Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria In this theoretical-practical course unit, expository classes will be used to present the syllabus using audiovisual elements. The presentation of projects considered exemplary, followed by debate, acts as a starting point for the projects and as a principle of research to be developed in the course. The projects of the discipline will be followed up with the students. The discussion and critical evaluation of the results of the work will be done throughout the semester.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
