Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The classes tend to be expository classes on the different points of the program, with privilege for the formal exposition of theoretical and practical contents. This didactic is related, among other factors, to the search for effectiveness and efficiency in the transmission and acquisition of knowledge, in critical reflection and in creating conditions for the discussion, sharing and application of concepts and ideas.
After the theoretical exposition, students will prepare a Case Study that will be presented in the classroom.

Assessment criteria
The continuous assessment modality includes two assessment components:
i) Case Study (group work with 3 to 5 elements) [40%]
ii) Written test (2nd week of January) [60%]
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
