GENERAL EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES OF THE QUALIFICATION COURSE

1. The intensive professional qualification course aims to create the conditions for a training experience that favors in each student the elaboration of a broader synthesis between their own professional experience and the cognitive and methodological elements, typical of the pedagogical sciences and of the other disciplines that operate in the field of educational sciences, which will be presented during the course.

2. Philosophy of care:
• Care as fundamental in human beings experience
• Directions of care
• Ethics of care
• Virtue ethics


ONLINE ACTIVITY
• Methodological introduction: in each learning activity, at least three levels of reality can be identified: a) learning the contents and the concepts connected to them; b) understanding of the processes underlying the contents and explaining the existential and argumentative links between them and the implications that follow; c) reflection on the more general existential meaning of what has been learned and understood.
• Activities to be carried out: to write a reflective text in order to reflect on professional experience read through the lens of care.
