Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Students should achieve: 1. knowledge and skills of understanding: becoming able to recognize and identify hygienic-sanitary risks during sport activities and in related environments. Students can achieve those knowledges through attendance to lessons and seminars, and studying teaching material indicated by the teacher. 2. Capability to apply knowledge and comprehension by developing a multidisciplinary approach in the analysis and management of health resiks in sport activities and facilities. Capabilities to find information and data, with in-depth theoretical and empirical analyses. Results are obtained by discussion during lessons, seminars and biblioraphic studies, also on the web. 3. Capability of judgment: through the development of capabilities of critical and detailed evaluation about health problems during sport activities . Such capability will be achieved during lessons by discussion with the teacher and other students, and during the exam. 4. Communication skills: by participating and discussing during lessons with the teacher and other students. The student will be encouraged to use informatic tools for communication. 5. Learning skills: by the development of abilities to analyse and evaluate problems, also by the search of “on line” bibliographic material;  students could achieve capability to elaborate information and knowledge, also in the field of technical regulations.
