Evaluation Methodology:
Theoretical-practices are used to explain the subjects mentioned in the contents. The laboratory practices are used to present, explain and evaluate the work to be carried out according to the subjects covered in the theoretical-practical and defined calendar. Tutorial sessions support and guide systematic work in an organizational context. The evaluation consists of 3 components: continuous systematic work in organizational context: 25%; 2 works: 20% + 30% presented orally to the whole group; final descriptive and reflective report of the activities carried out and of the acquired learning: 25%. The final report differs from the two specific studies because it includes all reflective assessment of learning in the context of work-systematic work and should include: the relevance of the training course for applying knowledge in the context of work/internship, as well as the contribution of experience in the organization for specific training
