Type D and Type F activities

Una quota dei crediti corrispondenti all’attività formativa dell’intero biennio, determinata dal presente Regolamento in 12 (dodici) CFU, è riservata alla scelta autonoma da parte della/o studente. I crediti liberi a scelta della/o studente hanno lo scopo di offrire alla/o studente la possibilità di personalizzare il proprio percorso formativo permettendo di approfondire uno o più argomenti di particolare interesse legati al proprio percorso accademico. Questa scelta può essere orientata verso corsi/esami non seguiti/sostenuti in precedenza, verso altre attività (tirocinio, laboratori, tutorati, ulteriori competenze linguistiche, seminari/convegni – tutti preventivamente approvati dal Collegio Didattico di Filosofia).
Tra i 12 (dodici) crediti dovrà comunque essere presente almeno un’attività formativa erogata come esame universitario (con relativo voto in trentesimi), salvo nel caso in cui la/o studente decida di frequentare la Summer School Interdisciplinare di Dipartimento in Lingua Inglese “Human Sciences and Society” e di chiederne il riconoscimento, saturando così i 12 CFU in ambito D, oppure di estendere la durata della propria esperienza di Tirocinio curricolare e desideri vedersi riconosciuti i corrispondenti CFU in esubero (rispetto ai 6 previsti) in ambito D (senza che essi possano fare media), invece che fuori piano (vedasi la Nota 1 nelle Linee Guida Tirocinio Curricolare riportate nella relativa pagina web del CdS).
Tale riconoscimento in ambito D è possibile, da Regolamento di Ateneo, senza limitazioni (quindi per l’intero ammontare dei CFU previsti in questo ambito).
In conformità al dettato del D.M. 270/04 e alla luce delle raccomandazioni espresse dal D.M. 26 luglio 2007, capo 3 lettera n), la scelta, che non può essere predeterminata, deve comunque essere ispirata a coerenza col piano formativo della/o studente e sarà perciò soggetta a valutazione da parte del Collegio Didattico con riferimento all’adeguatezza delle motivazioni fornite dalla/o studente. Ciò vale, in special modo, per la richiesta di riconoscimento in ambito D dei CFU relativi al prolungamento dell’attività di Tirocinio: essa deve essere sostenuta da adeguate motivazioni che il Tutor accademico incaricato di seguire la/o studente tirocinante si riserva di esaminare e valutare congiuntamente alla Commissione Tirocini.
Si invitano inoltre le/gli studenti a rispettare le seguenti indicazioni per il completamento di tale ambito D:
- massimo 6 CFU relativi a competenze linguistiche (oltre a quelli previsti dal Piano di Studio);
- massimo 6 CFU di attività laboratoriale/esercitazioni;
- massimo 6 CFU di attività seminariale/convegni/cicli di incontri/formative in genere (sia accreditata dal Dipartimento di Scienze Umane che extrauniversitaria);
- non vengono valutate attività svolte in Erasmus che non siano state inserite nei Learning Agreement;
- vengono riconosciuti CFU in ambito D per attività formative universitarie organizzate da altri Dipartimenti dell’Ateneo di Verona o da altri Atenei solo per quelle attività che siano state oggetto (da parte del relativo Referente/Responsabile) di richiesta preventiva di accreditamento al Dipartimento di Scienze Umane e abbiano ricevuto l’approvazione di quest’ultimo.
In questa pagina lo studente potrà trovare delle guide operative, utili al completamento del proprio percorso universitario.
