Other comments

It is recommended to follow regularly the indications and news of the MOODLE platform, since this platform, together with the face-to-face classes; It constitutes an essential communication system between the teaching team and the students.

Additionally, the next general observations and recommendations are made:

1. The delivery of the outstanding works for this subject will never be printed, and instead of, they should be delivered: 

a. by means of virtual/online procedure

b. through the Moodle platform

2. The ethic principles and values of personal and professional sustainable behaviour should be assumed.

3. Everyone should try to identify and modify sexist pre-judgements trying to avoid them and boosting equalitarian behaviours.

4. The full inclusion of disabled students should be facilitated and promoted. Regardless of the physical, psychologic, sensorial or socio-cultural reasons, discrimination must be avoided for all the university community and helping to achieve equalitarian university environments.

It is convenient to have basic knowledge of sociology, economics, and law. In particular, the role of transnational organizations (World Bank, United Nations, European Union) must be known. Likewise, there is necessary basic mathematics and applied statistics knowledge to the correct interpretation, calculation as well as management of databases and indicators. It is recommended to have a medium-high level of English for adequate access to information sources. Likewise, an adequate level of use of ICTs is required.
