Learning outcomes

Il Master sarà alla sua decima edizione. Gli obiettivi formativi attuali sono definiti sulla base dell'esperienza consolidata nelle precedenti edizioni, dalla collaborazione con enti interessati/coinvolti nella formazione proposta dal Master, dei risultati conseguiti dai diplomati in termini di capacità progettuali e inserimento nel mondo del lavoro. Gli obiettivi formativi che si intendono raggiungere attraverso il Master in “Infanzia e movimento: lo sviluppo da 0 a 6 anni” per questa edizione sono:
1. Acquisizione al termine del percorso di studio di competenze esperte, nella promozione, progettazione e realizzazione innovativa di attività fisica per l’infanzia, nel coordinamento di gruppi di lavoro, nella comunicazione, nella creazione di nuovi ambienti di apprendimento motorio.
2. Acquisizione di competenze esperte nell’organizzazione di eventi di ogni tipo, pubblici e privati, per la promozione dell’attività fisica nell’infanzia. Sviluppo di competenze di progettazione, proposizione, gestione, coordinamento di attività motorie per lo sviluppo di competenze motorie, cognitive e salute, secondo le evidenze scientifiche internazionali e le linee guida internazionali sulla salute, con progetti adattati ai diversi contesti e committenti
3. Acquisizione di competenze per realizzare semplici ricerche scientifiche nell’ambito dello sviluppo motorio con conoscenza di metodologie qualitative e quantitative e competenze di valutazione delle attività motorie in ambito didattico.
4. Acquisizione di competenze nell’utilizzo di strumenti di osservazione standardizzati internazionale e di costruzione di propri strumenti per osservare e misurare capacità/attività motorie nell’infanzia.
5. Acquisizione di competenze collaborative con tutti gli attori coinvolti nelle attività motorie nell’infanzia.
Si fa presente che il Master è già attivo da 8 edizioni e nel 2021-22 sarà alla decima edizione. Alcune unità di apprendimento costituiranno CP attivati separatamente.

Professional profiles and employment and professional opportunities

Dall'analisi degli sbocchi professionali dei diplomati (più di 50 negli ultimi anni), dalle consultazioni avute con i responsabili di società di ambito sportivo e di dirigenti scolastici e del sistema sociale che collaborano con il master e dai dati ISTAT sulla crescente domanda di servizi per l’infanzia (Rapporto annuale ISTA 2014), risulta che le maggiori richieste di formazione specifica per la promozione dello sviluppo motorio nell’infanzia provengono da:
1- sistema scolastico (pubblico e privato) (classificazione ISTA CP2011 2.6.4.2);
2- sistema sportivo (CP2011 3.4.2.5 e 3.4.2.4); 3- ambito sempre più diffuso dell’offerta di attività ludico-motorie in ambito sociale e turistico (CP2011 3.4.5.1 e 5.4.4.2.). Il master offre accesso a tali professioni grazie alle competenze scientifiche e operative che trasmette, all’esperienza progettuale e realizzativa pratica svolta nel mondo del lavoro con project work e stages e per l’ambito scolastico 1 punto nelle graduatorie a termine.
 

Altre informazioni

In this Masters course, participants learn how to work with children from 0-6 years old using innovative, professional, evidence-based methods. Graduates of the course will be able to design and implement physical activities as well as qualitative and quantitative surveys in different areas (e.g. didactic, technical and methodological) of motor development in early childhood. They will be able to combine research and practice to develop targeted education through physical activity, while also giving due importance to the role of teachers and families.
The internship, the development of a project that could be presented at a school, sports club or local private or public institution, and the preparation of a final report in the form of a poster with public discussion will be integrated into the course in a personalised way through online activities and direct supervision by the scientific committee.
The course will guide participants to become innovative professionals who can: i) design and implement motor development activities for the 0-6 year old age group, based on their knowledge and scientifically researched methods; ii) communicate with children and their parents and successfully conduct group activities; iii) transform the skills acquired into productive activities.
The course uses blended learning, with compulsory attendance for at least 70% of the activities carried out face to face or online.

First-cycle degrees: Bachelor’s degree programme

First-cycle degrees are aimed at enabling students to achieve a command of general scientific methods and content, and to acquire specific professional knowledge.
Admission requirements: secondary school diploma after completing 13 years of study in total and passing the relevant State examination, or equivalent foreign qualification; admission may be subject to further assessment.
Duration: three years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 180 CFU; doing an internship and preparing a dissertation/thesis may also be required. Upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree, graduates may continue their studies by enrolling in a Master’s degree or other second-cycle degree programmes and courses.
Academic title: upon completion of a Bachelor’s degree (Laurea), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore”.

Second-cycle degrees: Master’s degree

Second-cycle degrees aim to provide students with an advanced training and knowledge to take on highly-skilled roles.
Admission requirements: applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree, or a foreign equivalent qualification; curricular admission requirements for each course may vary depending on each University.
Duration: two years.
Graduation: in order to obtain the degree, it is necessary to gain at least 120 CFU, as well as preparing and presenting a dissertation/thesis.
Academic title: upon completion of a Master’s degree (Laurea Magistrale), graduates are awarded the title of “Dottore magistrale”. Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees
Some courses (Medicine and Surgery, Veterinary Medicine, Dentistry and Dental Prosthetics, Pharmacy and Industrial Pharmacy, Architecture and Building Engineering-Architecture, Law, Primary Education) are offered as Single cycle/Combined Bachelor+Master’s degrees (Corsi di Laurea Magistrale a Ciclo Unico).

Other useful things

Crediti Formativi Universitari (CFU/ECTS credits): Italian university courses are based on the CFU system. 1 CFU is equal to 25 hours of study. The average annual academic workload for a full-time student is generally assumed to be 60 CFU. CFU and ECTS credits serve the same purpose and generally have the same value.
Degree class: Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes that have the same learning objectives and activities are grouped into “degree classes". The educational content of each programme is set autonomously by each university; however, universities are required to include certain educational activities (and the corresponding number of CFU credits) set at the national level. These requirements are established in relation to each degree class. Degrees in the same class have the same legal value.
Double/Joint degrees: the Italian universities may establish degree programmes in partnership with other Italian or foreign universities. Upon completion of these courses, graduates are awarded a joint or double/multiple degree, one from each Partner University.
