Syllabus
Notes: The course includes a kick-off seminar (3-4 days). This activity provides an orientation to the master through the involvement of all of the operational resources of the course. The propaedeutic efficacy of kick-off seminar (KOS) comes from creating a solid foundation for educational activities through the sharing of course content and the knowledge of the roles/tasks that are offered.
Details of the activities include: the presentation of the degree course and the introduction of the disciplinary areas, a fieldtrip in Padova with the objective to acquire local knowledge of urban issues related to sustainable development, a fieldtrip with a broader context in Veneto to develop regional-level knowledge on rural-mountain environment related to sustainable development; and a key lecture held by an eminent foreign scholar.
A meeting is dedicated to group activities managed by the Didactic Manager, who illustrates how to deal with various academic tools (Uniweb, Moodle, online consultation and book loans, the procedure for submitting documents regarding internships, Thesis, etc.).
The KOS normally concludes with a round table in which representatives of institutions, NGO's, experts on local and / or environmental development as well as former students of the degree course share with students their work and professional experience in Italy and abroad.
KOS is compulsory and the Didactic Manager collects participants' signatures twice a day (am - pm). The 65% of the overall presence at KOS entitles students to 1 CFU.
The KOS takes place from 25th to 29th September 2017.
