Learning outcomes

Education, teaching and formation are fields strongly marked by the female presence, but the language, the symbolic, the knowledge, the organisational and managerial structures seem to reflect still neuter-masculine paradigms. These are based on hierarchizing dualisms embodied in degrees of power (nature/culture, public/private, production/reproduction, rational/emotional, object/subject, normal/abnormal). Urgent becomes to assume a posture of thought and action that takes into account the fact that the world is one but inhabited by women and men, with the variety of their unique human experiences and sexual orientation, and with expectations, desires, capabilities and educational needs that cannot be homologated.
We will start from a basic idea of the feminism of sexual difference: the idea that women should not be treated as a disadvantaged and discriminated social group, to protect, support, and make it more equal to men through equality/equal opportunities politics and "pedagogies of gender; but, on the contrary, that the freedom of women, earned in the relations between women, has changed profoundly, strating from the relationship with themselves, the relationship with men and with their historic buildings, and radically rethinks the world (culture, knowledge, forms of social ties, economy, politics etc.) betting on a change of civilization, more livable and fair for all.
As in other research fields, also education and pedagogical knowledge are confronted with a post-patriarchal time, characterised by disorientation and ambivalences, but also by new awareness, subjectivity and transformative practices. The course will initiate the students towards these profound rearrangements in the view, language, and in the interpretative paradigms.
The course aims to make consciously operating the free sense of sexual difference, for a new civilization of relations, in educational research, practice education and training, planning and organization of interventions and educational services, in counselling to individuals and groups.


Main attitudes of thought and action to be acquired:
- Talking is never neuter: sexualisation of the language, subjectivity and symbolic competence;
- Starting from oneself: the thought and knowledge from experience in education and in the pedagogic research;
- Relations at centre: practice of relations, disparity relations, care;
- Power and authority: the maximum of authority with the minimum of power

The subjects of the class are articulable into several interesting directions for pedagogical reflection. We propose the following:

1. New family and relational constellations. LGBT parenting;
2. Men and women, male and female children in the school and in services for children: what’s new?
3. The male issue and the phenomenon of violence;
4. The female competence in aid relations;
5. The generative-maternal principle in the organisational culture and in leadership.

Examination Methods

The course offers a plenty of didactic activities: frontal lectures, meetings, small groups’ researches, discussions of case study and ongoing projects.

Oral exam for non-attendant students.
Depending on the number of participants, the attending students can replace the oral exam with an paper of small group presented and discussed in the classroom, in which the individual contribution is recognizable, with the aim to explore the themes proposed. Will be given guidance on how to organize and spread the paper. Proposals for the work of the groups will gather March 24; exposures in the classroom will take place in May according to a schedule to be agreed together.

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

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.
