Note Sulla Modalità di valutazione

At the end of the course, participants will be asked to work in small groups to develop a research proposal, combining their research interests with some topics discussed in the course. This will allow to assess the ability to identify appropriate topics (ILO3.1), to match theories and methods (ILO2.1), and to design a research project accordingly (ILO3.2)

The assignment will be evaluated considering the following weights: ILO2.1 – 30%, ILO3.1 – 30%, ILO3.2 – 40%.
