Teaching methodologies (including evalution)The curricular unit is structured in theoretical, theoretical-practical, PL, TC lessons and tutorial guidance, based on active methodologies with the analysis and discussion of scientific papers, pedagogical materials and teaching proposals in Natural and Social Sciences on the 1st CEB.
In theoretical classes it will be made the concetual framework, always enhancing, throughout the different sessions in the various typologies, the active participation of students with the operationalization in practical activities.
In the PL and TC sessions there will be the possibility of students experimenting the design of structured activities, according to the guidelines for the 1st CEB, in an interdisciplinary perspective.
Students are assessed individually for class participation, presentation and discussion of scientific articles (40%), and for the performance and presentation of a didactic or technological device for Natural and Social Sciences teaching in 1st CEB (60%).
