Content

Security models: Theoretical framework

This first block will explain the different existing safety models, highlighting the difference between preventive models and reactive safety models.

Security models: Practical experiences

This second block will analyze different security actions and operations where different perspectives of intervention have been applied depending on the security model used.

Methodology

The methodology of this subject will be based on a dynamic and participatory model. Students must study the topics through the mandatory reading of the materials that will be offered, they must participate in the written discussion forums, and they must connect or watch the different lectures that the teacher will give.
 
Students must provide reflections and comments to the texts of mandatory reading as well as investigate jurisprudence, news,  readings or legislation that the teacher asks in the discussion forums.
 
 
 

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.

1. Evaluation of the topics worked on in the classroom and continuous evaluation

Exercises and problems: delivery of the exercises, assignments and problems that arise in class.

The mark of these tests, exercises and practices is equivalent to 50% of the subject.

The mark of these exercises (5 points (maximum mark) with respect to the final mark of the subject) will be added to the average obtained of the individual theoretical tests as long as these have been passed in the conditions specified in the next section *.

2. Individual theoretical tests

Exam: individual tests, written or oral, that allow valuing the knowledge acquired by the student.

4. Review:

At the time of completion of each evaluation activity, the teacher will inform the students of the mechanisms for reviewing the grades.


5. Other considerations:

* Without prejudice to other disciplinary measures deemed appropriate, and in accordance with current academic regulations, "in the event that the student commits any irregularity that may lead to a significant variation in the qualification of an act of assessment, this assessment act will be graded with a 0, regardless of the disciplinary process that may be instructed, in the event of several irregularities in the assessment acts of the same subject, the final grade of this subject will be 0 ".

* If there are circumstances that prevent the normal development of the subject, teachers may modify both the methodology and the evaluation of the subject.
