KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
The main objective of the course is to provide the student with the tools necessary for an advanced understanding of the role of nutrition in human health. The first part of the course is dedicated to the deepening of issues related to food hygiene. The second part is aimed at clarifying the relationships between nutrition and pathology. For a better understanding, students will be directly involved through the analysis of case studies.
ABILITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
The didactic objective consists in obtaining the knowledge necessary for a critical analysis of the relationship between nutrition and human health from a hygienic point of view. The topics covered during the lectures are also addressed through the analysis of scientific articles and case studies. This activity, which provides for the active collaboration of the students, aims to increase not only their critical analysis skills but also their ability to apply the acquired notions both in the field of applied research and in the world of work.
AUTONOMY OF JUDGMENT
The course aims to increase the ability to critically analyze the most current knowledge concerning the complex relationship between food, nutrition and health
The articulation of the course includes classroom discussion activities aimed at developing students' aptitude for using the scientific skills acquired to support their arguments.
The critical analysis of scientific articles and case studies both during the lessons and during the oral exam, allows the student to develop communication skills both in a group context and at an individual level.
The continuous evolutions of scientific research and in particular in the field of human nutrition require a continuous updating of skills. For this reason, the course aims to provide the autonomy necessary for the achievement of a wider knowledge and for the alignment of skills with the progress of research in the field of food hygiene and human nutrition.
