Teaching Methodologies

The methodology focuses on problem solving and critical discussion, through a learning environment that challenges students in their knowledge construction process. Therefore, students are involved in thematic reflection opportunities that assume many forms, such as the analysis and discussion of texts, the discussion of case studies and the construction of genograms. They are also involved in exploratory studies on families and networks. Their results are presented in the classroom, allowing the debate between the students and the acquisition of analysis skills and a reflexive attitude, promoting a meaningful learning process.
