Content

Right to Safety is a subject that offers a general overview of the main legal bases of the administrative State that guarantee, in a transversal way, the Prevention and the Integral Security of the society. Based on administrative law and constitutional law, it is about exposing the role of the different Public Administrations as the main guarantors of the rights of citizens and the struggle to prevent the dangers that surround us. It is necessary to know the legal resources offered by our legal system and the administrative structure that governs us to be able to develop with ease with the new rights and obligations that are born every day and that they try to face the new risks that threaten us. That is why we have to teach to plan the management of prevention in accordance with the legislation and the exorbitant powers of the different public administrations.

It is about giving the subject through the explanation of the teacher but always helped by the participation of the student who will finish closing the description of the concept exposed through their own vision or experience in the particular sector.

Class discussions will be frequent and will continue through discussion forums through the virtual campus.

In any case, the student will have to solve inside and outside the classroom different questions raised during the class or through the virtual platform for which will be helped by legislative and jurisprudential materials.

Methodology

Classes will be based on an interactive methodology in which the teacher will expose the subject matter theory and students for a few minutes, based on these explanations and the previous preparation they have done, discuss specific real situations or of laboratory The discussions will be oral and later written conclusions will be required in order to analyze it individually. Subsequently, one will put in common the key ideas that arise.

The use of the laptop in classrooms will be allowed in most sessions. The teacher will inform when its use is not possible.

The practical classes will correspond to the resolution of assumptions that raise problems of citizen security, environmental, urban planning, etc. The student will have to look up the corresponding documentation to solve the topic under study. It will be necessary to deliver in writing the solutions that it thinks appropriate to the practical case and to motivate their answers, through a critical reflection on the current regulation and on proposals for improvement.

On the other hand, discussions will also be held through discussion forums thanks to the virtual platform.

During the course, an expert will be invited to one of the exhibited subjects, which, through its exhibition, will generate the debate among students.

Tutorials with the teaching staff will be arranged by email

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

Assessment

The theoretical-practical tests are constituted as partial proofs of the syllabus. There will be two. One before the end of the year and another before the end of the semester. Each one of them will consist of half of the subjects. They will be based on the resolution of situations posed by the teacher through test questions that will need to be justified and will allow to assess the knowledge acquired by the student during the sessions in person or through their individual work. Each will have a value of 35% of the final mark and the two must be approved to be able to choose between presenting to the final exam of the subject to raise the note, or not do it.

There will also be other types of tests: group practices. These will focus on the mandatory delivery of exercises and assumptions actually proposed by the teacher which will have to be solved by the students during the session in groups of maximum 4 members. There will be one per topic. Its value will be 30% of the final grade.

In the continuous evaluation, in addition to the previous practical tests, both the participation in class and the activities programmed in the virtual platform will be taken into account.

Final Exam. In the event that the student obtains less than 5 out of 10 in one of the two partial tests, it will be necessary to present a final exam of the subject that will include all the subjects of the course. This individual test will be based on test questions to justify and a practical case on the subjects studied. Likewise, an integral reflection of some aspect of the subject will be required.

1. 20 Test questions with justification (50%)

2. Resolution of a practical case (40%)

(In case the students had attended the practices in the continuous evaluation and they had been approved, the note obtained during the course would be kept and the resolution of this practical case would not be required).

3. Comprehensive reflection (10%)

 

If you do not pass the subjectin 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 EPSI Tutorials moodle.

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 ".

Tests / exams may be written and / or oral at the discretion of the teaching staff.
