Period

Sem. 1A dal Sep 26, 2022 al Nov 5, 2022.

Learning objectives

General aims: 1) Knowing and undertanding the psychological theories that explain the fundamental processes related to the functioning and adaptation of the individual to the physical and social environment; 2) Applying the theories related to the functioning of individuals, groups and organizations to the understanding and analysis of learning phenomena and of personal and social change; Specific training objectives: The course aims at providing the theoretical and methodological framework necessary to understand the neurobiological correlates of human behavior and cognitive functions. Through the study of the main techniques and methods to investigate the neuronal activity (EEG, fMRI and TMS) and human behavior, the teaching also aims at providing the tools to evaluate and analyze the functional changes in the individual. At the end of the course, the student should prove the ability to link the main biological and neuronal mechanisms to the functional and adaptation processes of the individual to the physical and social environment.  

Prerequisites and basic notions

Being a first year course, first semester, there are no specific prerequisites other than those required for access to the degree course

In addition, for each topic discussed during the lessons, the reference will be provided to the chapters in which that topic is described. Additional materials will be provided on the e-learning platform of the University.
Throughout the academic year, a student reception service is available, with a weekly fixed schedule.
Suggested textbooks

Bibliography

Visualizza la bibliografia con Leganto, strumento che il Sistema Bibliotecario mette a disposizione per recuperare i testi in programma d'esame in modo semplice e innovativo.

Didactic methods

Lessons will be held in person. There will therefore be no links to follow the lessons in streaming and video recordings. Recovery materials, such as slides and reference articles, will be made available in moodle to allow absent students to recover individual lessons.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam consists for all students of one written test with 31 closed questions and multiple choice answers. The written test is intended to ensure knowledge and understanding of the topics addressed in the course and covers all the topics discussed during the lessons.
Additional information: For students of Psychological Sciences for Training and Professional Development, this is a compulsory exam (not optional). It is not possible to attend the exam in advance. Only those students who have this teaching in their academic career and are regularly registered to the call, can attend the exam.

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

Evaluation criteria

The test serves to evaluate the knowledge acquired and the ability to connect the various topics. 1 point will be awarded for each correct answer. The errors and the answers not given are worth 0. The test grade will be expressed in 30ths.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade is made up of the sum of the correct answers.

Stage e Tirocini

Le attività che ci si aspetta il/la tirocinante curriculare in Scienze psicologiche per la formazione svolga presso gli enti che lo/la ospitano riguardano principalmente attività di affiancamento nei seguenti ambiti:

  1. Formazione, sviluppo, innovazione e gestione delle risorse umane;
  2. Orientamento scolastico e professionale;
  3. Ricerca, selezione e valutazione psicologica del personale.

Sono ritenuti ambiti adeguati le diverse agenzie per il lavoro, le agenzie di formazione, le agenzie di orientamento, le società di consulenza e tutti gli enti, le associazioni, le aziende, le imprese e, in generale, le organizzazioni che al loro interno operano attività di ricerca, selezione e valutazione psicologica del personale, attività di formazione, sviluppo, innovazione e gestione delle risorse umane e attività di orientamento scolastico e professionale. Anche enti di ricerca e Università dove si conducono studi e indagini su questi temi sono ambiti ritenuti adeguati.
Lo/la studente/essa sarà seguito/a da un tutor accademico e da un tutor aziendale. Alle attività di tirocinio sono attribuiti 9 CFU (pari a 225 ore).
Il tutor aziendale deve essere un laureato in psicologia anche non iscritto all’albo.
