Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria We use a Project Based Learning method (PBL) to promote active learning, explore real-world problems, seeking a symbiosis between know-what and know-how. The evaluation is continuous and will be based on the student participation in the workshops, development, evolution and presentation of projects, as well as the aesthetic and technical quality of the work.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
