Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The programmed content is in line with the objectives, given that it is intended to give students an up-to-date and critical perspective on the functioning of cultural industries and the different theoretical positions on the same subject. The programmatic contents provided allow a transversal and historical view of the phenomenon, as well as the analysis of the contemporary national and international situation and the main themes and problems associated with it.

Teaching methodologies

The classes will be divided into two contiguous sections, a first one with an expositive nature in which the proposed concepts will be presented in the programmatic contents and a second one, which proposes, from the reading of texts, analysis of practical cases related to the concepts presented above or contact with Agents of the field of culture, the collective debate on these issues.

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

It is considered that expository methodology followed by student participation in the analysis of documents and practical cases, always guided by the teacher, will contribute to the development of the competencies identified in the objectives. The student will have the opportunity to know theoretical thinking about the topics under analysis and deepen their understanding by identifying and questions and obtaining answers and by observing their application in concrete cases.
