Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Carrying out group work:
An effective way for students to delve deeper into a specific topic or issue is through group work. In the first classes, the class is divided into groups, each group is asked to decide on a topic or issue that they wish to analyze. During the course of the semester, each of the elements of the project will be reviewed by the teacher who suggests areas for improvement for more detailed study. Having reached the minimum quality and achieved the intermediate objectives, students advance to the next phase of group work development.
Students can use the digital bases available at the University
At the end of the semester, each group must present their study project in class to the entire class.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
