RULES AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES CORRESPONDING TO THE PRESENT STATUS OF ALARM AND TO THE COMPULSORY DOMICILIARY CONFINEMENT (PANDEMIC COVID-19)

The exam planned for the subject of Time and Knowledge Management will be carried out online, through the Moodle platform. It will consist of 5 questions that must be answered independently, sequentially, and in a limited time.

 

Of the 5 questions, 4 of them will consist of a practical exercise related to the questions that have been addressed in class, relating, for example, to the use of reliable sources of information, use of public and private databases, location of texts regulations, jurisprudence etc.

 

One last question, of a more reflective nature and personal exposition, will be related to the key aspects addressed in the part of the subject dedicated to time management.

 

The answers to the questions must be done individually, and for this the online resources that we have used during the classes can be used.
