Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

We consider as fundamental the development of a teaching/learning process based on student's autonomy of research, in cooperative work and in contact with the educational reality. The active and diversified methodologies are designed to provide the student with the ability to take ownership of concepts and analyse significant information, individually and as a group. For such, the student will hold documentary analysis, take part in debates from cases/themes, dialogue critically about theoretical-practical problematic raised and will test his knowledge in due assessment time, obtaining feedback. Evaluation and weighting: Participation: quality of interventions and completion of autonomous work = 20% Written test: assessment of scientific knowledge, critical thinking, correction of the written test and be able to synthesise = 60% Written reflection about a selected social policy = 20%
