    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The methodology used in each session is structured as follows: the sessions are oriented following a methodological planning, consisting of phases. Each phase is developed according to specific contents, articulated in accordance with a class structure that includes theoretical and practical moments.

    The teaching model is based on an active and dynamic pedagogical practice, i.e., it allows exploring the creative capacity when subject to conceptual stimuli and simultaneously exploring the result in confrontation with the result of "other(s)".
