Learning Objectives

The course deals with the fundamental theoretical and methodological principles of Didactics as science of teaching. The course also aims at mastering the concepts and procedures that characterize the curricular design process. In this framework, the course focuses on the following topics:

- historical development of the discipline 

- main historical moments of the discipline and its protagonists;

- didactic devices and curriculum design tools with reference to the main taxonomies;

- various types of learning environments;

- the concept of didactic transposition (ascending and descending)

- the difference between General didactics and Disciplinary didactics;

- Instructional Technologies;

- places of education such as schools and museums.

Program

The course aims to address the main themes of General Didactics. Much space will be devoted to the analysis of concrete examples of teaching situations and specific curriculum design tools. In particular, the teaching situations will be an important starting point for reflecting about:

· Basic teaching concepts;

· Basic teaching devices;

· Didactic analysis tools for teaching situations;

· Relationship between educational decisions and context variables.

Bridging Courses
