Practical information for students


Stage e Tirocini

Per le altre attività formative (crediti F) sono previsti 9 cfu (pari a 225 ore) da acquisire solamente attraverso l’attività di tirocinio obbligatoria, a sua volta suddivisa in:
  • tirocinio indiretto (1 cfu: 25 ore di frequenza obbligatoria in università per il 75%) in preparazione dell’attività formativa sul campo;
  • tirocinio diretto (8 cfu), da svolgersi presso enti convenzionati.
L’ordinamento didattico della LM in Scienze pedagogiche prevede che il tirocinio indiretto a frequenza obbligatoria si svolga in università per il 75% nel secondo anno (1 CFU: 25 ore).
Il tirocinio indiretto consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso di formazione della durata di 25 ore.
La finalità di questo percorso è quella di preparare le/gli studenti alla particolare forma di apprendimento costituita dal tirocinio, dotandoli di conoscenze e strumenti adeguati a osservare, comprendere e rielaborare criticamente l’esperienza di tirocinio nei servizi educativi e ad affrontare il tirocinio negli enti con metodo e consapevolezza.
Il percorso, da attuare in gruppi da 20-25 persone sotto la supervisione di un tutor proveniente dal mondo professionale di educatori e pedagogisti, risponde alle esigenze costantemente espresse sia dalle/dagli studenti stessi sia dalle parti sociali che dai referenti degli enti convenzionati.
 

Nuove Linee Guida per il tirocinio di Scienze pedagogiche.

Per altre informazioni in merito alle procedure per svolgere il tirocinio, è possibile contattare l'Ufficio Stage e Tirocini.
