The Teaching-Application learning methodology will be applied for the organization of programs and definition of didactic-pedagogical strategies. Teaching-application, a learning methodology inspired by educational constructivism, consists of promoting learning by bringing students, subjects of their learning, closer to the specific issues and situations of government practice, incorporating the knowledge they have as a result of their experience.

The theoretical contents will be followed by case analysis so that students can make sense of the complex scenarios where policies are designed, implemented and evaluated. Students will be invited to identify issues and seek public policy solutions through the use of rigorous concepts, theories, evidence and data.

The methodology to be adopted in each subject with specific content will be defined by the professor, in dialogue with the course coordination and based on Enap's guidelines and suggestions to be offered in a specific document on methodological guidelines and in planning meetings.

Enap's specialization courses strive to integrate and apply the contents taught through the Applied Integrating Discipline (DIA). DIA consists of a knowledge integration laboratory for innovation and improvement of public management practice, with experimentation activities that take place throughout the course, between blocks of disciplines. At each meeting, themes relevant to the group of subjects previously taught are summarized, with the application of knowledge to specific cases.

At the MPP, the strategy for content integration and application includes the discussion of public policy challenges outlined by the students in their personal statements. These challenges will be discussed on at the DIA. They should also be compiled and made available to the course's instructors so that course discussions can address topics directly relevant to the students’ professional realities.
