Syllabus
Notes: The course begins with a kick-off seminar (5 days, September 23th-27th). This activity provides an orientation to the program by involving all of the operational resources of the course. The propaedeutic efficacy of the kick-off seminar (KOS) comes from the insight gained from how the course content is shared and from what roles and tasks are offered, thus creating a well-informed and solid foundation for the educational activities.
Details of the activities include: the presentation of the degree course, of the first semester in Padua and of the other semesters in Leuven, Paris and Campo Grande (Brazil)as well as of the partner Universities: Johannesburg (South Africa) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) that students can choose for their internshi; the introduction of the disciplinary areas, a fieldtrip in Padua 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 administrative manager of the program presents useful information related to bureaucratic and organizational practices required by the Erasmus+ Program EMJMD, The Teaching Assistant takes care of and facilitates a better integration of university students to the local reality.
During the KOS is also organized a World Cafè entitled "Meet your future" in which participate social partners, representatives of institutions, NGO's as well as former students of the degree course who share with students their work and professional experience in Italy and abroad.
KOS is mandatory and entitles students to 2 CFU.
The KOS takes place from 23rd to 27th September 2019.
