The teaching methodology differentiates theoretical and practical classes, since both have different objectives. Therefore, three different methods are considered.
- 1. Theoretical classes: master classes, handling of manuals, use of materials related to the subject. In these classes the student will be offered a global vision of the subject, focusing the presentations on the most complex issues and those that involve the greatest difficulty for the students. The aim is to provide the student with a guide so that he or she can carry out the study of all the contents of each topic. These classes are based on outlines and presentations prepared by the teacher and made available to students through the computer platform to support teaching (My Lecture Room), in order to avoid wasting time taking notes, allowing them to devote their attention to the content and discussion of the topic raised.
- 2. Practical classes: both practical exercises and analysis of current economic news and commentaries on economic articles are included, focusing on the analysis of some of the issues raised in the theoretical classes. Exchange of materials (approaches and solutions) through My Classroom. The aim is to familiarize the student with the use of economic concepts and variables, through the analysis of real economic data. The application of the knowledge acquired in the theoretical classes will allow the student to understand various issues in his economic environment.
- 3. Tutorials
a) Presential: individualized attention to each student in relation to issues related to the subject, both from a theoretical and practical point of view, in the place and time designated for it. Through this channel, students can ask questions of a diverse nature: doubts, resolution of issues and practices additional to those carried out in the classroom, expansion of bibliography or material related to aspects dealt with in the classroom.
b) Virtual: the development of computer applications and the generalisation of their use has provided the basis for the creation of computer platforms that are used as support tools for teaching. In this sense, the UPNA has a platform known as "Miaulario". This platform also allows a personalized attention of the student through various tools such as email or forums.
