|(*)The information in the planning table is for guidance only and does not take into account the heterogeneity of the students.|
|Problem solving, classroom exercises||The first two units will have three face-to-face hours of practice. The third unit will have four hours. The practices will consist of creating bibliographic records and choosing the access points and control of the form of the headings.|
|Practicals using information and communication technologies (ICTs) in computer rooms||There will be practical sessions in the computer lab for searches in catalogs of authorities that allow the student to observe the connection between the bibliographic catalog and the catalog of authorities and assess the consistency of the standardization of the access points.|
|Field work/trips||The technical process units of the university library and the public library might be visited to observe how the tasks of control of the access points are carried out.|
|Tutorship of group||At least 5 hours will be devoted to attending students in groups. The hours dedicated to this purpose will be divided into ten half-hour tutorials. Attendance to these tutorials will serve to guide the student in the learning tasks and monitor the proposed tasks. Apart from these hours, the personalized attention that each student requires will be carried out at the time established for this purpose in person and, likewise, through the forums and email.|
|Other methodologies||In addition to the 30 hours of face-to-face teaching, there will be 30 hours for teacher-student interaction through the Moodle platform (forums, chats, etc.)|
|Lecture||Each one of the three didactic units will begin with a theoretical master class of one hour. The first two modules will have two hours of presentations. In these theoretical sessions developed in the classroom, the fundamental contents of the units will be exposed. Students will have the theoretical materials on the platform.|
|Problem solving, classroom exercises||The questionnaires and exercises done by the students will be evaluated as part of the percentage of the continuous evaluation.||35%|
|Practicals using information and communication technologies (ICTs) in computer rooms||The results of the practices consulting bibliographic catalogs and catalogs of authorities will be evaluated.||10%|
|Tutorship of group||Participation and support to classmates in solving problems in group and virtual classes and in the forums will be considered.||5%|
|Mixed tests||The final exam, including theory and practice, will be evaluated.||50%|
|Other comments and second call|
To pass the course, it is an essential requirement to pass both the continuous evaluation and the final exam.
In the case of the second call, only the final exam will be graded and it will also be necessary to pass the theory and practice.
Final exam: Check dates and times at the website of the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters: http://www.filosofiayletras.unileon.es/
