Learning outcomes

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
This course aims to introduce the framework of industrial and organizational (I/O) psychology as a field of study and of intervention. In particular, it focuses on the relationships between interpersonal interactions (individual differences and not), job characteristics and organizational variables. At the end of the course, the student should be able to recognize constructs such as Work Engagement and Burnout, apply organizational models such as Job Demands-Resources and Demand-Control, and evaluate behaviors such as Job crafting and Counterproductive Work Behavior. Regarding the application of the subject of study, the student should be able to understand and solve interactive cases based on empirical evidence in the field of occupational psychology. Finally, it is expected that, at the end of the course, the student has acquired enough autonomy to recognize and process satisfactory strategies to solve common I/O psychological problems.

The didactic methods adopted are different for attendant and non-attendant students, due to the high level of innovation of the literature taken as a reference, which requires a continuous verification of the contents of the course.
For attendant students, the didactic method used will be frontal lessons to deliver basic notions; key-categories and fundamental practical instruments. In addition to this, students will be asked to perform reading of scientific papers, and writing of digital works related to this discipline.
Besides, also thanks to the e-learning platform of the University, we will propose refreshment readings and media related to the topics of the course.
During the first lesson, attendant students will receive the complete calendar of the didactic activity provided with the dates and topics of the lessons. Timetable, room and any possible suspension for the Professor's academic reasons will be provided as well.
For non-attendant students, the didactic method will be the support provided for by the Professor during his receiving hours.
Moreover, throughout the academic year the Professor will be available to receive individual students, according to the times published on the website, which are constantly updated.
Further updates will be made available to the students in a timely manner, also through dedicated notices.

DIDACTIC MATERIAL:
The content of textbooks, lessons and exercises fits the programme. Further didactic material is available on the e-learning platform.

Examination Methods

ASSESSMENT METHODS AND CRITERIA:
The assessment of learning outcomes involves an oral test and the production of an exam paper to be sent to the teacher before the exam. Exam and didactic methods adopted are different for attendant and non-attendant students, due to the high level of innovation of the literature taken as a reference, which requires a continuous verification of the contents of the course.
For attendant students, the didactic method used will be frontal lessons to deliver basic notions; key-categories and fundamental practical instruments. In addition to this, students will be asked to perform reading of scientific papers, and writing of digital works related to this discipline.
Besides, also thanks to the e-learning platform of the University, we will propose refreshment readings and media related to the topics of the course.
During the first lesson, attendant students will receive the complete calendar of the didactic activity provided with the dates and topics of the lessons. Timetable, room and any possible suspension for the Professor's academic reasons will be provided as well.
For non-attendant students, the didactic method will be the support provided for by the Professor during his receiving hours.
Both modalities require the development of an exam paper to be forwarded to the Professor one month before the oral test and evaluated as an integral part of the exam. The short term must be developed following the next guidelines: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Guida-Prova-dEsame--BJLuAB07ZRojeAflY_orygQEAQ-3qrT5LvNcHGjBauvO8618
