Learning outcomes

General aims: 1. knowing and understanding the psychological theories that can explain the fundamental processes for individuals to function in, and adapt to, their material and social environments; 2. knowing and understanding the pedagogical theories subsumed to learning processes and techniques for the training and development of individuals and of different working communities, and which take into account also to the processes of social and cultural inclusion; 3. applying pedagogical methodologies and techniques to the analysis of learning processes in vocational training and in the development of communities of practices; 4. choosing among, and applying, teaching methods and strategies that are suitable to response to personal and social needs, in diverse and complex training contexts. 5. Using legal, sociological, ethical and anthropological knowledge to the reading and understanding of diversity and migratory phenomena in order to favor and support processes of social and cultural inclusion. SPECIFIC TRAINING OBJECTIVES The course aims to provide the necessary theoretical and practical bases to analyse the conditions of social marginality and deviance and to assess the potentials of pedagogical interventions, both preventive and rehabilitative, in contexts of formal, non-formal and informal learning. At the end of the course students will be able to: know and understand the main factors affecting marginality and deviance of individuals and groups; contribute to the design of pedagogical interventions or to their improvement through the exercise of autonomous judgement and with appropriate communication styles.


The curriculum is structured in 4 modules; Each module covers preparatory topics for the following modules:

Module 1: Conceptual bases
• What is social pedagogy?
• Historical considerations on the development of social pedagogy
• Marginity and deviance
• Community and territory

Module 2: Academic Writing
• Introduction to writing
• Describe, analyze, and argue
• Search, validity and appropriateness of sources of information

Module 2: Focus on 20th century educators
• The teacher Alberto Manzi (1927-1997)
• The philosopher of education Piero Bertolini (1931-2006)
• The educator Ettore Gelpi (1933-2002)

Module 4: Designing educational interventions
• Formal learning contexts (eg school)
• Non-formal learning contexts (eg youth centers)
• Informal learning contexts (eg media)
• Closed communities (eg prison)


Teaching approach with Attending students consists of:
- frontal lessons devoted to the transmission of basic notions
- teacher-student interaction, devoted to the sharing and re-elaboration of previous knowledge, as well as the knowledge gained during the frontal lessons and the individual study
- projection and video viewing in the classroom
- work in small groups to be performed in the classroom, but with individual preparation / study by the students, according to the instructions given by the teacher.

Attending students are required to:
- ensure continuity of classroom attendance, and attend at least one lesson per week throughout the course,
- be present for the whole lesson (except under unforeseen circumstances).

The didactic approach with Non-attending students consists of:
- support for individual study and preparation for final examinations in meetings with the teacher, to be agreed at the request of the student (s), possibly during office hours.

All students (Attending and Non-attending) are required to enroll in the e-learning platform of the course in order to:
- have access to the teaching material that will be made available during the course,
- receive any updates and additional information about the course through your institutional email (@,
- access to the forum, where, in relation to teaching, the following can be posted: 1) general announcements and news by the teacher, and 2) requests for clarification and / or general information by the students.
