Subject planning could be modified due unforeseen circumstances (group performance, availability of resources, changes to academic calendar etc.) and should not, therefore, be considered to be definitive.
TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGIES AND ACTIVITIES:
Teaching and learning methodologies and activities applied:
The master class will be used mainly for the transmission of contents in a time occupied mainly by oral presentation and ICT support. Each of the topics will be exposed in a synthetic way, so that the student must delve into the different subjects to through the bibliographic search and the resolution of practical cases individually or in groups. During master class, the teacher may require student participation. Summaries will be made, diagrams of what exposed in each session and will be oriented towards autonomous learning and the best way to overcome the different activities proposed throughout the course. The explanations will be complemented with a short projection (about 5 minutes) of audiovisuals that can visually contribute aspects of interest.
Throughout the sessions, communication between teacher and students will be present at all times; Multiple questions will be posed to the students, who must be participatory and
professor will solve all those doubts that arise in situ.
Practical cases and problems.
The contents of the subject must be able to be applied to specific cases through problems. The student will be provided with a set of problems and cases to solve.
Part of these cases will be solved in class to provide the student with the basic tools applied to population genetics
The rest will be proposed in the PDU and the student will have one week to deliver the resolution. These cases will also be corrected in class so that students can see if they have made a mistake at any point.The tasks will include research proposals and search for information complementary to that taught in class.
A continuous evaluation will be carried out throughout the course, combining the problems to be solved in class and the problems proposed through the PDU as individual work.
During these sessions, the student will be able to ask the professors, both in person and through the university teaching platform, all those doubts that could not be answered.
solved during the theoretical classes. Likewise, during this time the student may request a specific extension bibliography on a specific topic and / or any other type of
information related to the subject.
