Examination Methods

The overall assessment of course learning will take place – for students/students/students attending and not – by analysing the results of two tests:
- PORTFOLIO OF STUDENT: It will be positively assessed if it respects explicit deliveries in the classroom and in the online space dedicated to teaching and presents personal reflections on the themes developed during the course and the processes activated. (up to 10 points);
- WRITTEN TRY: three questions of CONOSCENCE (each answer will be positively evaluated if correct, supported by evidence and supported by explicit references to the texts indicated as mandatory for examination) (up to 12 points); A question of COMPRENSIONE (the answer is positively evaluated if it highlights links between the various topics addressed and/or between these and concrete training contexts, real or simulated; it reflects in-depth ideas, contains operational insights and shows a critical and original thinking on the topics addressed) and a question of meta-reflection on the course (up to 8 points).

NB: Students who fail to submit the paper will have to answer a set of additional questions
