Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The contents are fully consistent with the objectives of the course. The workload of each of the content is also suitable for apprenticeship goals.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Presentation and discussion of relevant theoretical concepts in the classroom, self-study orientation of students by consulting annotated bibliography. Research on pertinent issues related to the matter exposed in the classroom. Two theoretical tests of continuous assessment will be done.
Regarding the laboratory component, the learning results from the laboratorial work that reinforces the theoretical learning. Two laboratorial tests of continuous assessment will be done.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
Teaching methodologies (theoretical exposition, debate and guidance of self-study and laboratory work) are fully consistent with the objective of the course. The workload of each of the content is also suitable for apprenticeship goals.
