 T05 T06 T07 T08||0.8||20||Y||Y||Practical teaching will be given within periods established in the academic calendar and that do not coincide with other teaching activities. They will be carried out in classrooms and/or laboratories, all of them equipped with the appropriate means to achieve the proposed objectives. In general, the practical activities will consist of oral presentation of topics, resolution of questionnaires or clinical cases, computer simulation of pathophysiological situations, or functional tests. The practical activities are evaluated together with the theoretical ones and are therefore recoverable.|
|Study and Exam Preparation [OFF-SITE]||Self-study||B01 B02 B03 B04 B05 EM13 G03 G09 G10 G13 G14 G15 T01 T02 T03 T04 T05 T06 T07 T08||3.6||90||Y||N||The student may request personal tutoring on the contents of the course by previously arranging an interview with the corresponding professor.|
|Formative Assessment [ON-SITE]||Assessment tests||B03||0.16||4||Y||N||There are 2 partial evaluation tests, the first one being eliminatory. Specific dates have been scheduled in the academic calendar for these evaluation tests. At the end of the theoretical and practical teaching, the student can choose to take only a second partial test, if he/she has passed the first test with at least a mark of 4. If he/she does not pass with at least a 4, he/she may choose to take the ordinary exam of the entire programme.|
|Total credits of in-class work: 2.4||Total class time hours: 60|
|Total credits of out of class work: 3.6||Total hours of out of class work: 90|
As: Assessable training activity Com: Training activity of compulsory overcoming (It will be essential to overcome both continuous and non-continuous assessment).
|Evaluation System||Continuous assessment||Non-continuous evaluation *||Description|
|Final test||0.00%||80.00%||In the case of students who opt for non-continuous evaluation, they will have a single theoretical-practical exam.
Since the practical activities are mandatory and cannot be recovered, the existence of an absence without adequate justification will mean that the student will not be able to pass the course. Students who do not pass this score may opt for another final test (extraordinary exam) whose characteristics and assessment are identical to those of the regular exam.
|Assessment of active participation||20.00%||20.00%||Participation in seminars, workshops and different practical activities and those such as clicker sessions will be given a maximum of 20%. In general, the active role of the student in the theoretical classes, practical activities, as well as other activities of individual or group work, and network activities proposed during the course will be taken into account.|
|Test||70.00%||0.00%||In the continuous evaluation and ordinary call, students may choose to be evaluated by means of 2 partial tests, which are not compulsory. If they have passed the first partial test with more than a 4, they can choose to only take the exam of the remaining contents of the course in a second partial test. If the students do not pass the first partial exam, they can choose to take the entire program in a second partial exam.
The THEORETICAL contents will represent 70% of the total grade.
The PRACTICAL contents will represent 10% of the total grade.
If students do not pass the course by means of partial tests and/or final exam in the ordinary exam, they will be able to take the extraordinary exam.
|Test||10.00%||0.00%||This section refers to the evaluation of the PRACTICAL contents of the course, which will take place on the same day as the THEORETICAL test, and which represent 10% of the total grade.|
