Methodologies Description
Guest lecture / keynote speech The Masterclass is also known as "lecture", "Expository method" or "Master lesson". This last modality is usually reserved to a special type of lesson taught by a professor on special occasions, with a content that implies an original elaboration and based on the almost exclusive use of the word as a route of transmission of the information to the Audience.

Case study Methodology where the subject faces the description of a specific situation that poses a problem that must be understood, valued and solved by a group of people, through a process of discussion. The student is faced with a specific problem (case), which describes a real situation of the professional life, and should be able to analyze a series of facts, referring to a particular field of knowledge or action, to arrive at a reasoned decision through a discussion in small working groups. In this context, the student will acquire the necessary skill to carry out the evaluation of the geriatric patient with the main used instruments.

Supervised projects Methodology designed to promote the autonomous learning of the students, under the supervision of the teacher and in varied scenarios (academic and professional). It is referred primarily to the learning of "How to". It is an option based on the assumption of students responsibility for their own learning.
This teaching system is based on two basic elements: The independent learning of the students and the follow-up of that learning by the teacher-tutor.

Field trip Activities developed in an external context to the University academic environment (companies, institutions, organizations, monuments, etc.) related to the field of study of the subject. These activities focus on the development of capacities related to direct and systematic observation, the collection of information, the development of products (sketches, designs, etc.), etc. This activity will be carried out in small groups in a center of attention to elderly people.

Multiple-choice questions It will consist of a test-type examination, consisting of 40 questions with four answers each of which only one is correct. Incorrect-answered questions will subtract 0.33 points on the correct ones, not subtracting the unanswered. To overcome the exam the student must obtain a final score of 65% of the total once the points of the missed ones have been subtracted. e.g 30 right, 4 wrong and 6 unanswered. The final score will be 30-4 * 0,33 = 28,68 > 26. Following the table of equivalences the score of the test will be as follows:
Correct 1-5 6-10 11-15 16-20 21-26 27-30 31-35 36-40
Note 0.2-1.0 1.2-1.9 2.1-2.9 3.1-3.8 4-5 5.4-6.4 6.8-8.2 8.6-10
Thus in the section of 1 to 26 correct answers, each correct answer computes 0.19 points and in the section of 27 to 40 correct answers, each one computes 0.36 points.
Subsequently, the test note is weighted at 65% of the total score for the subject. Therefore, if a 10 in the exam involves a 6.5 in the final evaluation, a 7.2 examination note would imply 4.7 points.
