Teaching Methodologies

The methodology aims to be predominantly active and participatory in the sense of building knowledge, giving students the opportunity to develop skills and strategies in a work of individual and also collaborative investment.
The evaluation will respect the provisions of the Rules of ESEC.
The evaluation is assumed as continuous, including self and hetero-evaluation. It contemplates the individual pedagogical simulation and other work developed in the course to verify the domain of educational objectives and enhancement of teaching skills.
Thus (according to RFPIF, IEFP 2012), the final assessment of trainees is calculated according to the following weights:
Initial pedagogical simulation – 10%
Pedagogical objectives – 30%
Teaching skills – 30%
Intervention Project – 30%

– To develop a constructive analysis that can contribute to the improvement of training systems, both in technical and pedagogical and/or organizational terms.
