M-PED/01 - PEDAGOGY, THEORIES OF EDUCATION AND SOCIAL EDUCATION

Period

Sem. 2A dal Feb 15, 2021 al Apr 1, 2021.

Learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding 1. To know and understand that education can also be thought of as the result of an "experience of interpretation" of the behavior of the educator by the educator. 2. To know in its various aspects what it means to "interpret"; to know the history of hermeneutics (not just philosophical) and to understand the necessity of its linguistic-conceptual reformulation in pedagogical terms. 3. To understand that the hermeneutical approach to education requires us to think of hermeneutics as an existential dimension of the human person (Gadamer) which is capable of symbolic thinking (Ricoeur). This ability is an integral part of the professional competence of the pedagogic work. Applying knowledge and understanding 1. To possess a level of knowledge of hermeneutics that will adequately contextualize it in the context of its history, with particular reference to the authors and to the modern and contemporary currents that have characterized its evolution, and to know how to apply it in understanding educational contexts in which educators and especially pedagogic work. 2. To know how to "translate" the acquired learning in the ability to understand, interpret, explain and communicate both a specific educational experience, both "texts" and works having an educational value (e.g. books, paintings, images, films, other artistic expressions and literary). 3. Knowing how to interrogate the classics of the history of pedagogy, interpreting its contents in the light of today's educational and / or pedagogical problems, thus integrating knowledge, apparently far from its historical and cultural horizon, into its educational and professional background.

Program

The teaching program is divided into four parts, closely related to each other.
FIRST PART: knowledge and understanding of the essential contents of pedagogical hermeneutics
─ Education also has a hermeneutic component, that is, an interpretative one.
─ The etymological, conceptual, structural and existential meaning of hermeneutics.
─ Hermeneutics as a method and as a way of being and relating to reality.
─ From the pedagogical need to reflect on the hermeneutic problem in education to the awareness of a "applied" hermeneutics to educational practice and pedagogical knowledge.

SECOND PART: birth, historical development and cognitive deepening of hermeneutics
─ The hermeneutic problem in Platonic, Aristotelian and Hellenistic thought.
─ The intrinsically hermeneutic character of the Jewish and Christian religious experience.
─ From Protestant theological hermeneutics to nineteenth-century philosophical hermeneutics (Schleiermacher, Dilthey).
─ From the interpretation of the written text to the interpretation of the speeches and of the "experiences" and their expressions.
─ Hermeneutics in the twentieth century and some of its main articulations: a) in Germany (Heidegger, Gadamer); in France (Ricoeur); in Italy (Pareyson).

THIRD PART: reflection on the areas of intervention of pedagogical hermeneutics
─ Reading and pedagogical interpretation of the classics of the history of education and pedagogy.
─ Vision and pedagogical interpretation of works with a high communicative expression (painting, music, cinema, dance, play, etc.).
─ The awareness of the transversal presence of hermeneutics in the human sciences: hermeneutics as a cognitive "paradigm" and its implications.

FOURTH PART: "doing hermeneutics" applied to education. through practical exercises.
─ Exercise of hermeneutic reflection in relation to concrete educational situations.
─ Exercise of pedagogical interpretation applied to selected texts.

ORGANIZATION OF THE EDUCATIONAL ACTIVITY
The lessons will take place keeping in mind some didactic modalities that will alternate according to the needs related to the program:
─ the "front" lesson, for the presentation of the conceptually most important or most difficult contents, also with the help of slides.
─ the “participatory and dialoguing” lesson, useful for encouraging interventions, asking questions and giving space to short debates on the topics dealt with from time to time;
─ The lesson in "e-learning" mode; to be specified and programmed, if necessary.

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.
