Instructional methods Planned classes that are achieved through lectures and exercises. Each lecture is followed by performing exercises where students develop the necessary skills and competencies. Each exercise is completed independently or within a team as part of the homework. Homework covers the entire course material.

Display and evaluation of achievement of students’ tasks is performed through a variety of activities: oral presentation, discussion and presentation.

Exam formats Each student is assigned a final seminar that must be completed by the specified date and presented in a 10-minute lecture. Completing the final seminar and ​​80% of practicum tasks is a condition for the course signature. An element of the course grade is students’ activity during class.

As part of the course, each student will create their own personal web page of the course. The website will publish resolved tasks. This will be a way to monitor and evaluate activity during the semester. Final seminar that is assessed with grade 3 or higher is automatically transferred to adequate course grade, no additional exam needed.

If the student is not satisfied with the grade, he or she may take the written and oral exam. If the student has not met the established criteria he or she must take the written and oral exam together with submitted assignments.

Language Croatian, English
Quality control and successfulness follow up An anonymous survey held after each teaching theme (teacher reflection on amendments to certain segments continue to improve the quality of direct work with students).

Unique University student survey where students assess their satisfaction with the quality of teachers and teaching assistants in each course, and course performance in general (the survey is a good starting point for self- evaluation of teachers and teaching assistants throughout the academic year).
