  • Teaching methodologies and assessment

    Teaching methodologies and assessment

    The innovative methodologies to support the teaching-learning process used in this UC will allow the development of various skills such as autonomy, problem-solving skills and cognitive and socio-emotional skills with implications for clinical practice and personal development. The teaching of the UC will rely on interactive exposure, interspersing the disclosure of information with individual and group practical activities. Problem-based learning will be promoted by presenting clinical cases whose clinical intervention students will work on in groups, facilitating shared learning. The role-play exercises and the realization and presentation of the evaluation work will allow student-centred teaching, where the student will have space to explore, conduct and challenge the themes, obtain feedback and train the contents' applicability.
