The methodological approach is the principle of the variety of methodological strategies. It must facilitate active participation and learning of the students. In this sense, keynote sessions will arise with large group, and some activities to work in small groups using cooperative learning and self-employment will be strengthened. The teacher has to support students in this methodological approach, providing some resources to mediate their learning process. The tutorials will be considered as a fundamental part in this methodological approach.


Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
