Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The programmed content is adjusted to the objectives in the assumption that it is intended to give students an up-to-date and critical perspective on cyberculture and the different theoretical positions on the same theme. The programmatic contents provided allow a transversal and historical view of the phenomenon, as well as the analysis of the contemporary national and international situation and the main themes and problems associated with it.

Teaching methodologies

The classes will be divided into two contiguous sections, a first one with an expository nature in which the concepts proposed in the programmatic contents will be presented and a second one, which proposes, from the reading of texts or analysis of practical cases related to the concepts presented above, the debate About these issues.

Demonstration of the teaching methodologies coherence with the curricular unit's intended learning outcomes

It is considered that expository methodology followed by student participation in the analysis of documents and practical cases, always guided by the teacher, will contribute to the development of the competencies identified in the objectives. The student will have the opportunity to know theoretical thinking about the topics under analysis and deepen their understanding by identifying and questions and obtaining answers and by observing their application in concrete cases.

Assessment methodologies and evidences

1. A group work (oral and written presentation) [60%]
Critical analysis of a text selected by students from a list previously provided by the teacher.

2. Evaluation test [40%]

A specific evaluation document will be distributed to the students, explaining the rules of preparation and delivery times for each element of evaluation.

Attendance system

Participation of regular students
It is expected that each student: (a) is present in 75% of classes and participate in the discussion of the issues under review as well as in group work; (B) read, analyze and be prepared to discuss the presented handouts; (C) run scheduled jobs.
Participation of working students
Each case must be negotiated with the teacher during the first 15 days after the start of classes.
