Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classes tend to be expository classes on the different points of the program, with privilege for the formal exposition of theoretical and practical contents. This didactic is related, among other factors, to the search for effectiveness and efficiency in the transmission and acquisition of knowledge, in critical reflection and in creating conditions for the discussion, sharing and application of concepts and ideas. At the beginning, the syllabus will be approached and several practical examples will be presented; in the final part, students will prepare a Case Study that will be presented in the classroom.
Evaluation criteria
The continuous assessment regime includes two assessment components:
i) Case Study (group work with 3 to 4 elements) - Presentations on 15 December and 3 and 5 January. Delivery by January 5, 2021 [50%]
ii) Written test (2nd week of January - will be scheduled by the course director) [50%]
