Objectives (in agreement with the Dublin descriptors);
• Knowledge and understanding:
to complete the acquisition, at a basic level, of the: a) the ability to interpret and evaluate the structure, the physical properties and the reactivity of organic molecules; b) the thermodynamic and kinetic aspect of organic reactions and their mechanisms, also for what concerns biomolecules and material science.
• Applying knowledge and understanding:
students will be stimulated to integrate their theoretical knowledge with competences acquired during the classroom lessons and exercises and of the practical experiences in the organic chemistry lab.
• Making judgments:
through a continuous and interactive discussion among themselves and with the teachers, both in the classroom and in the laboratory, students will be accompanied to gradually develop the ability to understand concepts of increasing difficulties and methods to tackle complex organic chemistry problems
• Learning skills:
through a correct use of the scientific and technical language employed during the frontal theoretical lessons, the two hours/week of tutorial and guided exercises, tools to gradually implement the ability of Students to apprehend concepts of increasing complexity will be suggested.
• Communication skills:
an important objective of this course is to accompany all students to acquire a rigorous disciplinary language through which, not only to learn the discipline, but also to efficiently transmit their knowledge and skills either to experts in the field and experts of contiguous disciplines.
