    It is considered important to use active methodologies that facilitate teaching/learning. Among them we highlight: presentation of texts associated with the themes to be treated, their critical discussion in small groups and subsequent presentation of the conclusions for debate in the class.

    Whenever appropriate, present concrete examples of good work by students from other years, related to the content covered, inviting them to present their work and discuss it with the class.

    Interdisciplinarity whenever possible with other curricular units of the course, in the programming of activities to be carried out.

    Preparation by groups of students of some topics to be addressed and presentation and discussion in the class.
