The purpose of this talk is to share the work as a professor of the Bachelor of Information Systems at the University of Minas Gerais (using the Python language to teach Object Oriented Programming II). We are going to talk about the difficulties encountered by students in learning this subject and how we managed to overcome it with the use of a modern language with a shorter learning curve and how this can contribute to a lower dropout rate from the course. Difficulties encountered, pedagogical approach used, exercise practices performed with students.

In this conversation, we will talk about the seven steps of the methodological proposal to practically implement the use of Python, increase student engagement and make use of real examples and practices:

Methodological Proposal
1. Easy to get started
2. Clear problem definition
3. Growing difficulty
4. Collaborative work
5. Market Practices
6. Multidisciplinary
7. All open and published
8. Online classes
