Learning outcomes

On the whole, this course is aimed to: (a) provide students with theoretical and instrumental knowledge about observational methods and techniques that can be profitably used in both research and educational practice; (b) foster the familiarization with the main techniques for observing children’s behavior; (c) offer a context to develop competences in designing and implementing research projects based on observational methods.

The specific aims, expressed as expected learning results, are the followings:
1 - Knowledge and understanding of observation as research method and technique to collect data, of the main issues related to observational process, and the different theoretical perspectives which rely on observation as main research method.
2 - Theoretical and instrumental knowledge of the different observational techniques based on direct and indirect observation, data analysis, and evaluation of reliability and validity of observational data.
3 - Ability to apply the acquired knowledge and skills either in a research context or in educational context.

Program

The course is organized in two parts. The first one, focused on theories, includes an introduction to observation either as a research method or as a technique to collect data, a discussion on basic epistemological issues related to observation, and the outline of the main theoretical perspectives that use observation as a main research method.
The second, larger part focused on techniques, includes the presentation and the exemplifying application of the main observational techniques (narrative report, check-list, coding system, rating scale, Q-sort), some “indirect observation” techniques (questionnaires for parents and teachers, sociometric techniques), and an introduction to data analysis.

Didactic methods
Lessons will be structured in theoretical presentations, discussions, exercises, and video observation and analysis aimed to apply the different observational techniques. Some lessons will be devoted to lab activities.

Exam texts
The preparation for the exam includes the study of an handbook of observational methods (1), a book on techniques and tools to be used in educational contexts (2), a little book on descriptive data analysis (3), and a research article based on an observational method (4):
1) Aureli, T., e Perucchini, P. (2014). Osservazione e valutazione del comportamento del bambino. Bologna: Il Mulino.
2) Elia, L., e Cassibba, R. (2009). Valutare le competenze sociali. Strumenti e tecniche per l’età prescolare. Roma: Carocci.
3) Rossi, G. (2010, II reprint). Statistica descrittiva per psicologi. Roma: Carocci (Le Bussole).
4) A research article based on an observational method, selected according to personal interest among articles published either in Developmental Psychology or Child Development (both available on-line and in Frinzi library).
Finally, not attending students are also recommended to practice by using the following book of exercises: Cassibba, R., e Salerni, N. (2004). Osservare i bambini: Tecniche ed esercizi. Roma: Carocci.

Examination Methods

Oral exam, possibly integrated with a written exercise. Requests to describe (to assess knowledge), to discuss (to assess understanding and ability to relate different pieces of information), and to apply the acquired knowledge to specific educational contexts (to assess the ability to translate knowledge in practice) will be included in the exam.
Evaluation will be focused on:
- knowledge;
- understanding and ability to elaborate knowledge;
- ability to apply the acquired knowledge and skills to specific contexts of research and educational practice;
- ability to communicate in a clear and effective way, also by using an adequate terminology.

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.
