Course Structure


    The teaching is divided into a part of frontal lessons (about 70% of the hours of classroom activities), during which the themes of the course are introduced.

    The remaining 30% is dedicated to classroom work: students will be asked to revise the contents of the lessons, to work in small groups, to present their work (also at home) in the classroom.

    It is possible to participate in tests in progress.

    If the course is taught in mixed mode or at a distance, the necessary changes may be introduced compared to what was previously stated, in order to comply with the planned program and reported in the syllabus.

    In order to guarantee equal opportunities and in compliance with the laws in force, interested students can ask for a personal interview in order to plan any compensatory and/or dispensatory measures, based on the educational objectives and specific needs. You can also contact the teacher referent CInAP (Center for Active and Participatory Integration - Services for Disabilities and/or DSA) of our Department, Prof. Elena Commodari.

Detailed Course Content


    Basic use of Word and Power Point to accomplish assigned work is required.

Textbook Information


    Attendance is not mandatory, but strongly recommended. The lessons are characterized by the active participation of the students. Their attendance of the lessons allows them to progressively acquire mastery of the contents, to confront themselves with colleagues and with the teacher on themes and problems, to constantly verify their own learning levels.

    During the classroom activities, students will have the opportunity to actively work on the learning contents of the course. Frontal lessons will be alternated with moments of group and individual work; moments of presentation of the material that the students themselves have produced (in the classroom or outside it). These activities will be considered as formative verification tests, aimed at allowing the student to self-assess the level of mastery of the contents and tools of analysis of the discipline.
