Learning outcomes

The course aims to focus on the profound changes that have invested contemporary society in the reflexive modernity. They are economic, political and cultural factors that have an impact not only on society as a whole, but especially on the biographies of individual life. Politicization of the economy, the decline of the Fordist mode of production, weakening the boundaries of nation-states and multiculturalism are detectable at the macro level processes, but which give rise, at the micro level, a profound redefinition of the individual-society relationship and the processes of construction of identity. Individualization, de-institutionalization and pluralization of cultural systems give rise to new social configurations, in which plants become the networks of relationships and the dynamics of the personal network construction.
The deepening of the new social dynamics aims to give students and students of the Master's degree in Pedagogical Sciences the tools to reduce their planning and / or organization and coordination of educational services in a socio-cultural and social context characterized by high levels of complexity.

Program

A)First part: in the first part of the course, the topic of political, cultural and economic environments will be deepened from the text of A. Giddens, which highlights how the current dynamics of modernity, in particular the breakdown of the systems processes social impact on the concept of trust, risk, safety and danger. Take shape new social configurations (reflexive modernity and ciange modern osicial imaginaries.).
Topics covered:
- modernity / post-modernity: radicalization of processes
- the limits of a reading of modernity only as capitalist development
- how trust and risk environments change from the transition from traditional society to modern society
- the dark side of modernity: bureaucracy and totalitarianism
- the moral order of modernity
- the economy as an objectified reality
- the rise of the public and private sphere.

B) Second part: the second part of the course will address the issue of reflexive modernity from some specific perspectives: How family and intimate relationships change, how the changes of the work is being reflected in social and systemic integration mechanisms; the problem of recognition in an increasingly multicultural and individualized society; such as dynamic freedom-security, belonging and individualisation influence the mechanisms of construction of identities 'reflexive'.

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.
