"The aim of the UC of Orientation Seminar is to guide students at the beginning of the academic course to the process of researching and formulating the research questions that will be developed in the course of the various Seminar UCs, until the choice and proposal of the topic of This UC works simultaneously and in collaboration with the UC of Scientific Research Methodologies, which allows to concretize the methodological aspects with a direct application of the same. : 1. To recognize the areas of Information Technology and Information Systems that are currently the most evolved and relevant 2. Have a comprehensive bibliography of scientific articles that allow them to obtain a broad overview of the areas under study 3. Identify some research topics that will deepen and develop over the course of the in the next Seminar CUs
Teaching methodologies and assessment
"Classes: ¿Lectures with concepts, definitions and theoretical framework ¿Sessions with presentations of students in order to stimulate the critical exchange of ideas on prepared topics ¿Sessions of questions and answers on presentations Continuous evaluation: The evaluation corresponds to an arithmetic average of three installments: ¿Participation in room (20%); Writing of a short-paper (2 A4 pages) in the scope / theme defined (50%); Short-paper Blind-review of a colleague (30%) Assessment by Examination: It is intended for students who have not obtained a Continuous Assessment (s) Evaluation of the scope / subject to be investigated (40%) Writing of a short paper ) within the defined scope / theme (60%).
