Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding 1. To know and understand the structural relation between the character of Socrates and the practice of maieutic dialogue. 2. To know and understand the pedagogical relevance of the classical "paideia", in particular the how it is described and practiced by Socrates in the Platonic dialogues and in the Socratic literature. 3. Knowing and understanding several fundamental elements of the Socratic dialogue: the search for meaning, irony, refutation, paradox, the exhortation to self-care and to the value of life within the "polis". Applying knowledge and understanding 1. Understanding the theoretical meaning of the Socratic dialogue in the contemporary ways of communication, focusing on issues of both continuity and discontinuity ad to the problems involved. 2. Rethinking and reformulating the educational dialogue, as a commonly understood today, in the light of the Socratic practice of dialogue, as presented in the Platonic dialogues and in the Socratic literature. 3. Rethinking the professional profile and lifestyle of the educator and pedagogist by looking at the way Socrates thinks and acts in the Platonic dialogues and the Socratic literature.

Program

Title and content of the course: "Paideia and Socratic dialogue".

The course tackles the educational strategies implied in the Socratic dialogue (questioning, examination, refutation, care of the self, irony, maieutics, logic, and dialectics) in the first-generation Socratics (especially in Plato, but also in Aristippus, Aeschines, Phaedo, and Xenophon). We will investigate the lines of continuity and discontinuity between the dialogue practiced by Socrates and the Greek notion of Paideia, with particular reference not only to the life of the Athenian polis, but also to the reception and application of the Socratic dialogue in contemporary educational practices such as the Philosophy for Children, the Cooperative Learning and the Problem-Based Learning.
The course will provide a shared reading of dialogical units drawn from Socratic literature: students will be involved in discussing the positions held by the characters in the text and, where possible, in applying the educational tenets of the Socratic dialogue to concrete situations.

TEXTS TO BE READ FOR THE ORAL EXAM:
A) L. Napolitano, Il dialogo socratico, Milano, Mimesis 2018 (the student will choose one modern author in the first part of the book; the second part of the book should be read entirely).
B) Course reserve:
1. Dialogical units of the first-generation Socratics Aristippus, Aeschines, Phaedo, and Xenophon.
2. W. Jaeger, chapter on 'Socrates' included in Id., Paideia, vol. III (Bompiani, Milano 2003).
3. L. Mortari, Conoscere se stessi per aver cura di sé, in: "Studi sulla formazione," 2 (2008), pp. 45-58.
The course reserve is available at the copy shop ateneo æmme edizioni, Lungadige Porta Vittoria, 37.

Non-attending students will bring the same texts as attending students, except for the volume by L. Napolitano "Il dialogo socratico," which will be read in its entirety.

Examination Methods

Teaching method: The course will be held in accordance with the provisions on COVID-19 issued by the University of Verona. The course includes lessons and seminars in which texts will be read and discussed. Attendance is therefore useful, but not mandatory. Given the unpredictability of the health emergency, lessons will be recorded via panopto/e-learning/zoom and uploaded on the Moodle platform. In case of specific provisions issued by the University of Verona, these lessons may eventually replace the teaching in presence.

Office hour: Throughout the academic year, the instructor is available either in his room, or via e-mail, or via Zoom/Skype.

Evaluation method: The student will be interviewed orally or via Zoom (depending on the developments of the health emergency). Students can choose a topic from which they can start their exam (such choice must be communicated to the teacher by e-mail at least one week before the date of the exam).

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.
