  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The articulation of the teaching methodologies of the CU with the pedagogical model of the EC is related to the combination of several pedagogical methods recommended by the main scientific pedagogical references of higher education. Therefore, it is intended to encourage active and autonomous learning of students.  
    In this way, the oral presentation with the support of audiovisual materials (ME1) aims to provide students with relevant knowledge that will allow them to adopt an active and evidence-based stance in practical teaching methods. Interactive dialogue (ME2) will then be used jointly, fostering students' critical reasoning; discussion of neuropsychological assessment and neurocognitive profiles To explore and define guiding intervention goals (ME3); small group activities in class (ME4), for the creation of possible neuropsychological intervention strategies and tasks suited to the proposed goals, also reflecting on the potentials and limitations for clinical practice.
