### TEACHING METHODS

The teaching takes place with frontal lessons and intends to use innovative learning systems. In particular, the MYLAB platform is used, which allows the student to carry out standard exercises that recur each time with different data and also with error reporting and the related explanation. The platform also allows the teacher to know the percentage of correct answers given by each student, thus monitoring general learning during the course of the programme.

The class material is available on aulaweb.

Students who have valid certification of physical or learning disabilities  and who wish to discuss possible accommodations or other circumstances regarding lectures, coursework and exams, should speak both with the instructor and with Professor Serena Scotto (scotto@economia.unige.it), the Department’s disability liaison.
