  • The class is to be divided in small groups, with each being assigned one of the 'Exercises' proposed (it is for the lecturer to decide whether to resort to all 'Exercises' proposed or focus on one or few);
  • Each group should review the case study or fact problem and prepare the answers to the questions posed (15 minutes);
  • Each group presents its responses to the rest of the class and the floor is open to discussion (app. 2-5 minutes per group);
