1. MODIFICATIONS TO THE CONTENTS
Teaching methodologies that are kept
• Online (Moodle) activities and “supervised project”.
Teaching methodologies that are modified
• In an on-line teaching scenario, the “seminars” and “document analysis” (close reading and critical analysis of texts) will be carried out via Moodle assignments and/or discussion forums.
• Oral presentations may be replaced by recorded presentations.
3. TUTORIALS AND PERSONALIZED ATTENTION
• MOODLE TUTORIAL FORUMS, initiated by students and checked on a weekly basis.
• E-MAIL (especially for individual queries and doubts), on a weekly basis.
While the distribution of percentages will not change, the different assessment methods will have to be adapted to the new circumstances, as follows:
• 40% - course work carried out via Moodle assignments and/or discussion forums
• 60% - Final essay / project: the oral presentation may be replaced by recorded presentations.
SECOND OPPORTUNITY (JULY): Those students who have not reached 4 out of 10 points in each of the main assessment sections, even if the overall addition is 5 or higher, will have to use the second opportunity (July). In an on-line scenario, it will comprise two parts: the final essay/project (60%) including an oral presentation which may be recorded; a written exam (40%, replacing course work) to be carried via Moodle on the official date of the exam; should there be (serious, certifiable) connectivity problems, the exam will be done orally (phone call).
5. Changes in bibliography/webgraphy
- More on-line resources: short primary sources will be available in Moodle; as to secondary sources, there will be extra on-line resources (e.g. PDF excerpts, the teacher’s own materials, links to on-line library resources…).
