Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria 1. Lecturing is coherent with the proposed objectives as it allows conveying to the students the theoretical subjects and concepts of the Internet and its communication services;
2. Supervised group and individual work serves the goals as it allows independent study, oriented research, intragroup discussion, and the resolution of exercise sheets contributes to the domain of the desired skills;
3. Peer learning is consistent with the goals and achieved through the debate intra and extra group, facilitating the comprehension of the paradigm’s concepts and allowing the students to acquire knowledge of new areas for networking and the Internet.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
