Teaching methods

Blended-learning course with traditional lectures carried out with the assistance of multimedia teaching aids for introducing main topics, complemented by practical individual and group exercises, so that students can contextualize what they have learnt during the lessons. The course also implies the use of the e-learning platform and the virtual classroom adopted at UFP. Students access contents and activities through the login and password provided at enrolment. Therefore, there will be a constant interaction teacher/ student and student/student who will be in contact, regardless of geographical distances, based on the potentiality of the e-learning platform and the virtual classroom.
