Observacions

The teaching consists of a few seminars open for discussions. The purpose is to present a critical discussion and assessment of some of the main concepts of the course. There are also in-class tutorial activities to support the development of the assignments.

The teaching strategy is to present a critical overview of academic research practice. Students will develop and present an assignment in which they will use their master thesis proposal as a framework to be trained in the use of research methods. The purpose of this assignment is to allow the student to extend and reinforce his or her understanding of the material of the course and to contribute to the student development in terms of scholarly inquiry, analytic and critical thinking, collaborative work, and effective communication.

Students must also expect to work effectively in teams and to prepare formal written assignments in a clear and logical manner. Thus, this course aims not only to develop the student’s critical understanding of a range of research methods and processes but also to encourage the student to present their analyses in a logical and convincing manner.
