The presentation of theoretical contents will be followed by exercises / demonstrations carried out by the students.
The projects produced under the C.U. of Audiovisual Production will be post-produced
The progression in the post-production of the contents made by the students will be monitored and evaluated continuously.

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

Any student of this curricular unit must adapt and try working methods and find better fitted workflows for different situations.
The regular practice of editing exercises allows to consolidate the technological domain but, also, forces the confrontation with situations of diverse conditioners. The student, in search of solutions, both in planning and execution, triggers processes to approach and solve problems.
Thus, combining creative and technical skills, the student obtains adequate routines and methodologies to the post-production professional environment.

Students with a special status and who can not attend regularly the Curricular Unit may be evaluated on a continuous assessment basis, after negotiation with the C.U. faculty member. This negotiation may result in the definition of elements and moments of evaluation different from those presented in this program.
Students with normal status who do not obtain a grade in the assessment or who do not attend the course will be evaluated by a practical exam (on all contents exposed in this program), to be taken on a date to be defined by the ESE / IPS Board.
