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.

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

Examination Methods

Learning will be assessed as follows:
- for attendant students, through a preliminary written test and through the preparation of a digital educational product on the HR sector. Further information will be provided during the first lesson
- for non-attendant students (who have not undergone self-evaluation tests) a written examination.

The written examination is meant to verify the knowledge of the topics of the programme and the ability to apply logical schemes to various problems.
The examination may potentially concern all the topics of the programme. The examination consists of open-ended and closed-ended questions related to the topics of the course, and inspired by the discussions that have taken place during the classes, with the use of dedicated educational material. Each group of questions is associated with a score and a final evaluation with marks out of 30.
ERASMUS students must contact the professor at the beginning of the course as to agree on the educational methods and examinations.

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