Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

Classes are organised with theoretical moments and text analysis and discussions and on moments of individual and group work from students. In each class students have access to theoretical synthesis made by the teacher and then discussed with students, from texts or other materials relevant for the class. Students are then invited to debate, discuss, and reflect on proposals, on movies related to the field area, and with group work in each class. In this sense all groups have contact with all programmatic themes. These group works and individual reflections are then part of the evaluation process of acquired competences by students.
