Výukové metody
Classes in the full-time study form will be held on the basis of interactive sessions, in which the theory will be supplemented by practical examples, analyzing and interpreting scientific articles from foreign periodicals, as well as an emphasis on the presentation of results of business cases. Students will not only learn a foreign language and technical terminology, but also demonstrate the ability of its use. The lessons will have a lecturing part (theory, new knowledge including practical examples) and a practical part. That will be focused either on reading economical/business articles and their brief interpretation to ensure understanding the expert text, it’s interpretation and possibly to defend the standpoint, or part of the lessons may be also designed as a preparation of the team presentation project, and then on presentation of teams.
Teaching in part-time study form will be held as guided consultations, where the previous reading is expected. A truncated presentation of the topic will be followed by the interactive discussion and consultation of the studied topics. In both full and part-time study forms each topic will be mostly presented (in detailed or condensed form – according to the type of study) in PPT presentations, followed by an interactive discussion.
Teaching in the distance form of study will be realized in the form of tutorials, continuous consultation and control of the fulfillment of ongoing tasks, tests.
