The teaching of the subject takes place in the framework of lectures and laboratory practice. The lectures basically introduce the students to the information determined by the knowledge competence elements using the technique of frontal education. The application and skill-level acquisition of knowledge take place in laboratory exercises, where an issued project work has to be solved in groups, which also develops teamwork skills. The project work must be presented at the end of the semester, and a report must be prepared.

Validity of the course description
|Start of validity:||2022. January 1.|
|End of validity:||2024. December 31.|
The knowledge of students is evaluated on the basis of two written mid-terms as summary performance measurements, as well as a partial performance measurement. The summative assessment is a complex, written way of assessing the knowledge and ability type competence elements of the subject in the form of a written mid-term that requires the necessary lexical knowledge during the performance assessment. The working time is 60 minutes. Partial performance assessment (homework): a complex way of evaluating the knowledge, ability, attitude, and autonomy and responsibility type competence elements of the subject, the form of homework prepared in groups.
Detailed description of mid-term assessments
|Mid-term assessment No. 1|
|Purpose, description:||Summative assessments collectively examine and assess the knowledge of students defined by knowledge and ability type competencies. Accordingly, each summative assessment assesses the acquisition of the designated theoretical knowledge as well as the existence of the knowledge and skills acquired in practice. Each summative assessment focuses 65% on theoretical knowledge and 35% on application skills. They will be completed on the date specified in the academic performance assessment plan, expected to be in the 7th and 14th weeks of education. 40 points can be obtained in each of the summative performance evaluations. A minimum of 40% is required for a pass.|
|Mid-term assessment No. 2|
|Type:||formative assessment, project-based, complex|
|Purpose, description:||The basic aim of the partial performance assessment is to examine the existence of attitudes and knowledge belonging to the autonomy and responsibility competence group. The way to do this is to complete a project task that can only be done in groups and then present it in front of the members of the practice group. The assignments for groups of up to 4 people should be finalized by the 6th week of education. The content and format requirements and evaluation principles of the prepared project report are included in the task description. This task will be completed on the date specified in the study performance assessment plan, expected to be between the 7th and 14th week of education. The students can earn up to 20 points with this task.|
