Learning Objectives

Corporeity plays a vital role in learning and socialization processes and  in the development  of personality through self-knowledge and awareness of one’s own potentialities. The starting point of the action of motor activity is education through movement as recognised in its fundamental components: bodily, expressive, communicative, relational and operative as functions of a person’s psychophysical development and  consolidating correct and healthy life-styles. The course focuses on play, motor activity and disability, and also aims at providing an advanced theoretical understanding of motor themes linked to other areas, such as personality, school and the teacher’s role in the building up and development of identity, of the acquisition of autonomy and of pupils’ skills also assisted by play workshop didactics to enhance the active dimension of learning. The course enhances the teacher-instructor-entertainer-facilitator’s role, which represents a key figure responsible of a gym as a relationship-building environment where play and animation also contribute to the growth of the pupil-person. Study in depth the culture of movement, the building up of  a subject in developmental age through interdisciplinary experiences regarding self and others, things, the environment for an inclusive movement pedagogy. of attention through cognitive, social, emotional experiences in relationship to self and to others and to the environment.

Additional Information for Non-Attending Students


The aims of the course are assessed by two types of tests:

1. A summarized technical-practical assessment of the practical workshop with evaluated with a mark fail, pass, merit, distinction:

a)   the student’s attendance during  the term (effort, participation, collaboration with teacher and fellow students, organizational, logistic and creative skills, etc.)

b)   the final practical assessment (detailed information will be given during the practical lessons). Students who do not have the practical assessment prior to taking the examination must contact the teacher by emai: samantha.cremonesi@uniurb.it

2. An interview.

For the oral examination the following criteria will be used:

- Relevant and effective answers in relation to the contents of the program; - level of mastery of knowledge; - adequacy of disciplinary vocabulary and terminological precision; - relevant application of methodologies, techniques, tools; - articulation of the answer.

Each of the criteria is evaluated based on a judgment four-level scale, with equal importance assigned to each criterion. The final evaluation is expressed in thirtieths.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.
