Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

The strategies and resources to be mobilized are connected among themselves and are going to reach different cognitive domains, namely: a) the student knows the concepts of Applied Antr. by bibliographic abstracts to be carried out autonomously and by Seminars offered (30 % ); b) analyses/debates/points out the cultural interactions of the subjects of a community through exemplary cases (20 % ); c) builds grids of participant observation and immerses in the community's reality using techniques of an ethnographic nature to record the observations; (d) critically evaluate the information collected in the perspective of the Applied Antr., and draws, in group, projects of socio-educational intervention consistent with the identified challenges (c+d= 50 % ).
