Teaching methodologies (including evalution)

With active methodologies we intend to challenge students, either through group or individual work, to participate proactively in their knowledge construction. So, after brief exposures towards a general thematic awareness, we privilege knowledge mobilization, theoretical research and practical cases observation. In addition, and with the tutorial support, each group studies a problem previously defined and presents it to class. The next item is the debate produced by peers and teacher, for ideas and knowledge construction. This group component has a weighting of 50%. The individual components will focus on the emerging issues of professional practice with a weight of 50%. 50%-group work with oral presentation. 50%-individual work with oral presentation.
