Students will participate in the interventions in each of the classes, interacting with the teacher on different aspects. Eventually, they will make some text commentary and exposition.

In order to obtain the corresponding certificate of achievement and, consequently, the credits granted to this chair, they must participate in the design of an application to gamify the learning of the European Union, under the direction and supervision of the professors.

A multiple-choice test will be administered as an evaluation.
