Modalità di valutazione
The exam is meant to test both the ‘cognitive’ (learning the facts and basic information) and ‘application’ learning. A written test will be used to measure cognitive learning, while a project proposal (written paper plus a multimedia presentation) will allow measuring application of learning.
The written test is based on the background readings (60% of the final score).
By background readings the slides with their comments and the materials that are posted in the course’s website as the course unfolds are meant. Students are expected to be fully acquainted with all the background materials’ content and to be able to rephrase it in their own words.
The project proposal implies delivering a written paper and a multimedia presentation. The project proposal accounts for 40% of the final score.
The multimedia presentation can be a digital storytelling, a website, an app, a video, a presentation… The project proposal can be a group-work of up to 3 students.
More details will be provided during the course.
