several tables with the detailed teaching activities along the career are
included. The organization of the information from a topic that covers a large
period of the career is organized in temporal reverse order. Thus, more recent
information appears fist. In
the tables where the pedagogical activities are summarized ,the following
columns are present from the left to the right, t: i) academic year; ii)
Semester (Spring/Winter), iii) Number of order [Raa] Responsibility on the
course (including teaching), [CRaa] Co-responsibility on the course (including
teaching), and [Tcc] Teaching on the course, iv) Name of the Course (when
taught in Portuguese, the translated name is included). If taught in English,
only the course name is present. In both cases, a hyperlink to a webpage where
the corresponding material can be found is included, v) Name of the degree(s),
vi) Number of the students attending the course and internal IST evaluation,
according to the QUC system, and finally vii) role on the course.
