Výukové metody
The teaching proceeds in the form of lectures and seminars. Lectures are held regularly. The students have to fill self-correcting exercises in the IS during every week in the semester and gain more than 40% points. The seminars take place every second week. Active participation in the seminars is a necessary condition for allowing a student to pass the exam. Students have to study selected readings in preparation for the seminar. Their knowledge can be tested in a form of a brief test during the seminar.
Metody hodnocení
The final written test (on computers) is to be taken during the exam period. Any copying, recording or leaking tests, use of unauthorized tools, aids and communication devices, or other disruptions of objectivity of exams (credit tests) will be considered non-compliance with the conditions for course completion as well as a severe violation of the study rules. Consequently, the teacher will finish the exam (credit test) by awarding grade "F" in the Information System, and the Dean will initiate disciplinary proceedings that may result in study termination.
