Learning outcomes

• knowledge to plan, organize and evaluate interventions in the field of social policies
• knowledge of co-planning and negotiation with different actors and within the system of accreditations of excellence.

• mastery in the use of data collection and information tools;
• socio-economic planning capacity.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES The social care reform considers programming as the key tool for the governance of social and health policies. The course, therefore, will have more objectives: to provide knowledge in terms of methodologies for collecting and analyzing complexity problems (use of indicators for programming and evaluation also within the system of accredita-tions of excellence); methods and techniques of socio-economic planning that can support innovation in social inter-ventions; the ways in which design becomes an advanced central competence of the professional social work (network coordination functions, case management, reporting techniques, fundraising techniques). Through the construction of a project protocol on a case of social intervention, the teaching aims to provide the conceptual basis for the evaluation of intervention projects or complex service organizations. . 


MM: LESSONS The assistance reform sees the programming as the fundamental tool for the governance of territorial social and health and social policies. In the last decade, the work of social workers has been hit by various factors of complexity. They will be the contents of the lessons: - the transformation of welfare systems, characterized by the co-presence of networks of actors (public and private) oriented by values ​​and interests, sometimes in conflict with one another; - the multidimensional nature of the social problems they see in plans and projects as tools for integrating welfare policies (relations with the private social sector, integration between social and health care, corporate, municipal and community welfare, etc). - the appearance of problems of particular social urgency (eg migrations, environmental disasters, family transformations and new marginalization, new forms of dependency, etc.), extraneous to the codes of traditional policies.
MM: EXERCISES The new complexity scenarios analyzed during the lessons require rethinking in the advanced training of the social worker. They will constitute the contents of the exercises. In particular, reference will be made to: - methodologies for reading complexity problems (use of indicators for planning and evaluation); - design methods and techniques that can support innovation in social interventions (network logics; impact assessment; sense co-construction among stakeholders); - the methods through which the design becomes a central advanced competence of the professional social service (network coordination functions, case management, reporting techniques, fundraising techniques).
The program will have as main object the indicators to be used in the evaluation of intervention projects or complex service organizations, consistently with the other two modules. In particular: ex post evaluation (times, objectives, methods, techniques) and its positioning with respect to the timeline of the overall evaluation of a project / program; impact assessment and its positioning with respect to the timeline of the overall evaluation of a project / program (gross and net impact); objective and subjective indicators, statistical / non-statistical, complex; complex concepts and indicators; indicators and indices; measurement techniques and tools for ex post and impact assessment; analysis of evaluation protocols: strengths, weaknesses, errors, use of social research techniques, choice of indicators. In addition to the texts reported, other study materials will be provided by the teacher and / or will be given indications on how and where to retrieve the most updated tools and documents from the indicators presented and used during the lessons.
MM: LESSONS Topics - Scenarios and paradigms of programme-evaluation strategies in health and social environment - Accreditation, certification and excellence quality - Research models and types of evaluation: ex-ante, in-itinere; ex post evaluation - Ex-ante evaluation techniques (I.E. Delphi, focus groups, brainstorming, SWOT) - In itinere evaluation organisation - A framework for evaluation protocol construction and implementation The topics seen above will be met through the following didactic strategies Lessons: these will be relative to objective a), in synergy with the laboratory activity of this module as well as in accordance to the other modules of this course (Research and Social Work) will concur in meeting objectives c) and d) following the guidances of the Dublin Descriptors. MM: EXERCISES All theoretical topics will be translated into practice during the present part of the programme, that we recall below. Students will be organized in small groups each of which will work on a specific social work programme (created and designed by the same students). The present module will be relative to the design of the evaluation project, en.ante and in itinere evaluation in particular.

Examination Methods

The exam will consist of:
a) a written test (1-2 open questions) for the theoretical part for each module;
b) a project / protocol built by the student for the practical exercise according to the teacher's instructions;

The written test will take place on the same dates and classrooms simultaneously for all three modules, through a single form;
the protocols of the practical test, which the student will deliver by e-mail, will be evaluated by the teacher of the module for the specific part and, subsequently, in a collegial manner for the entire work.
The overall grade of each module will consist of the average between the grade of the written exam and that obtained on the protocol of the practical test; the weighted average of the votes obtained on the three modules will be verbalized on the electronic booklet as the overall grade of the course.
Written test of the three modules and evaluation of the three protocols must be passed by the student within the same exam session. If the student does not obtain a sufficient assessment in one of the three modules, he must redo the written test of all three at the next session of the same session, or in another session.
The three protocols of the practical test must be sent to the teachers during (and not beyond) the expiry of the session within which the student will sustain the written test.
Students who will take the written test in the first session of this AA (June 2020) will be able to deliver and evaluate their protocols also (but not beyond) the autumn session, keeping the grade obtained in the summer session valid. If this does not happen, at the first useful session (in this case January / February 2021), the student will have to redo the written test.
In relation to the situation resulting from the Coronavirus emergency, the above examination modalities are modified for the 2020 summer session, in accordance with the university indications, as specified below: ORAL EXAMINATION IN TELEMATIC MODE IN REPLACEMENT OF THE WRITTEN EXAM.
The indications for the protocol project remain unchanged.
Further details on the organization of the exam will be published on the notice page of the course of study.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Stage e Tirocini

Il Corso di Studi prevede un tirocinio obbligatorio, secondo le disposizioni e indicazioni che seguono.
1. Le attività di tirocinio degli studenti si svolgono presso strutture esterne, convenzionate con l’Università degli Studi di Verona ai sensi delle vigenti disposizioni in materia.
2. Nelle strutture esterne gli studenti svolgono le attività di tirocinio sotto la responsabilità di un assistente sociale (Tutor-supervisore), appartenente a dette strutture, coordinato a sua volta dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio. In assenza di un assistente sociale, operante nella struttura esterna, il Collegio didattico, per quanto di competenza, decide, su proposta dei responsabili del tirocinio, in ordine alle condizioni per l’effettuazione o la prosecuzione delle attività di tirocinio degli studenti interessati.
3. Le attività di tirocinio sono obbligatorie per almeno 250 ore. Il Collegio didattico, in deroga alle disposizioni del presente articolo, può consentire a studenti che si trovino in particolari condizioni, in specie se disabili, lavoratori o impegnati in organismi collegiali dell’Università degli Studi di Verona, di non ottemperare in parte all’obbligo di frequenza alle attività di tirocinio, predisponendo forme alternative di tirocinio, anche tramite supporti telematici e multimediali interattivi.
4. I responsabili delle attività di tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio, anche avvalendosi di appositi collaboratori o tutori esterni, accertano la presenza degli studenti presso le rispettive strutture.
5. Al termine dell’attività di tirocinio, lo studente deve presentare una relazione scritta al responsabile di tale attività presso il Corso di Studio. Lo studente elabora la relazione scritta, controfirmata dal Tutor-supervisore. La relazione finale viene valutata dal responsabile del tirocinio presso il Corso di Studio e deve tenere conto degli obiettivi prefissati dal Collegio didattico.
La valutazione viene attribuita al tirocinio nel seguente modo: sufficiente = 0; buono = 1; ottimo = 2; eccellente = 3 e verrà aggiunta alla media dei voti del curriculum al momento della discussione della tesi.
6. Gli Uffici della Direzione Didattica e Servizi agli Studenti predispongono la documentazione necessaria allo svolgimento delle attività di tirocinio, comprese attestazioni e certificazioni.
7. Nel caso in cui lo studente partecipi al programma Erasmus le attività di tirocinio vengono regolamentate come segue:
A – Lo studente svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus.
Se lo studente svolge il Tirocinio all’estero si ritiene “assolto” l’obbligo di frequenza al Laboratorio se:
- lo studente aggiorna il proprio docente/tutor con brevi relazioni mensili da inviare mezzo mail, sull’andamento del lavoro svolto presso la sede estera;
- produce una relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
La valutazione finale del laboratorio di guida al tirocinio sarà effettuata da parte del tutor del laboratorio sulla base della relazione dello studente tenendo conto della eventuale valutazione da parte del supervisore estero.
B – Lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio presso la sede Erasmus
Se lo studente non svolge il Tirocinio nella sede Erasmus e lo deve fare al rientro:
- lo studente effettua uno/due incontri individuali iniziali con il docente/tutor in cui predisporre quanto necessita per l’avvio del tirocinio e nei quali verranno forniti materiali, griglie ed eventuali testi di riferimento;
- invia brevi relazioni mensili sull’andamento del tirocinio che sarà svolto in Italia al di fuori del periodo in cui si tiene normalmente il laboratorio di guida al tirocinio;
- produce la relazione finale completa del tirocinio svolto.
Il Corso di Studi prevede un laboratorio interdisciplinare come attività formativa trasversale (3 Cfu di tipo F), presente nell’elenco degli insegnamenti Il laboratorio, per regolamento, prevede la frequenza obbligatoria per almeno i due terzi del totale delle ore.
