Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The production of media content in this area allows the student to have a theoretical reflection on the subject as well as to learn techniques of journalistic construction. In order to master the practice of interviewing and reporting, it is essential that the student has the theoretical basis for understanding the different types and fundamentals of interviews and how they are articulated in the production of reports guided by the principles of ethics, pluralism and diversity.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
The curricular unit is developed in contact hours and in the student's autonomous working time. The teaching methodologies are expository and interrogative and mainly practical: based on research workshops on journalistic information and interviews oriented to the production of a great report (Project Based Learning).
The continuous assessment regime consists of a press conference (20%), in which students are assessed as to the ability to articulate questions to a guest and produce a text based on that experience; a moment of interview in a television studio (30%), in which students exercise both questions and answers, debate and argumentation; the preparation of a final report that deepens the discussion on a topic of public interest (40%) and a theoretical examination and verification of the reading of a longform article (10%). UFP Pedagogical Regulation applies to all items.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The expository and interrogative methodology, based on the reading and discussion of academic and journalistic texts, theoretically bases the student so that he can exercise the practice of interviewing and reporting in a conscious and critical way. On a practical level, contact with information sources, whether in a simulated classroom environment or outside the academic environment, fosters in the student fundamental skills for the full performance of the communication interview, such as the ability to focus and listen the resourcefulness, the expressiveness, the capacity for observation and improvisation, the clarity and objectivity of the speech. Finally, the project to produce a great report materializes the theoretical and practical knowledge discussed and exercised throughout the course in a piece of greater scope and depth, stimulating the student to reflect and forcing him to plan carefully and in a disciplined way. project execution steps.
