    Active teaching methodologies play a crucial role in the process of this discipline, promoting active student participation and encouraging autonomous learning. Strategies such as Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and the Flipped Classroom are highlighted. PBL involves challenging students to solve complex problems, encouraging critical thinking and collaboration.
