E-Learning (online).

The curricular unit is designed based on learning sequences that include a phase of autonomous work by students carrying out individual or collaborative activities (pairs or groups) aimed at developing the competences with each of the topics. These activities are anchored in the students' professional context and are supported by a variety of theoretical resources provided within the CU. They may involve analysing cases, designing an assessment plan adapted to a given context, and comparative analysis of assessment models, among others.

When necessary, team forums are set up to facilitate the articulation of work within each group, which is free to resort to other forms of communication, namely synchronous.

 All thematic topics are associated with moments of debate in a general forum involving the whole class, aimed at deepening concepts and broadening perspectives supported by collective reflection. 

The assessment design is continuous and formative and includes the following elements:

- Carrying out the proposed activities

- Participation in forum debates

- Presentation of an individual portfolio on the path taken by each student and their self-reflection on that path.

In addition to the assessment for which the lecturer is responsible, student self-assessment is also included throughout the course, based on a proposal discussed in class.
