Forms of Teaching
At a lecture students and the lecturer discuss the subject for which they have prepared through research and preparatory homework. Posting questions and answers via Audit system students actively contribute to the lecture and their learning. The teacher helps the formation of conclusions, lays out the theoretical basis, provides guidance for the application of new knowledge and give guidelines for further independent learning. If necessary, the teacher explains the homework following the lecture.Seminars and workshops
