Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The methodology of teaching is:
Verbal - The transmission of the contents of each module is based essentially on exhibition, however, the aim is
also that there is room for Interrogation / Explanation leading the group dialogue.
Active - Execution of individual and group work, including exercises and laboratory experiments. These
modalities are associated with the modules of the course and allow students to take responsibility and socialize.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
