Attending students are required to:
- ensure continuity of classroom attendance, and attend at least one lesson per week throughout the course,
- be present for the whole lesson (except under unforeseen circumstances).

The didactic approach with Non-attending students consists of:
- support for individual study and preparation for final examinations in meetings with the teacher, to be agreed at the request of the student (s), possibly during office hours.

All students (Attending and Non-attending) are required to enroll in the e-learning platform of the course in order to:
- have access to the teaching material that will be made available during the course,
- receive any updates and additional information about the course through your institutional email (@ studenti.univr.it),
- access to the forum, where, in relation to teaching, the following can be posted: 1) general announcements and news by the teacher, and 2) requests for clarification and / or general information by the students.
