"Methodology for the drafting of projects (II)" has a theoretical side and a practical side. The theoretical aspect is taught through master classes and through classes where examples and exercises are put together that are solved jointly in the classroom. The practical side of the subject is developed through exercises and work. The exercises involve solving specific situations that can be done in the classroom or outside the classroom. The works are carried out outside the classroom and individually, although in class face doubts are solved and guided towards its resolution.

The subject has a MOODLE page on the Virtual Campus where you will find the materials of the subject, news and indications of the subject and the system for the delivery of work, among other applications.
To access it, you must enter the Virtual Campus of the UAB, whose address is: https://cv.uab.cat/. You must enter with the University Identification Number (NIU) and the passphrase that is provided during the enrollment process.
The Virtual Campus is also the main communication tool for students with the teacher, both at the level of doubts and of communication of possible problems in the development of the subject. When a student wishes to contact a teacher, they will use Moodle classroom messaging preferably using email.
Tutorials with the teaching staff will be arranged by email.

The evaluation is continuous and involves the carrying out of different exams, exercises and works that allow obtaining up to 10 points. Continuous assessment is designed to enhance the student's work methodology and the achievement of the knowledge and competences of the subject. The monitoring of the continuous assessment can not only be translated into an important component of the evaluation of academic performance, but is a fundamental tool that is made available to the student in order to facilitate a work pace and "Rigorous and organized study of your learning process.
The 10 points are obtained from the following works, exercises and exams:
a) Exercise of concepts of emergency planning. (1 point)
It will be necessary to demonstrate that the theory of emergency planning has been assumed from a practical and relational vision. For some concepts, it will be necessary to find and analyze a specific emergency that has happened.
b) Work on risk analysis (2 points)
Real data will be provided so that the student can begin to calculate the internal and external risk analysis of a self-protection plan. It will be necessary to use search and location tools, the civil protection map and integrate theoretical concepts into real and practical cases.
c) Work on the Technical Code of the building where it will be necessary to demonstrate that it has learned to calculate allowances, evacuation steps, fire protection measures and fire resistance of the building materials 3 points.
d) Review
The exam will be done in two days, in the first one it will evaluate the practical part and of calculations and has a value of 2 points. In this exam, paper materials, CTE-SI and class papers or other necessary documents can be carried out.
The second exam will be theoretician with a value of 2 points, with questions of true or false or of choosing a correct answer and also of developing questions about thewhole subject of the subject. No material can be carried in this test.
To be able to add the different scores, it is essential to meet the following conditions:

  • Take a note equivalent to 5 out of 10 in the theoretical exam and in practice. Otherwise, the Final Exam for Semester will be required.
  • Take a note equivalent to 5 out of 10 in different jobs and exercises. Otherwise, it will be necessary to present it again on the day of the Final Exam of Semester.

If you do not pass the subject in accordance with the aforementioned criteria (continuous assessment), you can do a recovery test on the scheduled date in the schedule, and that will cover all the contents of the program.
To participate in the recovery students must have been previously evaluated in a set of activities, the weight of which is equivalent to a minimum of two thirds of the total grade of the subject. However, the qualification that will appear on the student's file is of a maximum of 5-Approved.
Students who need to change an evaluation date must submit the application by filling in the document that will be found in the moodle Tutorització EPSI..
Without prejudice to other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, and in accordance with the current academic regulations, "in the event that the student conducts any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation of the rating of an assessment act , this evaluation act will be evaluated with a 0, regardless of the disciplinary process that can be instructed. In the event that there are several irregularities in the evaluation acts of the same subject, the final grade of this subject will be 0 ".
