Globalization, technological progress and demographic change have significantly altered the current job market, affecting the quantity and quality of each occupation. Additionally, the current social context is deeply marked by a series of emergencies and economic, social and environmental crises, highlighted by the United Nations in its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (UN, 2015). Based on this, the most recent and accredited theoretical models in psychology of vocational guidance focus on a series of skills useful to cope with the complexity of current contexts. Although historically, technical skills have been considered the only skills needed to enter the labor market, today they are not considered sufficient to guarantee job success and access to the labor market and focuses rather on a range of transversal or soft skills (social skills, personal initiative, problem-solving, creativity, optimism, etc.)
Whereas historically, technical and hard skills were considered the only needed skills for access to the labor market, today these skills are not enough to guarantee job success and access to the job market. Emphasis is placed on a series of transversal competences or soft skills (e.g. social skills, flexibility, problem-solving, creativity, optimism, etc.).
Based on these premises, in the first part of the course, the students will be introduced to theoretical frameworks and operational tools to analyze the current challenges of the current world and job market and to describe processes sustaining the these challenges.
In the second part of the course attention will be given to a series of soft skills and students will be trained to collaborate assertively, to systematically observe the world of work and social contexts, to analyze social situations avoiding stereotyped and irrational beliefs. In addition, attention will be given to students’ personal initiative, abilities to recognize and take advantage of opportunities, and to the propensity to positivity, optimism and hope.
The course will consist of lessons, classwork, group works and assignments. Assessment instruments will be administered online. All course material (e.g., slides, readings) will be made available on the e-learning website of the course, so that it can also be used by non-attending students.
There are no pre-requisites for attendance.
Modalità di valutazione
The oral exam aimed at ascertaining the classwork exercises, group works and assignments. In addition, the goal of the oral examination is to ascertain the effective acquisition of knowledge related to the theoretical frameworks and theoretical constructs considered, and the relative ability to apply them to current social contexts. The answers will be evaluated in relation to the correctness of the contents expressed, the ability to synthesize, to argue and identify the connections between the different areas, to the development of skills that allow a critical reading of the phenomena discussed.
