Due to the protracted conditions of uncertainty caused by the effects of Covid-19, the course will take place in e-learning mode using both synchronous and asynchronous teaching tools.
In the first part of the course (about 50% of the total hours), the activities will include: (i) live streaming lessons, created using the platforms licensed for use by the University (Teams and Zoom); (ii) prerecorded lessons, the link to which will be made available on the Elly website; (iii) any other materials and in-depth activities.
The second part (about 50% of the total hours) will instead be dedicated to the presentation of the students' works, organized in small groups, elaborated on the basis of bibliographic and documentary indications agreed with the teacher. Presentations will take place online, using the platforms licensed for use by the University (Teams and Zoom).
After the first part of the course there will be an intermediate test, which will take place online in oral form
The final grade, calculated in 30 points, will be the sum of the marks of the two parts of the exam which are worth 15 points each
All the didactic materials used will be available on the Elly portal.
Assessment methods and criteria
There are two ways to pass the exam:
(1) Intermediate verification test + Online presentation
Intermediate verification test:
Knowledge and understanding will be assessed through an interview.
This part of the exam will have a value of 50%.
Classroom presentations will be assessed on the quality of the following elements:
a) originality and innovativeness of the work (ability to develop the proposed theme in an original way with respect to the literature and documentation used).
b) clarity and communicative effectiveness of the slides (style, language).
c) quality and clarity of the abstract (in presenting the objectives, the sources used, the results obtained).
d) consistency between the sources used, the analysis and the proposed summary.
e) coherence between research questions and proposed analysis (example: if we intend to study the quality of the leather of the shoes worn, we cannot then analyze the cotton of the shirt). This part of the exam will have a value of 50%.
(2) Single oral exam
At the end of the course there will be an on-line oral exam
The answers will be evaluated in the light of the ability to express independent judgment, critical learning ability and to make transversal connections between different topics.
The ability to communicate will be assessed by verifying the adequacy and effectiveness of the language used; the willingness to clarify the meaning of the terms and concepts used will also be ascertained.
The above procedures for passing the exam are valid for all the appeals of the winter session of the academic year 2020-2021. If the health conditions make it possible, starting with the spring exams, we will return to the examination methods in presence, with operational procedures that will be promptly communicated to the students.
