Teaching methods
This course is taught in the form of seminars.
Assessment methods
This course is completed with an exam - both written and oral.
Students can take an oral part of the exam provided the following requirements are fulfilled:
- 80% active participation in seminars (systematic continuous preparation and fulfilling assigned tasks)
- 60 % success rate in the final exam test
- elaborating a seminar paper (an essay written up according to an instructor’s guidelines and handed in by a deadline set by an instructor).
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.
