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

The areas of Cinema and Television are fundamental in the education of democratic citizens. Therefore,
to know its evolution, to reflect critically on the production of discourses, and to understand the political strategies, economic and legal factors that influence their democratisation are fundamental in the formation of this type of professionals.
It is intended that the students:
- Recognise the social and cultural importance of Cinema and Television.
- Critically understand cinema and television taking into account its history, and recognising differences and specificities.
- Analyse critically the main themes and problems that cinema and television deal with in the contemporary, local and international, contexts.
- Learn how to use audio and video technologies with intentionality, and ethical awareness:
- to record their professional activities and projects (production of documents / memory);
- to enhance understanding of the contexts in which they intervene (critical observation and research);
- to support and diversify instruments and methods of interdisciplinary intervention and animation;
- as a means of poetic and artistic expression in collaborative projects (communities’ participation).

Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The proposed contents allow students to access the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to develop critical awareness in the consumption, creation and mobilisation of cinematographic and television references and practices while working in the field of animation and sociocultural intervention.

Teaching methodologies

Sessions are focused on plenary or small group discussions, based on information provided directly by the teacher or using written texts and audiovisual documents. Practical and progressive exercises will be carried out, of mainly two kinds: viewing and analyzing films; initiation to the creation and production with audiovisual means. These exercises are to be to developed in class and autonomously. Students are invited to present and discuss the results/products of the different activities and exercises.

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

The proposed methodologies promote the mobilisation of interdisciplinary knowledge, the continuous discussion of proposals and experiences, and the formation of critical and sensitive approaches (through observation and investigation with the camera, development of critical thinking and reflection on contemporary social problems), thus contributing to the dynamics of sociocultural intervention projects’ development with audiovisual resources and potentialities.

Assessment methodologies and evidences

The work developed in and out of class will be subject to continuous/formative and summative assessment:
A) Research, production and editing of an audiovisual project taking into account the interests and practices of Animation and Sociocultural Intervention: 40%.
B) Practical exercises produced in classroom as well as in autonomous worktime (recording and editing, critically watch and analyze audiovisual artifacts): 30%.
C) Presence and participation in debates and other the classroom activities: 30%.
