Activities of teaching and learning:
Innovative methods of teaching and learning and visual process of studies are applied in activities. Independent work of a student is oriented towards students. Discussions are proceeded in lectures and seminars in order to avoid monologue speech; laboratory and practical works are reasoned out with group work; the projects are prepared applying case analysis, consequently, problematic and critical contemplation is very important, etc.
Methods of assessment of learning achievements:
Accumulative assessment is applied. Accumulative mark consists of component parts by which certain subjects in a study programme are assessed. Studies in every subject are finished in examination in a written form. The main criterion is reclamation of cumulative knowledge and interpretation of practice. Knowledge that has been mastered in laboratory and practical works are assessed according to work reports, written conclusions and ability to systematize and generalize results. Knowledge of a subject is assessed in ten point system estimating practice, laboratory works and theoretical knowledge separately. The received results in points are multiplied by standing coefficient and then are balanced.
