Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The understanding, the appreciation and the critical evaluation of contemporary Portuguese history, its regional and world while integration, its values and its possible future must be some of the most important aspects of the construction and straitening of identity, to what History as an academic subject may and has to be used. The construction of critical citizens, able to identify and to use their civic rights of intervention, is reinforced by the way that the importance of History is used in this curriculum. Working from this contents on, we want students to be aware of “fundamental references” that allow them a strong reading, both in a synchronic and diachronic dimension, of the most important moments of Portugal’s contemporary history.

Teaching methodologies

Demonstration of the teaching methodologies coherence with the curricular unit's intended learning outcomes

The teaching methodologies intend to put students in contact with historical knowledge, through the reading and analysis of investigations produced by recognized investigators in the contemporary history area, so that they can recognize the most important aspects of theory in the subject. The investigation students must be able to do, from primary sources and related to the local history, means a lot in the learning process. The most important issue is to see how they have access and how they begin to use the methods of investigation in history. The tutorial sessions and support discussions have a huge importance in the preparation and the guidance of those investigation projects.
