Learning objectives

For objectives of this course see attached file b of d.m. 616.
Knowledge and understanding skills: students need to know and understand the themes they have learned during lessons and know how to apply them Judgment autonomy: The student will have to develop the ability to think about the topics dealt with in the lesson Communicative Skills: Students must develop skills to understand and get involved in technical situations Ability to learn: the student will need to improve the ability to learn through the development of a technical protocol

Teaching methods

Oral lessons and practical exercitations. Lectures will be held on-site in compliance with safety standards, provided that further instructions on the ongoing health emergency are not implemented. Supporting material will be available on the specific, student-reserved platform (Elly) and will include slide presentations, audio-video aids or video-recording of the lectures. Moreover, the course will be held as lectures to Students either in the classroom (“presenza”) or in synchronous-streaming (“telepresenza”) on the Teams platform. Therefore, the opportunity for Student/Teacher interactions will be preserved both face to face and remotely, by the simultaneous use of the Teams platform.

Assessment methods and criteria

Oral examination.
In case of the persistence of the health emergency, the exams will be done remotely, as follows: remote oral questions, through the Teams platform (guide
