Examination Methods

Teaching methods: lectures and group work (debate) on the issues.

Evaluation methods for attending students. There are two written tests: one at the end of the general part and a second one at the end of the course.

- First test: three open questions on the most relevant dynamics of change identified by A. Giddens and C. Taylor

- Second test: critical analysis of a newspaper article (weekly or monthly) that summarizes a socially relevant process or problem, in order to demonstrate independence of judgment with respect to the topics proposed and developed within the course.

At the end of each test the teacher proposes a grade and then a final grade given by the average of the two individual assessments: the student can accept the final grade proposed or ask to make an oral integration.
Assessment methods for non-attending students: Oral exam.
In the oral assessment the following knowledge and skills will be certified:
- knowledge of the most relevant dynamics of reflective modernity;
- ability to stand in the different perspectives of analysis (the micro level of interpersonal relationships, the meso level of relationships between groups, the macro level of social imaginary,) to thematize the social changes in progress (to demonstrate to have understood the prospects for analysis)
- ability to develop autonomy of judgment with respect to the themes proposed and developed within the course, keeping in mind the different theories and perspectives.

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.
