Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The syllabus contents covered in this UC allow students to know the different specific approaches of vertical pathways in nature with reference to practice and associated technical gestures, allowing them to build an understanding of concepts and application in different environments and with a differentiated population.

Teaching methodologies

The work of the UC is organized around:
- Lectures (theoretical and practical) / contents of the program by the lecturer (s)
- Classes of analysis of documents, exhibition of materials associated with vertical paths in nature.

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

The articulation between classroom work of an expository nature, as well as the articulated tasks that are carried out in a practical typology and the work accomplished, presented and discussed in class, allows the students to understand the ways of acting in a pedagogical way in different contexts Associated with vertical pathways in nature.
Methodology and evaluation tests

Assessment methodologies and evidences

Continuous evaluation
- Participation - 10%.
- Group work - 30%.
- Individual work - 10%
- Test - 10%.
- Practical assessment - 40%
Final exam: Students who do not obtain a final grade of 9,5 or higher in the continuous assessment regime will be referred for final examination.

Attendance system

Each student is expected to be at least 75% of the practical sessions and to analyze and discuss the proposed tasks and to execute the assessment products in close relation with the UC teachers, except for students with special status
