The evaluation of this learning unit includes a dimension of a continuous nature, based on assessing the quality of work summaries realized within each module; of the discussion carried out, online, in virtual class; and also on the individual project development of a artifact that renders the concrete knowledge achieved in context of up to three modules chosen by the student.
Throughout the year, students will be integrated into research groups within the modules, participating in the analysis of problems and developing solutions and prototypes in order to find relevant results or new artefacts that render concrete knowledge achieved in each module.
Given the technological nature of this learning unit, the teaching/learning process follows an approach based on online collaborative theoretical-practical learning, in virtual class, that involves the realization of practical assignments, both individual and in group, whose results are presented in both online and face-to-face session, to ensure mutual complementarity between theory and practice.
