Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classes of this course unit are theoretical and practical. As a rule, the presentation of the theoretical concepts is followed by practical cases in order to demonstrate its application within specific contexts and especially the Portuguese case . In order to achieve a greater learning success within each of the contents, the students are encouraged to discuss national and European experiences. During classes we seek to involve all students in discussion with the aim of stimulating critical analysis of the theoretical and practical implications thereof.
The assessment of this course is taken during the semester through a written individual work, with a weighting of 40% and a group work on a chosen by the students with a weighting of 60% subject.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
