Summary

For many years, I have been lecturing in different areas of sports studies for example on individual sports, racquet sports and physical training, theory and methodology, biomechanics at various universities in Italy (Bologna, Rimini, Rome) as well as in Kosovo and Malta.

I am also the official lecturer for the “Scuola dello Sport CONI”, specialized in: Talent Identification, Test and evaluation, Monitoring and planning, Strength and conditioning, Match analysis in team and individual sport. Here, I have organised many seminars on the topic of identification, selection, monitoring and developing talents in sports.

A part from lecturing, since 2007, I have dedicated myself also to research activities. This has allowed me to publish numerous articles in international journals on topics such as match analysis, biomechanics and others (full list of publications in annex 2).

In the context of my experience in sports pedagogy, I am currently a member of the project team of a project called “PlaySport” which aims at teaching sports and English in an integrated way. The output of this project will be a manual for teachers.

I hold a degree in Exercise and Sports Science (2007) as well as a Master in Athletic and Physical Training (2008) from the Faculty of Exercise and Sports Science of Bologna University, Italy.

In addition, I hold a PhD in “Discipline delle attività motorie e sportive”, ciclo XXIV, Settore concorsuale di afferenza 05-L1, settore scientifico disciplinare M-EDF/02 from the Faculty of Exercise and Sports Science of Bologna University, Italy.

Furthermore, I am a long standing coach in high level table tennis achieving success at national and international level.

Highlights of professional lecturing experience

University Lecturer:

Since 2010 I have been lecturing in Italy, Kosovo and Malta in different areas of sports studies, some highlights below (full list in annex 1):

  1. Physical training, theory and methodology” at the Faculty of Exercise and Sports Science of Bologna University, Italy

  2. “Strength and Conditioning in practice” at the Faculty of Exercise and Sport Science of Bologna University (in Bologna and Rimini), Italy

  3. Teaching, Coaching and Officiating Individual Sports” at the Institute of Physical Education and Sport (Malta)

  4. “Match Analysis in racquet sports” for the course of Performance Analysis at the University of Bologna for the Master degree students

  9. In 2013 I lectured on Table Tennis for a post-graduate level training of trainers programme in physical education and sport. This was in the context of an EU-funded project managed by the European Union office to Kosovo and implemented by a consortium led by Hulla & Co Human Dynamics KG

Lecturer for CONI:

Since 2015 I am organising the “Talent Project” for CONI, Italy. This consists in testing and evaluating the best athletes Under 18, in order to then prepare physical fitness programs for the Olympic Federations.

This project is based on the following criteria, repeated three times a year:

  1. Organization of the calendar and planning for team and individual sports
  2. Data collection: interviews with the athletes, coaches and physical trainers
  3. Practical tests about: endurance, speed, strength, flexibility, coordination, etc.
  4. Specific test for the Technical evaluation
  5. Data analysis and statistical methods
  6. Organization of seminars to present and discuss the results
  7. Preparation of the individual reports for athletes, coaches and physical trainers

In addition, I am also the official lecturer for the “Scuola dello Sport CONI”, specialized in: Talent Identification, Test and evaluation, Monitoring and planning, Strength and conditioning, Match analysis in team and individual sport.

I have participated in very many seminars on the topic of identification, selection, monitoring and developing talents in sports.

On the topic of Talent Identification I have also created and run a project that resulted in a written article published in the International Journal of Table Tennis with the title: Technical and tactical performance of top-class senior, junior and cadet table tennis players, (International Journal of Table Tennis Sciences).
