Intended learning outcomes (Knowledges, skills and competencies to be developed by the students)

The knowledge and the production of information (theory and practice) about the beginning, the development and the
construction of each media and its history is the big objective, done in four principles: to know, to organize, to think and
to do. The study of the theory and the discussions in class seminars is the basis of the students’ work of Social
Communication (compulsory) and Língua Gestual Portuguesa (optional). To identify the conditions of media creation and
evolution, to think about the genealogy of their construction and to question the different contexts and development of all
media, in a diachronic and synchronic view, to produce original thought and work in the media History and to know and
to use group proceedings are other objectives so as the practice of intellectual honesty.

Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

When one wants to know and to think about the evolution and the history of media it is necessary to identify and to ask
different questions to the communication media and to know how they started, how they went on and how they are today.
In what some of them are concerned – like cinema, radio and television – the presentation is more complete and the
discussions about the industry evolution, the public and private radios and the public and private televisions network
take longer because they are more complex matters. On the other side, students have to do the history of a newspaper
(this year the choice is Notícias de Amadora) in order they can understand the theory and methodological issues
involved in such proceedings and in order to achieve all the goals and objectives previously enounced.

Teaching methodologies

The work sessions are organized in different typologies: some are only theory based when different concepts and
themes are concerned; some are only practical and there texts and documentaries considered important are studied
for the themes of methodology and investigation in the History of Media and bout the present day situation of cinema
and television; a study visit to a place of interest to the History of Media is compulsory (Hemeroteca de Lisboa, RTP
Arquives, Radio Museum…) and for the orientation of the writing of the texts and products for the evaluation. The
organization and the production of the history of a newspaper is part of the development of investigation skills. Tutorial
students support (individual and in group) are organized and also through Moodle Platform work or email.
In the presente academic year, tutorials are done through Zoom platform.
In the present academic year two other changes have been included:
The study visit, in the place, is going to be to Museu das Comunicações, in Lisbon, in four groups, divided in two in each session.
The final work of the newspaper history is replaced by a group work, about the history of each of the following media: book and reading; press and censorship; photography, radio; cinema; television; news agencies; jobs in media; new media.

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

When one wants students to know the history of different media and that they think about it, it is necessary to organize
the class work in order that those objectives should be achieved. In order to do so, the seminar sessions and theory are
used to list general questions in order to organize the knowledge about each subject; the study visits are used to
develop autonomy and the skills of identifying different forms of accessing to the History of Media; the organization of
written reports about those study visits may develop the synthesis skills and the public presentation of the work; the
writing of an original history of a newspaper (from the theory investigation and problems to the writing of an article about
it) is fundamental to understand the mechanisms that support the investigation and the production of results in the
History of Media.

Assessment methodologies and evidences

The study visit and the final report is 40%. It is compulsory for all students.

The history of a media has two components: one delivered online (= plans, the gathering of data...) and it is 20% of final points
