Methodology and grading
- Case studies: Learning through the analysis of actual or simulated cases in order to interpret and resolve them by employing various alternative solution procedures.
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- The course will be graded with a grade F, based on the following criteria: F = 0.4E + 0.6P
E: is the score on the multiple-choice test with questions of a theoretical / practical, the subject taught. It will be similar to the tests performed during the course, but, logically, the questions may vary. QUESTIONS type shuold be theoretical (as shown on themes and references) and applied implementations as demanded on tasks and Practices. Since it is one pot, the corrections and cpunctuation criteria will be shown on the test header.
P: is the average rating of the practices during the course, where we will assess the correct writting and public exhibitions
