Justification of the UE over the year. Justified pedagogical reason
Annual UEs for language courses at Bachelor level: Language learning is the development of four
skills (listening, reading, writing, and speaking) that are strengthened gradually through
regular and varied learning activities. The Task-based Language Learning (TBLT) approach, which responds to current
educational trends, requires the implementation of a set of learning activities focused on the learner and the integration
of tasks, such as grammar
At Bachelor level, it is essential to have a progressive plan and assessment in place regarding
passive skills (listening and reading) and active skills (speaking and writing). The
second term examinations assess a set of "know-how" that covers everything learnt
throughout the year.
Organising language courses as part of annual UEs is fully justified, given
the diversity of language levels at the beginning of the university course.

Annual UE ?Tutoring Groups? (BLOCK 1 SHS)
This tutoring activity runs throughout the year and aims to encourage B1 students to be more academically involved by taking part in communication activities. These activities are tutored by students who are further ahead in their studies of the same curriculum. B1 students are required to do two written assignments to demonstrate the evolution of their abilities, one in December and the other in April-May. The comments on the December presentation and written work are re-evaluated during the second presentation and written assignment, justifying the fact that the students receive a single overall grade for the whole course, and not a different grade for each semester.

Annual UE "UH-B1-SCHUMS-005-M - Political Economy": The UE aims to acquire students registered for the first time
on a Bachelor"s course, the basic notions of the core subject of the curriculum not addressed in secondary school and
difficult to teach in one semester.

Annual UE "UH-B3-SCHUMS-006-M - Research Methodology": The UE comprises 10 ECTS, reflecting a volume of
subjects that are difficult to cover in a single term for undergraduate students. Additionally, the Learning
Activities in this Educational Component are linked to the end-of-cycle project; they both aim to provide the
tools necessary to carry out this project (research methods, epistemology, written communication). Students" projects
serve as applications for the various learning activities included in this UE.

Annual UE "Practise of journalism": This UE brings together journalism-related learning activities,
which includes a large volume of practical work in written and oral media. Students registered on this course
collaborate with the publications editorial board of the University of Mons by providing written contributions,
as well as with the University"s radio station, YouFM. The preparation time required for the practical work of this UE makes it difficult
to teach it all in a single semester.

Annual UE ?Psychopedagogical Approach? (BLOCK 3 SHS)
This theoretical part of this course addresses the concepts of managing small groups, while the practical part requires B3 students to become tutors, managing small groups of B1 students throughout the academic year (from October to May). These student tutors are supervised and are required to write reports, integrating theoretical concepts and a personal analysis of their own practice. After the first semester, in early February, the student tutors in each group have an evaluative feedback session on their own practice, which will influence the objectives they set during the tutoring sessions in the second semester, and when writing their reports.
Therefore, the evolution and observation of the student?s practice, as well as the student?s own reflective analysis, are all taken into account for the final evaluation, justifying the fact the students receive a single overall grade for the whole course, and not a different grade for each semester.

Annual UE ?Introduction to Journalistic Information?

The aim of the UE ?Introduction to Journalistic Information? is for students to become familiar with the world of journalism, from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. Students will learn to decipher the ways in which information is produced and processed, and will learn about the main contemporary issues and debates of journalism. They will also be introduced to the basics of journalistic expression and writing. This UE is taught annually because of the time required to carry out exercises and practical work (interviews, articles, portraits, etc.). The practical activities of this course cannot be completed in one single semester. In addition, some of the exercises depend directly on the theoretical subject. As such, it is more appropriate to teach this UE annually and give a final overall grade for the course.

Annual UE ?Exercises in the History of Political Thought?

To cover all of its learning activities, this UE must be spread over both semesters. These include choosing a book by a political thinker, assimilating and applying methodological instructions, completing a written assignment requiring several weeks of work in the first semester, and giving an oral presentation of this work in seminars spread over several weeks in the second semester. One semester would be too short to cover all the learning activities, and reducing the timing would make it impossible to achieve the educational objectives set.

Annual UE "UH-B3-SCHUMS-002-M - Questions of Sociology": This course consists of both a theoretical part and a "practical"
part. As for the practical aspect of sociology, it is very difficult to do anything other than "work in the field"
(mainly interviews). However, this work in the field requires methodological and conceptual preparation,
which can take place over a long period of time,
and can require a lot of work to be prepared in advance (this, however, could contradict the point of the activity). Spreading this AA over year allows students to fully grasp it.
