BUILT HERITAGE MONITORING AND CONTROL AIMED AT A CONSERVATION STRATEGY
The course is composed of traditional lectures (taught class), also with Powerpoint
presentations, and reviews.
During the course, also some seminars with external lecturers will be held, to
inspect more deeply specific issues.
For the applied part, the students will be divided in groups (3 to 5 people). Each
group will develop a restoration and strengthening design on a real historical
building and will be followed by the teacher with periodic reviews. The reviews are
made in groups, on printed material prepared by the students.
At the middle of the course and at the end, the printed material must be handed
down to the teacher.
Moreover, during the course there will be two collective reviews, one at the end of
the knowledge path and one at the end of the course: in these occasions, each
group will present (with Powerpoint or similar) its own work progress to the teacher
and to the other students. These occasions are important both to exercise the
communication skills of the students and to exchange and compare experiences
among the different groups.
Assessment methods and criteria
During the course, the students will have to hand down their work twice to the
teacher, in order to check and possibly correct the design process: one at the end of
the knowledge phase and one at the end of the course.
Moreover, the two collective reviews, with public presentation of the designs, will
allow a first evaluation of the correctness of speech and of the communicative skills.
These intermediate checks, although are not directly linked to the final grades, are
in any case fundamental to demonstrate the profitable attendance to the course.
The single module has no autonomous judgment, but the learning assessment will
be made altogether in the final exam of the Laboratory.
As for all the laboratories, attending the courses is compulsory.
