Academic organisation

Teaching units

The teaching staff continuously monitors the progress students are making on the course. This is achieved by means of basic texts around which theoretical learning is based, together with activities aimed at achieving the skills required in each of the subjects on the Master’s Degree. Digitalised texts are made available to students and multimedia teaching materials are used, such as photos, Power Point presentations and video recordings.

Forums and chats

Interaction among students and between students and teaching staff takes place in forums, which are used as a common space for debate and where messages and files can be exchanged. Along with forums, chats enable students to communicate with each other in real time. Both tools complement each other (i.e. meetings or chat sessions can be arranged through the forum or the notice board). Each subject will establish the rules for the use of forums and chats according to the type of training and the activities scheduled.

Tutorials

Tutorials facilitate direct, personalised and private communications between lecturers and students. Tutorials are instrumental in clarifying assignments and in offering suggestions on how students should proceed to successfully complete the course.

Face-to-face sessions

Each subject is presented in a face-to-face session, during which the lecturers introduce the subjects they are to teach and discuss the main aspects related to the reading matter, methodology, assignments and assessments. Attendance at these sessions is optional, since they are recorded and broadcast oin the Virtual Campus. The broadcasts are subsequently made available for download by those students who were unable to attend the sessions or watch the live broadcast. However, students who do not attend these sessions are required to carry out an alternative activity, which will be set by the teaching staff. The main aim of such achieves is to ensure that students attain the goals set for the session they have missed. Students will be expected to spend the same amount of time completing this activity as they would spent attending the face-to-face session.

Although this is an online Master's Degree, the minimum number of face-to-face sessions required of any training programme is catered for. There will be six face-to-face sessions in the 2008-2009 academic year,  the distribution of which is posted under the Course tuition period/timetables section.

Lectures            

An introductory face-to-face session will be devoted to each thematic module. In these sessions, lecturers will introduce the subjects they are to teach and will discuss the main aspects related to reading matter, methodology, assignments and assessments. Attendance is optional since these lecturers will be filmed and shown on the Virtual Campus, where students will be able to watch them.

Final assignment

Students will be required to write a project. Students must demonstrate their understanding of the theoretical contents of the Master’s Degree and design an equal opportunities action plan.

Assessment

Students will be subject to continuous assessment on the basis of their course assignments and their participation in the online activities on the Virtual Campus.
