Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

1. Knowledge and ability to understand: the knowledge to be acquired relates to the issues concerning the connotation of the image society and its development, the relationship between cultural and technological dimensions, understanding is achieved through the acquisition of theoretical skills on models with particular attention to the dynamics relating to the socio-cultural transformations of the contemporary iconosphere.
1.1. Students acquire this basic knowledge through attendance of lectures and seminars, the study of texts discussed in the classroom and in class exercises.

1.2. Students undertake in-depth study and empirical analysis of one of the proposed paths identified on the basis of their interest.
2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: through the ability to analyse visual cultural products by applying the main methodologies of analysis from Visual Sociology.
2.1. Skills acquired through laboratory exercises in the classroom.
3. Capacity for judgement: critical reflection on the evolutionary dynamics of the image society and visual culture as well as the ongoing transformations affecting communication as a whole and the forms of communication through images in particular.
3.1. This capacity for judgement is to be applied in the classroom discussion with the lecturer and colleagues, during the exercises, in the choice of one of the in-depth courses and in the preparation of the final examination.
4. Communication skills: students are called upon to interact in the classroom by means of questions, exchanges with colleagues and fellow students, drafting short presentations during the exercises, also starting from the choice of the in-depth thematic pathway.
4.1. Skills that are practised in the classroom by organising moments of discussion and exercise.
5. Learning ability: students are required to adopt a critical learning method capable of connecting theoretical competences and empirical analysis, moving towards the specification of autonomous thinking.
5.1. Skills to be enhanced through argumentation with the lecturer and fellow students.
