4. LEARNING STRATEGY

Description of learning strategy:

This course develops a problem-based learning strategy, challenging students to craft


solutions to real problems, making connections between old and new concepts,
encouraging them to find and share information and ideas attempting to solve the
situation.

Therefore, students will understand the involved concepts, then they work in
collaborative learning groups, researching, analyzing, and providing
recommendations, explanations, or solutions.

In order to develop the strategy, this course is divided into three moments:
Initial moment: Course recognition

Intermediate moment: Intermediate assessment and collaborative work, divided into


the next units:

 Unit 1. Intellectual Property


 Unit 2. Technology Valuation
 Unit 3. Technology Negotiation

Final moment: Final assessment – Open Objective Test
