Didactic methods

COURSE DELIVERY METHODS
Lectures are conducted in presence of the Professor, and they are predominantly frontal.
Some sessions include the presence of guest speakers and experts. Every lecture is recorded and made available for a limited time on Moodle.

TEACHING METHODS
Lectures are predominantly frontal, with moments of discussion, case studies and read-aloud sessions.
PLEASE NOTE: lectures cover the fundamental parts of the programme. Students are expected to autonomously complete the required reading list.
The standard lesson plan will be integrated with supplementary materials, shared by the Professor on Moodle (e.g. integrative video lectures, video tutorials, research material, links).

Learning assessment procedures

The exam consists of a two-hour written test with a mix of semi-open and open questions. Each student is also expected to produce a short report about a book (chosen from a selection provided by the professor), based on the criteria and techniques discussed during the course.
The present programme is valid for one academic year 2023/2024, i.e. until September 2024.
There is no difference between attending and distance-learning students, but attendance is strongly recommended, whenever possible, so that students may experience and contribute to the workshop-based teaching.

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

Evaluation criteria

The exam covers the contents of the required readings. Students are expected to select relevant contents and produce a clear and exhaustive analysis and discussion.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade corresponds to the weighted average of the grades received in the written examination and in the workshop. 1 / 1.3 extra marks may be added for a complete and relevant book report. No distinction is made between attending students and non-attending students.

eTwinning

Il Corso di SFP di Verona fa parte del Gruppo Europeo per la formazione eTwinning per i futuri insegnanti – Initial Teacher Education (ITE). Seminari di presentazione della piattaforma e delle sue potenzialità, introduzione alla comunità e/o laboratori sull’uso della stessa sono proposti annualmente come parte integrante dei Laboratori di Lingua Inglese per la Professionalità Docente, e quindi come parte dell’offerta formativa; per il II anno anche con attività progettuale in lingua inglese, studente-studente o a piccoli gruppi.

Per il I anno, a partire dall’ A.A. 2017/2018 è stato realizzato con il supporto dell’USR Veneto e la collaborazione delle ambasciatrici eTwinning un incontro seminariale di presentazione della comunità e piattaforma eTwinning, come parte del Laboratorio di Lingua Inglese per la Professionalità docente. Gli studenti svolgono attività di ricerca e reperimento materiale nel portale eTwinning, studiano alcuni progetti considerati “buone pratiche” e si confrontano con una breve attività in piccolo gruppo sui primi passi di introduzione e orientamento ad un progetto eTwinning.  Solitamente sono coinvolti circa un centinaio di studenti.

Per il II anno, a partire dall’A.A. 2020/2021, è stato introdotto un Laboratorio eTwinning (12 ore – 1CFU) di progettualità didattica in lingua inglese. Gli studenti svolgono attività individuali all’interno della Comunità volte a costruire una rete di partner e cogliere ogni potenzialità offerta dalla piattaforma. Inoltre, viene proposta una simulazione progettuale, in piccoli gruppi, dall’introduzione dei partner alla valutazione e disseminazione dei risultati di un progetto eTwinning. Solitamente partecipano circa un centinaio di studenti. Al termine del modulo è richiesto un portfolio digitale in lingua inglese. I futuri docenti esercitano contemporaneamente competenze linguistiche, digitali e sociali facilmente riutilizzabili nella professione futura.

Per il V anno, a partire dal AA 2022/2023, è stato introdotto, all'interno del Laboratorio di Lingua Inglese, un Laboratorio eTwinning  di progettualità didattica con un altro ITE (12 ore – 1CFU).

Nell'a.a. 2022/2023 è stata attivata e realizzata una collaborazione con SFP - Università di Cagliari.

Nell'a.a. 2023/2024 si è attivata una collaborazione con l'Università di Castilla-La Mancha (Spagna).

Le attività realizzate sono state presentate durante il Coordinamento Nazionale  eTwinning ITE 

  • a Firenze il 17 e 18 marzo 2022 
  • e a Lecce il 15 e 16 maggio 2023
