Lecturing These sessions will be held in the rooms and dates fixed by the direction of the school. They will consist in an oral explanation by the professor of the most important parts of the course, all related with the materials that the student had to work previously. This is intended to favor the active participation of the students, that will have occasion to rise doubts and questions during the sessions. Active participation is desired during all the sessions.
Problem solving During these sessions, in the classroom, interleaved with the lectures, the professor will proceed to solve examples and/or exercises that properly illustrate the problems to solve. As long as the number of participants in the classroom allows, active participation will be promoted.
Previous studies Previous preparation of the theoretical sessions:
Prior to the start of the theoretical sessions, the students will have available a series of materials that have to prepare, as the sessions will relay on them.

Previous preparation of the laboratory sessions:
It is mandatory that the students make all the assigned previous tasks prior to access the laboratory. These task are intended to greatly improve the laboratory knowledge acquisition.
The achieved report will be taken into account when the laboratory session is to be evaluated.
Autonomous problem solving Self study and review of the theoretical sessions for knowledge consolidation:
The student must study, in a systematic time schedule, after each lecture session, in order to dissipate any doubts. Any doubts or unsolved questions will have to be expose to the professor as soon as possible in order to enhance the feedback of the learning process.
Laboratory practical Laboratory sessions will be held in the time schedule established by the school's head teacher.
Students will work in groups of two students each. The sessions will be supervised by a professor, who will control the assistance and will also evaluate the harnessing of it. During the laboratory sessionsthe students will make activities of the following kinds:
- Assembling electronics circuits
- Use of electronic instrumentation
- Measure of physical variables on circuits
- Do calculations related to the circuit and/or the measurements
- Collect data and represent it (diagrams, charts, tables)
At the end of each laboratory session each group will deliver the corresponding score sheets.
