Obiettivi dell'insegnamento

The goal of the course is to enable students to design clear and effective communications. The course encompasses a number of formats, including: lectures by the teacher, laboratory classes (in which students design, revise and present projects and reports) and debate classes (in which students will be asked to defend thesis / antithesis).

There is no specific reference text for the course; notes, handouts, papers and books’ excerpts will be provided during the course in digital form.

Dublin Descriptors

Expected learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding

Students will learn the basics of communication sciences, rhetoric, argumentation theory and manipulation/propaganda.

Applying knowledge and understanding

Students will learn how to:

·        be clear

·        be persuasive

·        Identify “phallacies” (i.e. forms of reasoning that are only apparently correct) and reply to them

Making judgements

Given a relatively complex communication task, students will be able to decide what the most appropriate and persuasive arguments, in relation to the context, the addressee(s) and the gaol. Borrowing from rhetoric, they will be able to decide how to design the communication accordingly.

Communication

Students will learn to:

·        present in public

·        identify proper arguments to defend a standpoint/a proposal

·        write a project proposal

·        create multimedia/interactive presentations conveying key messages/values

Lifelong learning skills

Students will learn how to:

·        communicate in a professional and effective way, taking into consideration the addressee (common ground), the context and the goal they mean to achieve.

·        defend themselves from manipulation (phallacies)

Modalità di valutazione

Assessment

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 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…

IMPORTANT:

  • for both the written paper and the multimedia presentation, students are required, at the moment of submission, to also submit a short description of the communication scenario (who is the addressee, the goal, the context…) following a schema provided in the course’s website. Please be as accurate as possible.

The project proposal can be a group-work of up to 3 students.
