Teaching method

The classroom activities will be based on a student-centered interactive teaching model, thereby valuing the personal, social and cultural dimensions of knowledge and assuming that meaning is constructed by the learner through experience. This model seeks to use debate as a means to help students develop shared meanings from common experiences, or to confront each other with differences of opinion. Critical reflection on various documents and materials, classroom assignments, and oral presentations are complementary strategies to the model.

Evaluation method

Método de avaliação - group work to develop an evala methodology to be used in a teaching context and the relevant materials for that/those lesson(s) (30%). Work should contain a brief theoretical discussion and materials to implement this methodology with students.(30%), individual work to produce a learning situation or didactic subtheme, with oral presentation in class(50%), participation in class activities and small work(20%)
