Course assessment

Provođenje sveučilišnih anketa o nastavnicima (pristup prema studentima, transparentnost kriterija, motivacija na
izvršavanje aktivnosti, jasnoća izlaganja, i sl.). Provođenje fakultetskih anketa o predmetima (nakon položenog predmeta
samoevaluacija studenata o usvojenim ishodima učenja, te o opterećenosti u usporedbi s ECTS-ima aktivnosti i predmeta
u cjelini).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. identify and describe the differences between general and technical English language based on the chosen specialised texts and topics

2. recognise essential elements (key words) from a complex specialised text and analyse and interpret complex specialised texts

3. define and interpret specialised vocabulary used in texts and use the vocabulary while translating short specialised texts

4. use grammatical structures in both written and spoken communication

5. expand and acquire new communication models and provide a critical review of a specialised topic in both written and oral form

6. give an oral presentation of a specialized topic
