Formative activities with ECTS content, teaching-learning methodology and its relation  the skills, the student must acquire

The formative activities that will take place in the units are product of suitable convenience between teaching  and learning activities. They have been synthetically have collected on the following points, further classified according to whether they generate and individual or group intervention of students:

Classroom presentation of the concepts and procedures associated with the unit using the lecture method (2 ECTS for each Subject).

Classroom Activities monitoring individual or group activities, project work and deployment of them. Include project methodology and case study methodology, that will be developed as a group (1.5 ECTS for each Subject).


Fieldwork (1 ECTS for each Subject).

Tutoring (group or individual) and evaluation (0.5 ECTS for each Subject).
Student Independent Study (1 ECTS for each Subject).
The way the students will be learn actively, with a strong involvement of his part, with daily work, and through monitoring by the teacher for each subject.

The teaching methodology is based on giving the students leading role, so that he builts his own learning. Promoting reflection, seeking information and problem solving gain great relevance, trying at all times to promote autonomous learning.

The units dynamics arises through cooperative learning  highlighting positive interdependence and personal responsibility among members of each group. The projects to be undertaken are varied in each case, and deployed as a whole all training activities. It aims to create an awareness in students through each of them as similar as possible to the professional activity to be developed in the future, in relation to each subject. From the documentation, counseling, monitoring and guiding role that develops faculty groups are intended to function autonomously. In this way it is hoped that students acquire a high level of commitment to their group partners as , thereby enhancing their ability to work and effort.

Pedagogical and educational intervention is orientated so that the students often have to agree, negotiate and work together, so each / a is enriched by the strengths of others daily work is more motivating and gaining in interest to be made of a shared, learning is much more effective when based on "teaching others".

Tracking tasks by teachers loom large sense, sometimes in small groups, others in large group and other individually and this interaction contributes to formative evaluation.



The twelve inits of the module will be assesed with similar procedures.

Skills acquisition by students like knowledge and procedures presentation, formative activities will be assesed through the continuous evaluation system, specifically, valuating the results of the implementation of the following assesing procedures obtained:

The evaluation will be concludee whith a recognition about the learning level obtained by the student, emboried in the numerical grade, in accordance with yhe legislation.

LEARNING RESULTS (potential relizations which can be rreasured or observed):




The case study method will be used, heving to analized a real team of the ASOBAL league season, and making an annual planification for this team.
