Methodology

Master classes
These will be done with all the students. They have the purpose of giving an overview of the educational contents related to the specific knowledge of the course, highlighting those aspects that are related to the acquisition of competences, referring to the basic and applied nutrition

Seminars
The seminars will be held in the classroom and must be carried out in the group that corresponds to each student. They will consist of solving cases of practical cases, searching for information, analysis and discussion, complementing the contents developed in the master classes. The participation and discussion of the students will be stimulated.

Tutorials
These will be done in groups of 5-10 students and must be done in the assigned group. It will aim to guide learning avoiding dispersal, clarifying doubts and establishing a conceptual diagram of the course.

Activities in the computer room
There will be a computer classroom session, in groups of 15-20 students, for the acquisition of knowledge about the use of nutrition databases that will facilitate the search of information.

Laboratory practices
Laboratory practices are mandatory, will be carried out in groups of 3-4 students and will take place in the laboratories of the Department of Food Technology.

It is MANDATORY that students carry in the course of teaching practices:
• UdL white labcoat
It can be purchased at the ÚDELS Store of the UdL
Centre de Cultures i Cooperació Transfronterera – Campus Cappont
Carrer de Jaume II, 67 baixos
25001 Lleida
http://www.publicacions.udl.cat/

Directed works

A directed work will be carried out, in groups of 2-3 students. The work will be done on a topic that will previously be chosen from a list provided by the teacher. Each group will submit a written document and will make a brief oral presentation in the classroom and will have to attend the tutorials corresponding to the follow up.

Evaluation

The assessment will consist of the weighted average of 5 grades, obtained from the following elements:

Lectures (50%)

There will be 3 partial exams of the theoretical part, with multiple choice and short-answer questions.
• Exam I: 20%
• Exam II: 15%
• Exam III: 15%
The average of the qualifications of the exams I, II and III must be higher than 5 to do the average with the rest of qualifications. If the student doesn't pass one of the exams  (<5), the person has to retake it in a second call. On the other hand, the student may raise the grade by retaking the exams in the second call. This type of assessment will represent 50% of the final mark and will have to be overcome to do the average with the rest of activities, seminars, practices and work.

Activities proposed in the seminars (30%)
The mark will be calculated based on the arithmetic average obtained from the qualifications obtained by the student in the different activities proposed in the seminars.

Directed works (15%)
A group work will be evaluated. The topic and the guidelines will be facilitated by the teacher. 10% of the mark of the work will correspond to the evaluation of the report presented by the group. A 5% of the final mark comes from the oral presentation of the work.

Practices (5%)
They will be carried out in groups of 3-4 students and will take place in the facilities of the Department of Food Technology. The active participation in the sessions and the delivery of a small group report will be valued.

The student who wishes to do so will be entitled to the single assessment through an exam where the different face-to-face activities (theoretical classes and seminars) will be evaluated. However, it will be an indispensable requirement, the attendance to practices in the established dates and the delivery of the work of the subject.
