Activity Evaluation act


Follow-up of the activity, delivery of certificates, delivery of an activity report, etc. The activities can be any of the activities already published as a seminar of the current academic year. Other activities can also be accepted but is required the approval of the FIB. More information in the brief description of the subject.
Objectives: 1
Guided learning
Autonomous learning

Teaching methodology

The teaching methodologies depend on each activity. In a general way we can say that the teaching methodologies that will be followed can include master classes (talks, long talks), participative lectures, laboratory practices with supervision, work in cooperation with other students with supervision, realization of autonomous works with a tutoring, a individualized tutoring, etc.

Evaluation methodology

The student evaluation of the SIRI seminar, for a specific activity, can be done by the organizer of the activity, a tutor assigned to the student, the coordinator of the specialization or the vice-dean of Postgraduates of FIB. In principle, the student evaluation of the SIRI seminar ECTS, for a specific activity, should be done by the organizers or tutor assigned to the activity. In case that the activity organizer doesn't perform any student evaluation, and there is not tutor assigned, the student evaluation of the activity will be done once the student has uploaded the documentation necessary. In this last case, the coordinator of the specialization or the vice-dean of Postgraduates will do the evaluation.

For the case that the organizer or a tutor do the student evaluation, this evaluation should signed/stamped by the official institution and directly given to the student. Then, the student will have to upload this evaluation documents to the SIRI seminar web at the Racó. In case that the coordinator or vice-dean of postgraduates do the student evaluation, the evaluation will be directly uploaded by the FIB.

In order to do the student evaluation, students may be asked to deliver a portfolio of one or more pages. In our case, this portfolio should contain:
- An abstract of the activity of 150 words maximum,
- The description of the main objectives of the work presented in the activity: talk, seminar, etc.
- A reflection of how the contents of the activity can help or improve the learning process of the student in her/his specialization, and
- At least one bibliography reference to some work related to the target of the talk.
