Strategic Management in HEIs. Academic manager training programs. Influence of new National Curricular Guidelines on graduate courses in Administration. Innovation and redesign of the curricular architecture of courses, including EAD. Planning teaching-learning – defining learning objectives, pedagogical resources, evaluating teaching-learning. Planning, execution, and evaluation of activities of curricular interest and interdisciplinary integration activities. Higher education evaluation systems (such as SINAES, in Brazil) and HEIs, courses, and student performance in the dimensions of teaching, research, and extension. Postgraduate Evaluation System (such as the quadrennial evaluation of CAPES/Qualis, in Brazil). Institutional self-assessment. Organization of Graduate Programs. Teaching-learning assessment theories and methodologies. Instruments for evaluating learning and the effectiveness of the teaching-learning process.

Teaching cases are a didactic tool. They involve describing an administrative situation experienced by a decision maker in a private, public, or third sector organizational environment. Based on the report of a dilemma to be discussed in the context of graduate or postgraduate teaching, the teacher will address the learning objectives of the discipline. The case should contemplate one or more topics of Administration, in order to illustrate the reality experienced by organizations, institutions, groups, or people that experience a particular challenge, described in detail. The case elaborated aims to fit the needs for use in teaching-learning environments, both to illustrate a previously studied theory and to serve as provocation during the presentation of new content. Besides describing the case, teaching notes should also be included, which guide the teacher in conducting the discussion of the case.
