Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Practical classes with individual accompaniment that seek to strengthen capabilities in the area of product design individually and in groups.
Execution of exercises simultaneously, using the theory discussed, technological tools appropriate to each phase of work and workshops. Knowledge sharing, presentation of reference examples and debate on thought, functionality, society, communication, sustainability, among other fundamental aspects of the project.
The evaluation is continuous and reflects the quality, balance, adequacy, coherence and consistency of the project, as well as the commitment, attendance and punctuality of the student. In each delivery the evaluation corresponds to the total performance up to the respective phase and not only to the material delivered.
All deliveries are mandatory on the set date. Failure of any delivery is eliminatory.
Evaluation P1 (45%), Evaluation P2 (45%), Continuous Evaluation (10%).
UC without exam or possibility of improvement.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
