|Prerequisites:||not Theories of Regional Development in English|
|Aims of the course:|
|Students will get acquainted with the main methodological ways in regional development including the most important economic theories. The attention will be paid to the detailed description of the most important theories of regional development, which have been formulated so far. In the following period, the focus will be paid to the common principles of region origin as same as regionalisation (both at national and on international level).
The knowledge is very important for orientation in methods and approaches used in the regional development, because they are usually starting points for formulation of the concepts of the regional policy. The students will be able to identify and apply the main factors and principles of the regional development and use this knowledge during development of the concrete regions. The skills are applicable in large scale of issues of development from environment up to economic analysis.

|Final evaluation is based on the two parts: (1) RESULTS OF TWO SEMINARS PAPERS, (2) RESULTS OF THE WRITTEN EXAMS|
(1) RESULTS OF TWO SEMINAR PAPERS: (a) analyse of scientific literature and other information sources on the given issue for the given area, (b) spatial analyse of data, its cartographic visualisation and brief narrative interpretation of the results. Maximum of points for each seminar paper is 10 points. The students have to receive minimum 10 points from two seminars papers in total (50 % ). At the same time the students have to get minimum 2 points from each seminar paper. If students meet these two conditions they will be allowed to participate at the written exams.
(2) RESULTS OF THE WRITTEN EXAMS. Maximum number of points from written exams is 80. To be successful, it is necessary to obtain minimum 60 %, it means 48 points. The written exams have two parts: (a) theories of regional development - maximum number of points is 50, (b) selected examples of regionalisation for the different hierarchical levels (e.g. NUTS 1, 2 a 3 for EU, LAU 1 for the Czech Republic) tested by means of the selected blank maps - maximum number of points is 30. There is second condition to be successful at the written exams -- it is necessary to obtain minimum 50 % of points in both parts. It means if a student has less than 25 points from the first part or if he/she has less than 15 from the second part, the result of the written exam is F.
If the student obtains from the written exams 48 and more points in total and if he/she obtains from both parts of written exams minimum 50 %, the final evaluation is based on summation of points from two seminars papers and from written exams. The intervals of the results are then the following:
A 90, 1-100 points
B 82,1-90 points
C 74,1-82 points
D 66,1-74 points
E 58,0-66 points
