Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

We will use as methodologies and strategies: oral presentation (theorical) with or without a visual support; dialog Teacher/ Student causing the reflection and exploitation of concepts; group works (theorical-pratical) based on the theme previously defined and tutorial guidance; Theme presentation in the class followed by a final debate for the development of ideas and sources of knowledge; Reflexive Individual Synthesis of each presented group work. The test, that represents 50% of the final classification, has as main goal which is to differ the results of each student. The group work, equivalent to 50% of the final classification, besides making the students study deeply a given theme together promotes also the cooperation among them.
