Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Theoretical-practical sessions with the realization of written exercises inside and outside the classroom by the students, namely preparation of a synthesis of a text and its presentation. Discussion of the main ideas of the texts of the classes; organization of debates and analysis of case studies. The teacher provides students with materials to prepare classes in advance, in order to improve prior information and facilitate the students' participatory reflection. Preparatory materials represent important learning resources and are available on the moodle platform. The contact sessions include, in balanced doses, the teacher's presentation and discussion with the class. The exhibition is supported by visual supports (powerpoints) or photocopied texts.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
