Teaching methods

Conventional Lessons, seminars and workshop integrated with a visit to a musems and temporary exhibitions; paper on exhibition project 

The method used is that of lectures; upon completion will be activated seminars on topics and specific issues. The approach to discipline will be supplemented with visits to exhibitions and museums. During classes students will be invited to discuss the main issues and deepen one of the favorite topics with suggested readings by the teacher; students will be required in order to verify the knowledge and application of museological tools learned, to develop and propose a project ceiling, on a topic agreed, even applying it tools and three-dimensional models for designing outfits. We recommend the frequency. At the end of the course will be given presentations in PP of the lessons, as guidelines for the preparation of the examen.

The frequency is recommended, in how much important to understand the complexity of the discipline and as orientation in sight of the examination.

Assessment methods

Oral examination, and to discuss one's written paper, for evaluation of the degree of theoretical knowlewdge, critical talent in the discipline, analisys of the archaeological exhibitions, museums, archaeological parks, and the museal planning talent.

Specifically, it requires knowledge of : 1 ) the theoretical and practical foundations of the discipline ; 2 ) the institution's history museum ; 3 ) the museum communication; 4 ) forms of exhibition in the archaeology field . Other aspects will be studied at the discretion of the student.

This usually consists of questions, some  pertaining to  the overview lecture part and reading,  and others related to specific topics examined in the course. The examination is intended to assess the level of knowledge and understanding gained by  students.

The assessment will thus consider the student's:
- knowledge and understanding of the topics covered;
- ability to summarise and analyse themes and concepts;
- familiarity with the terminology associated with the subject and his ability to use it effectively.

Top marks will be awarded to a student displaying an ability to provide an overall understanding of the topics discussed during the lectures, combined with a critical approach to the material and a confident and effective use of the appropriate terminology

Average marks will be awarded to a student who has memorized the main points of the material and is able to summarise them satisfactorily and provide an effective critical commentary, while failing to display a complete command of the appropriate terminology.

A student will be deemed to have failed the exam if he displays significant errors in his understanding and failure to grasp the overall outlines of the subject, together with a poor command of the appropriate terminology.

The exam sessions are monthly (except August) and distributed approximately between 15 and 20 of each month.

The students can enroll in the examination through the system Almaesami.

Teaching tools

To use in during to the lessons: slides projector,presentasion (PP), CD-ROM, DVD and photocopies; presentation (PP) is at students disposisional, and the technical schedule for  the final examen paper. 

They will use visual aids (video projector and direct viewing of presentations in computer graphics , CD - Rom and DVD ) , but also any paper documents to facilitate the understanding and the student's approach to the matter . At the end of the lessons we will be given presentations in PP as guidelines for the preparation of the examination and the data model to be used for the preparation of the final thesis .
