Such a strategy of teaching / learning aims to develop in students the ability to solve problems within their area of ??study, and to constitute and substantiate their arguments.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
Lectures of expositive nature
Practical analytical work of a plac3/space (points 1 and 2 of the program)
Written test (program point 3)
The evaluation will be based on the student's ability to apply the acquired knowledge and understanding, which should show a professional approach to the work developed in their vocational area
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
The nature of the points 1 and 2 is mainly theoretical which is consistent with the type of classes; evaluation through practical work (paragraphs 1 and 2 of the program) aims at the production capacities of practical application referred to in Goals. Students should develop the ability to collect, select and interpret relevant information, particularly in their area of ??study, so as to enable them to support their solutions and the judgments they make, including in analyzing relevant scientific and ethical social aspects; also to develop skills that allow them to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions, both to specialists and non-specialists.
