Methodologies Description
Introductory activities This first part corresponds to the presentation of the subject: activities that will be develop along the course, material that will be needed and to specify the deliverables that the students will have to present along the course. The evaluation system to be followed will also be presented. The active participation of the students will be encouraged, basically aimed at clarifying all the doubts related to the approach and development of the subject. The tutoring schedule will be presented: Tuesday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h, Wednesday from 12:00 h. to 14:00 h. and Thursday from 11:00 h to 14:00 h. However, it will be that the student can contact the teacher to clarify doubts at all times, preferably in person, individually or in a group. The hours of tutoring may vary on time when the teacher has other teaching, research or management duties to attend. Also in case the student is unable to adjust to that schedule, it will be possible to arrange tutorial meetings outside the same.
Lecturing The active participation of the students in the classes will be encouraged, encouraging the discussion and approach of small questions to be solved in class. The student can contact at all times with the teacher to clarify doubts, in person, individually or in a group. If the doubts require a greater personal attention will be agreed a tutorial to solve problems. Tutoring hours: Tuesday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h, Wednesday from 11:00 h h to 14:00 and Thursday from 12:00 h to 14:00 h. This schedule may vary on time when the teacher has other teaching, research or management duties to attend. Likewise in case that the student is impossible to adjust to that schedule, it will be possible to agree meetings of tutorials outside the same one.
Laboratory practical The practical exercises presented in the three laboratory sessions will be solved in the same classroom, in order to resolve the doubts gradually as they arise as the work progresses in the complexity of the exercises. The active participation of students will be encouraged. Each practice will have a deliverable for evaluation. Once completed, the student can contact at all times with the teacher to clarify doubts, preferably in person, individually or in a group. If the doubts require a greater personal attention will be agreed a tutorial to solve problems. Tutoring hours: Tuesday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h, Wednesday from 11:00 h to 14:00 h and Thursday from 12:00 h to 14:00 h. This schedule may vary on time when the teacher has other teaching, research or management duties to attend. Also in case the student is unable to adjust to that schedule, it will be possible to arrange tutorial meetings outside the same.
Studies excursion A Oceanography Survey will be acrried out in the B/O Mytilus, in groups of 5-6 students, where they will put in practique the methodology involve into Geological Oceanographyc cruisse. Some of the data collected on board will be worked out in practical sessions. After the activity, each group of student have to produce a cruisse report, that will be evaluated. This will include: description of the methodology achieve and collected data.
Mentored work In groups of two or three people, students will choose a current publication that shows an applied practical work of any of the equipment and methodologies that are included in the assignment. They will have to make an exhibition of the same before their colleagues and present a written paper with an article format. Students willing so could attend personal tutorials to solve doubts and/or uncertainties, which will mainly take place during the timetables indicated. To better optimise the procedure, the student is requested to previously contact his/her teacher with reasonable anticipation. Tutoring schedule: Tuesday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h, Wednesday from 11:00 h to 14:00 h and Thursday from 12:00 h to 02:00 h. This schedule may vary on time when the teacher has other teaching, research and/or management duties to attend.
Seminars The practical exercises presented in the different seminars will be solved in the same classroom, in order to resolve the doubts gradually as they arise as the work progresses in the complexity of the exercises. The active participation of students will be encouraged. Once completed, the student can contact at all times with the teacher to clarify doubts, preferably in person, individually or in a group. If the doubts require a greater personal attention will be agreed a tutorial to solve problems. Tutoring hours: Tuesday from 13:00 h to 14:00 h, Wednesday from 11:00 h to 14:00 h and Thursday from 12:00 h to 14:00 h. This schedule may vary on time when the teacher has other teaching, research or management duties to attend.
