THE EXAM CONSISTS OF TWO PARTS: ON THE ONE HAND, STUDENTS WILL - EITHER INDIVIDUALLY OR IN GROUP - ARRANGE A PROJECT WORK. A MAXIMUM OF 6 MEMBERS COULD BE INCLUDED IN PROJECT WORKS REALIZED IN GROUPS. THE TEACHING STAFF WILL LEAD THE STUDENTS IN IDENTIFYING AND HANDLING THE TOPICS TO BE DEALT WITH. ALL THE PROJECTS WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE PARTICIPANTS TO THE TEACHING ACTIVITIES IN - MORE OR LESS - 20 MINUTES FOR EACH PROJECT. DURING THE DISCUSSION, THE STUDENTS WILL EMPHASIZE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR IDEA, THE METHODS ADOPTED AND THE FINDINGS COLLECTED. SLIDES AND OTHER DIGITAL TOOLS CAN BE USED TO SUPPORT THE DISCUSSION. DURING THE DISCUSSION, THE TEACHING STAFF WILL ASK FOR MORE INFORMATION IF STUDENTS ARE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE INSIGHTS ABOUT THE TOPIC DEALT WITH. ON THE OTHER HAND, STUDENTS WILL PARTICIPATE IN AN ORAL EXAM OF ABOUT 15 MINUTES. THE ORAL EXAM IS AIMED AT ASSESSING THE KNOWLEDGE AND COMPREHENSION SKILLS OF THE STUDENTS. OVERALL, THE EXAM WILL ALLOW TO FIGURE OUT BOTH THE KNOWLEDGE DEVELOPED BY THE STUDENT AT THE END OF THE TEACHING ACTIVITIES, AND THE ABILITY TO AUTONOMOUSLY ARRANGE AND DISCUSS A PRACTICAL PROJECT.
