Teaching methods

Lectures, operational reproduction techniques such as demonstrations and exercises to refine technical and operational skills by reproducing a procedure, tests to verify the achievement of the objectives of the teaching units identified, supplementary activities and recovery of topics covered, analysis and studies of real cases, simulation techniques (role playing - role play) for the interpretation and analysis of behaviors and social roles in interpersonal relationships

Assessment methods

Final exam, single test, in oral form, preferably in person, through questions aimed at verifying the completeness of the preparation of the knowledge acquired relating to the teaching program and the ability to elaborate specific topics in an analytical and synthetic way, as well as simulation of practical techniques of work.

The physical presence at the lessons, although obviously not determining a lower evaluation, nevertheless does not allow, given the presence of fundamental exercises, a complete learning.

The test therefore allows the teacher to understand the ability to know (knowledge) and know-how (skills) as presented in the lessons and with the support of the material provided.


The purpose of the oral exam is to verify the student's ability to apply his or her knowledge and to make the necessary logical-deductive connections.

Graduation of the final grade: Preparation on a very limited number of topics covered in the course and analytical skills that emerge only with the help of the teacher, expressed in an overall correct language → 18-19;

Preparation on a limited number of topics covered in the course and ability to autonomous analysis only on purely executive matters, expression in correct language → 20-24;

Preparation on a large number of topics covered in the course, ability to make independent choices of critical analysis, mastery of specific terminology → 25-29;

Basically exhaustive preparation on the topics covered in the course, ability to make autonomous choices of critical analysis and connection, full mastery of specific terminology and ability to argue and self-reflection → 30-30L.

Teaching tools

Power Point presentations, photographic illustrations, videos, reference legislation, links to links for further information, illustrations on the blackboard, analysis of guidelines, as well as UNIBO platforms with a collection of material presented during the lessons.
