Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria At the end of the CU students should be able to design, develop and present a didactic tool for Chemistry teaching, using ICT resources. So the CU will be based on presentation and explanation of scientific concepts by the teacher, and his/her orientation in the following activities:
¬ searching the literature in scientific and institutional databases;
¬ analysis and group discussion of selected themes;
¬ development of educational resources, based on ICT, for actual implementation.
¬Whenever possible, participation in congresses / scientific meetings with papers and communications prepared during the classes of this CU.
Face-to-face and online tutorials are also part of the strategic methodology. Assessment methods and criteria: Development of a didactic tool for implementation in Chemistry learning/teaching context using ICT (8 points ¬ 40%). Presentation and defense of the proposed work (6 points ¬ 30%). Participation in the activities of the discipline (6 points ¬ 30%).
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
