5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process is based on the following:

According to the new Bologna framework, in this subject there are planned both classroom and non-attendance activities for the students. This agenda will be available to the students at the beginning of the spring semester.

The active learning methodology is applied in the course. The lecturers propose a series of in-class and out-class activities, both individual and group activities.

In most of the in-class activities, students will work in teams and cooperatively, promptly helped by the lecturer, leaving individual tasks to be carried outside the classroom.

Students will have all the training materials and support needed in the Digital Teaching Ring (ADD), loaded synchronously with the lectures and laboratory sessions.

5.2. Learning tasks


Detailed program of the unit, notes, basic bibliography, proposed exercises, etc.: All the necessary materials will be provided at the beginning of each unit.

Detailed study guide where the student can find the tasks to be carried out and their delivery deadlines.

In-class activities consist of short questions or multiple-choice about the theory. Many of these tasks are solved in cooperation with other students.

When a large group of students encounter difficulties in the study of some parts of the theory, they can be taught by the lecturer in a master class on request.


Problem-solving sessions will be organized using cooperative learning techniques. In some cases the session will end with a brief explanation by the lecturer of key difficulties of the exercise. Out-class work include the review the exercise.

Active learning methodologies may be tested during the course both for theory and problem-solving learning.


5.3. Syllabus
