To learn more, read the "Criteria for Accepting and Evaluating Proposals for Initiatives to be Validated as credits others".

Criteria for acceptance and evaluation of proposals for
initiatives to be counted as credits other

When a proposal for an initiative or activity arrives, the committee chairperson:

  1. evaluates the congruence (C) of the proposal with the subjects of the course disciplines (with varying percentage weight):
    - for philosophy, psychology, pedagogy, etc. the weight will be 1
    - for related subjects (literary, etc.) it may range from 0.5 to 0.8
  2. estimate the number of hours (O) for which you will be engaged and whether additional participant work is planned for the proposed activity (e.g., report during class on an external seminar taken). Then remember to specify this and quantify it in number of hours for further engagement (Ou)
  3. communicate to the Coordinator and the whole Commissionthe necessary data for evaluation: title, date(s), time(s) and location(s), congruence (C), number of hours (O), any additional number of hours (Ou), documentation produced by the proposer

The evaluation to be associated with the initiative is calculated by the Coordinator according to this formula:

evaluation = C × (O + Ou) / 25 (rounded to the nearest tenth)

The initiative will be posted by the Coordinator on the course website. You will then be able to participate in the activity and have the specific module signed directly by the lecturer present. When you have collected certificates totaling 1 CFU (or multiples), you will need to ask the committee chair for credit to be registered.

N.B.The rating listed on the website will be the "maximum" enhancement for the activity, but what you will actually be credited will be in relation to the actual number of hours on the module.
