Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The uc is taught using the discussion of texts previously read by students; viewing of the films nominated for the EUFA and follow-up sessions of the work in article form. The evaluation consists of two elements: 1) presentation and argumentation in favor of a film being awarded by the UEFA 2) writing of an article that exercises the "filmmakers on film" approach. The first element is individual and the second is individual or co-authored.
