Learning Objectives

The course aims to offer students the necessary elements for building a systematic framework of the rights on equal opportunities in the supranational and internal (Italian national) system.

Starting from a reconstruction of the value of the "principle of formal and substantive equality" within the Italian Constitution and European Union law, it will be investigated the main cases of European and Italian anti-discrimination law, with particular attention to employment relationships and jurisprudence of the Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights and the Italian Courts.

The course’s method, which combines traditional teaching (lectures) with innovative-experimental techniques (Debate, Flipped Learning and use of the Moodle-blended learning platform), is aimed at developing both basic and higher cognitive knowledge.  In this way, through the direct debate with the teacher and the work in the classroom (Teaching Working Class), we want to encourage the learning process through a more student’s effective involvement and a better organization of the teaching materials, to facilitate the knowledge processes during the course’s development.

Didactics, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Didactics

The course will take place in the Second semester. 

Teaching will take place in traditional (lectures) and in innovative-experimental mode (Teaching Working Class). In addition, seminars, including hybrid forms, will be used through the digital touchboards’ support. Specifically, the lessons will be held with mixed teaching methods.

Furthermore, the course will be supported by an articulated tutoring activity. The lessons in the Teaching Working Class and seminar activities aim to provide students an opportunity for in-depth study and thinking on the most relevant issues.

In agreement with the students, collective meetings can be organized in mixed mode, aimed to providing clarifications and carrying out a possible key topics review of the program addressed in class.

Attendance

Participation on at least 3/4 of the total hours of the course.

Assessment

The exam consists of an in-depth oral discussion, based on at least three questions, during which students will have to demonstrate, in addition to the knowledge of the study materials indicated, also the ability to frame the topics that will be dealt with in the broader legal context. in which they must be correctly placed. In this perspective, the oral test is more suitable for verifying the level of knowledge acquired and the possession of an adequate legal language.

Students who have attended the lessons assiduously will be able to take, alternatively by means of a specific oral interview or multiple choice written test, an intermediate test relating to the issues relating to the General Part of the Course. Also in this case, the final assessment will be carried out exclusively in oral form.

Oral exam. In addition to the student's communication skills, this assessment method allows to evaluate in a more complete way the acquisition of the analytical and critical skills required of the student in consideration of the complexity of the topics and arguments covered by the course, of which he must demonstrate knowledge and the comprehension.

The evaluation criteria and the scale of marks are as follows:

•  less than 18: competence level insufficient. The student doesn’t reach the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”;

•  18-20: competence level sufficient. The student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”;

•  21-23: competence level satisfactory. The student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding” and in “applied knowledge and understanding”;

•  24-26: competence level good. The student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding” and “making judgments”;

•  27-29: competence level very good. The student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “communication skills”;

•  30-30 with honours: competence level excellent. The student fully attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “learning skills”.
