FCH-MCO_NANAcad. year: 2017/2018
First, the students are introduced into nanotechnology within 3 lessons. Then, they choose an offered topic that can be found in another part “Osnova” and prepare presentation for 15 min. Finally, every student presents the chosen topic, answers all questions during a discussion with teacher and other students. The student discusses the topics presented by other students.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students acquire basic knowledge about nanotechnologies, characterization and application of nanostructured materials.
Basic chemistry and physics.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course uses teaching methods in form of Lecture - 2 teaching hours per week. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The rating is based on quality of presentation, answering the questions, and activity in discussion about other topics.
