Learning outcomes

The course will provide students with a view of the methods and the techniques which is possible to make use of in the so-called longlife learning. Methods and techniques will be presented for the strengths and the weaknesses that they have, the aims for which they are adopted and the training objectives that they allow to reach. At the end of the course, students will know the methods and the techniques which is possible to find in literature, they will be able to master some of them (the ones that during the course they will have had the possibility to experiment) and will be able to assess opportunities and limits of them in the perspective of the different aims which is possible to reach with training.

Assessment methods and criteria

The exam is written and based on the deepened study of the texts. The written task comprises a certain number of open questions and closed questions so that the students can prove their preparation and the teacher can base his marks on a wide and representative sample of knowledge. I do not use a rigid and structured form of written exam, meaning that the closed questions sometimes are present and sometimes are not. The open questions are always present, generally in the number of 3. I generally give 10 points to each open question, so that the sum is 30. The "laude" depends on the way the students offer their answers, on the extent to which they are full and deep, and on the way the students show they are able to sustain some of their personal points of view. During the course, some examples of written tasks are shown so that the students can have an idea of the kind of task they are going to deal with for their exam.
