    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The subject of History of Architecture and the Arts II presents lessons of both theoretical and practical nature. The lectures are essentially expository, seeking to fulfill the contents in the syllabus. For these classes are used teaching resources available at the ULHT suited for the dynamic, sequential and structured presentation of images. The practical classes are undertaken in the form of Discussion Groups on the topics covered in the lectures, or of follow-up of the work for the making of the monograph. The Discussion Groups are intended to relate, in a thoughtful way, disciplinary content, the systematization or originality of the proposed work and the relevance of the topics covered. The evaluation consists in the elaboration of a synthesis work and a research work, each item with a weight of 50% in the final result.
