Metodi didattici

Traditional lectures, practical activities, and seminars by experts.

As regards practical activities, each student will work in small-size groups on two different topics assigned by teacher (one topic for each subject matter) and will present the work in classroom through a PowerPoint presentation. These two presentations will not receive any score.

Students will have the opportunity to wear actigraphy devices.
