Teaching methods
Education proceeds as lectures, that are teoretical preparing of students in the framework of discussed issues (according syllabus). This teoretical preparing is applied in tutorials, where students solve praktical examples (problems) from respective problem issues. Students learn to solve choice problems from organization practises and they gain practises skills too.
Assessment methods
Conditions of successful completion of the course: active participation in seminars and successfully passed examination. Any copying, keeping a record of tests or carrying the tests out, using forbidden aids including any communication devices or any other breach of objectivity of the exam is regarded as a failure to meet the obligations of the subject and as a serious breach of study regulations. As a consequence, the teacher grades the student with "F" and the dean is allowed to initiate a disciplinary action, which might lead to the termination of the studies.
