Teaching method

An interactive methodology that associates a time of formulation of questions that tend to enhance the experience of students and any other appropriate systematization of the integration of content and regulation of processes of research students is followed.

Evaluation method

The evaluation is based on contributions from students in class and in their subsequent formalization, in a written work. It is intended that students integrate training content in their thesis work. Additionally, with regard to cross-curricular content, the aim is that the students´ work feed thematic dossiers intended to be socialized by all.
