Learning outcomes

This course is aimed:
(a) to provide students with a basic, updated knowledge, and conceptual and methodological tools for understanding human developmental processes in different psychological domains and different ages;
(b) to promote reflections on the application of this knowledge within education contexts.

Learning outcomes are grouped in 5 areas:

1) Knowledge and understanding
At the end of the course the student should:
a) have a basic knowledge and understanding of developmental and learning processes in the different psychological domains (motor-perceptual, cognitive, communicative-linguistic, emotional, socio-relational) from neonatal life to adolescence;
b) have a basic knowledge and understanding of the main theories explaining these processes;
c) have a basic knowledge and understanding of factors which can promote or, on the contrary, hinder individual developmental trajectories.

2) Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
a) interpret child behavior (the behavior of a given child in a given context) in the light of the acquired knowledge;
b) apply the acquired knowledge to observe child behavior during interactions with peers and adults, in order to both identify possible risk indicators, and promote social integration;
c) consider the relationship between child characteristics (individual factors and skills) and contextual characteristics (family, social and cultural factors) to understand individual differences in developmental trajectories, and to identify specific promotion factors.

3) Making judgments
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
a) reflect autonomously on how the knowledge of developmental processes in the different psychological domains can affect the work of an educator.

4) Communication skills
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
a) use a clear language and an adequate terminology to argue on issues related to developmental processes and to describe typical and atypical behaviors in different developmental domains.

5) Learning skills
At the end of the course the student should be able to:
a) learn from observing children’s behaviors in their daily contexts;
b) find and use effectively the information sources needed to deepen issues related to developmental processes of interest.

Stage e Tirocini

Le ulteriori attività formative (crediti F) sono interamente coperte dall’attività di tirocinio “indiretto” (1 cfu) da svolgersi nel secondo anno e di tirocinio “diretto” (14 cfu) da svolgersi presso enti convenzionati per un numero complessivo di 15 cfu (375 ore). Chi è iscritta/o al curriculum servizi per l’infanzia è tenuta/o a svolgere il tirocinio presso nidi e servizi per la prima infanzia per almeno il 50% delle ore.
Il tirocinio professionalizzante (375 ore, pari a 15 cfu), è obbligatorio sia nella sua forma diretta che indiretta.
Il tirocinio indiretto, della durata di 25 ore a frequenza obbligatoria al 75%, si svolge in Università per 20 ore e in forma di lavoro individuale per 5 ore e consiste in un accompagnamento iniziale delle/degli studenti da parte dei tutor attraverso un percorso formativo 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, risponde alle esigenze costantemente espresse sia dalle/dagli studenti stessi sia dalle parti sociali che dai referenti degli enti convenzionati.
Il tirocinio diretto si propone di raggiungere i seguenti obiettivi:
  • fare esperienza diretta di attività professionali, che richiedono un livello di preparazione al lavoro educativo;
  • approfondire in particolare il rapporto tra preparazione teorica, acquisita mediante lo studio, ed esperienza pratica, tra mondo del sapere e della cultura e mondo del lavoro e delle professioni;
Al termine del tirocinio diretto lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta, nella modalità concordata con il tutor accademico.

Nuove Linee Guida per il tirocinio di Scienze dell'educazione.

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