Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

The set of active strategies to mobilize [role play, self-record and hetero-observation in a professional context, critical and case-oriented analysis], the use of external guests [5 seminars-debates] and the individual feedback to provide to the students (OT) operationalize the learning objectives. The learning assessment will be cumulatively assessed by: a) the quality of participation and constructive dialogue, the assertive and empathic cooperation and communication established in the group in role-playing situations, providing individual feedback to the student (points 1 and 2 = 50%); b) for the accomplishment of individual written work (point 3 = 50%) that consists in the elaboration, by the student, of a critical reflection on an interview to an educational change leader.
