    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Throughout the course, students will encounter various challenges and have the opportunity to analyze case studies that will enable them to learn through research and experimentation. The syllabus encourages a way of thinking based on questioning and reflection. Students will be encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas with their classmates and, whenever possible, with the academic community through project exhibitions and other means of dissemination.
