Teaching methods

The course will be divided into different thematic modules that involve the use of lectures and classroom discussion of the issues addressed.

Assessment methods and criteria

The test consisted in a 40-minute written exam with two open questions which, in addition to assessing the knowledge and skills acquired, will allow you to evaluate the autonomy of judgment and the ability for critical reflection. Each answer is evaluated from 0 to 15 points (0 = no answer; 3 = serious errors; 6 = answer with some error or conceptual inaccuracy; 9 = sufficient presence of the requested contents but without critical re-elaboration; 12 = mastery of the contents, good critical re-elaboration and expository clarity; 15 = excellent content accuracy, clarity of presentation and ability to argue and re-elaborate in a critical way). The overall evaluation, expressed out of thirty, derives from the sum of the evaluations of the individual answers.
