Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course uses teaching methods in form of individual consultation. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The examination is oral with a period of 30 minutes for preparation. There is examinated and evaluated the knowledge of theoretical as well as practical methods of study structure and properties of inorganic materials and orientation in contemporary trends.
