Course unit content

The principle aim of the course is to define and deepen (through practical examples) the characteristics of a social plan.

Key concepts of the course will be: the difference between the project about "the single case" and the project as “protocol of collaboration” or as “policy development” (with specific reference to social work projects in the “third sector”), the various stages of a project and its drafting and evaluation.
