Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The learning outcomes will be: - Demonstrated knowledge and understanding skills in the field of restoration chemistry at a level that, characterized by the use of advanced textbooks, also includes knowledge of some avant-garde themes in the field of interaction between the environment and materials constituting the artefacts paintings; - Demonstrated ability to apply and understand the acquired knowledge, so as to be able to approach the specific job in a professional way thanks to the acquisition of appropriate skills allowing to conceive and support arguments as well as to solve problems in the field of restoration chemistry; - Demonstrated ability to collect and interpret data - useful for determining independent judgments, including reflection on social, scientific or ethical issues related to them; - Demonstrated ability to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to specialists interlocutors on restoration chemistry and non-specialists; - Demonstrated ability to have the learning necessary to undertake successive studies with a high degree of autonomy
