Overall objectives:

1 - Transmit knowledge and provide learning and experimentation within the different processes and in the various phases inherent in it.
2 - Provide the learning of technical processes, especially the most basic of graphic reproduction, with due regard to conceptual and technological needs.
3 - Develop the spirit of participation and research for conscious and up-to-date experimentation.

Assesssment methods and criteria:

Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)

Evaluation Methodology:
Exposition of the theoretical contents through the visualization of some exemplifying material on the subject under study. - Provide the expected elementary knowledge, complemented with theoretical and theoretical-practical information. - Ask for the experimentation and practice of some exercises, to better capture and learn the knowledge and subject matter provided in the contents. - Bibliographic recommendations or other appropriate consultations, as a complement to the learning and enrichment of the knowledge about the subjects under study. The final evaluation for this course will result from the sum of the different moments of evaluation carried out either through periodic evaluations or through continuous assessment, which will be based on a gradual monitoring of the student's work. - Periodic evaluation 85% - Continuous evaluation 15% - At the time of appeal, 85% of the evaluation can be recovered.
