Examination Methods

The learning assessment will be made through a written examination lasting two hours with:
- 8 multi-choice questions each one worth 1 point maximum (0 point if the answer is wrong or absent, 0,5 if only partially correct, 1 point if correct).
- 2 structured questions each one worth 2 points max. (0 points if the answer is wrong, up to 1,5 points, if only partially correct, 2 point if correct),
- 2 open questions; each one worth up to 3 points maximum according to the following criteria: correct answer which manteins itself inside the given space, is effectively deduced and supported by explicit references to the texts,
- 1 essay question to evaluate deep knowledge: the answer will be positively valued if, also in the suitable limits, it will allow to underline connections among the topics and between these and concrete educational contexts, to express deepen personal ideas and to articulate an original critical thought (up to 8 points),
- 1 brief essay question to evaluate the metacognition: the answer will be positively valued if, also in the suitable limits, it will show awareness about the couse and the activated processes (up to 4 points).

Method of assessment of learing outputs
As output of the group work that will be carried out in the classroom, each student will be asked to produce a paper which, following the standards of scientific publications, presents one of the techniques and strategies in depth. Each work will be sent (anonymously) to two students, who will be asked to draw up a peer review sheet on the received paper.
At the final evaluation of each student will contribute: a) the evaluation of the elaborate by the teacher; b) the evaluation of the peer review sheet that the student has drawn; c) the final feedback collected in a written form.

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.

Dal prossimo AA 2022/2023 è previsto un Laboratorio eTwinning (12 ore – 1CFU) di progettualità didattica con un altro ITE, parte del Laboratorio di Lingua Inglese V.

Le attività realizzate sono state presentate nell’Incontro di coordinamento eTwinning ITE – “eTwinning per i futuri docenti” a Firenze il 17 e 18 marzo 2022 https://etwinning.indire.it/supporto-e-formazione/formazione-online/materiali-ite/
