Description
Oral Examination and Exercise with Teamwork in Teacher-Subject Proposals. I ask for the utilization of documentaries, space-related videos and the application of qualitative research (mainly in-depth interviews) and techniques of audio-visual anthropology (photography, video) to the socio-spatial phenomena of direct experience through the proposed topics. It is suggested to combine the tools of cartography, Geographic Information Systems, urban planning and analytical "tools" for a possible proposal for cultural spatial planning.
