5.1. Methodological overview

This is mainly a practical course. After the presentation of the contents of each part, which serve as a theoretical and conceptual frame, the practical proposals include a series of assignments, with clear objectives, to be made in the workshop. The combination of pratice and theory doesn't necessarily have the same sequence. Sometimes the theory part is needed in order to approach the assignments correctly. However, there are times when the theory part is given during or after the practical experimentation, thus becoming a guide to the results obtained. In most cases, the practical assignments will have a natural reference.
