    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching: In theoretical-scientific sessions, will be used expository, interrogative and methodologies. Students are expected to present papers about their traineeship experiences, with the help of new technologies and with particular attention to the development of orality and work submission rules. In pratical sessions, pedagogical supervision sessions will be held in small groups in order to promote critical reflection on the traineeship experiences. 


    Assessment: The UC only includes the continuous assessment regime (does not provide for an exam), based on the following elements: 1) traineeship supervisor evaluation (35%); 2) traineeship report and oral work presentation (45%); 3) participation in pedagogic supervision (20%). The grade of each of the elements must be greater than or equal to 9,5 points. Mandatory attendance at 70% of sessions.
