The practical classes divide in two types: computing and problems. In the practices of computing, the student will look for sources of diverse information, of variable complexity, related with the theoretical questions studied. Also it will develop some simple task researcher on concrete appearances commented in class or questions guided on distinct subjects. The first practice will serve to familiarise with the resources of the Virtual Campus through which the professor interacts with him (tutorías, material, debates...)
To his time, the practices of problems will centre in distinct appearances related with the asignatura, always of character generalista: analysis of statistics and of bibliographic material, comment of documentaries, analysis of planes, maps or images...
With regard to the work of field, from a detailed and intense geographic itinerary guided and commented of some place or places of tourist interest, will check in the practice any of the situations studied in the classroom. The student will have to take all type of notes, look for complementary material and realise some work from this.
