The TecnoCampus will make available to teachers and students the digital tools needed to carry out the course, as well as guides and recommendations that facilitate adaptation to the non-contact mode.
The classroom (physical or virtual) is a safe space, free of sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic and discriminatory attitudes, either towards students or teachers. We trust that together we can create a safe space where we can make mistakes and learn without having to suffer the prejudices of others.
The teaching methodology of the subject is divided into two parts: face-to-face / online sessions, and independent work.
In the face-to-face sessions the teachers will teach the theory, interspersing practical examples that will facilitate the learning of the knowledge explained and will help the student in the resolution of exercises and practical activities.
In addition, the student will have to work autonomously both to delve into the theoretical and practical concepts seen in class and to do group work.
The activities to be carried out by the student during the course are of various natures in accordance with what is specified in the methodology described.
In this sense and with the aim of covering the proposed goals, face-to-face activities will be carried out as well as in the virtual classroom. In addition, individual and group activities will be carried out.
