The subject "Game Theory and Practice and Body Expression" focuses on the knowledge of the bases and structure of games and the elements that make up body expression in order to use them as a tool for the transmission of content and learning. The methodology is based on guided discovery and practice, as well as understanding the internal logic of playful and expressive manifestations.
