  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    It is assumed that students already have some familiarity with information technologies but do not yet have systematized knowledge about the educational use of these technologies or about personal use of advanced features of these technologies. Thus, this unit aims to systematize knowledge through: a) Seminars (previous reading of documents; presentation by students of reading topics; discussion and synthesis); and b) Workshops (individual activity in computer lab).
