Educational model

Unitelma Sapienza adopts an educational and training model that is composed with:

Video lessons - Each course has numerous video lessons where the professor explains the main contents of the course. One can  separately download the audio file and the pdf of the slides used during the video lesson. Most lessons are supplemented with additional teaching materials such as: books and articles (extracts, study activity sheets, etc.); exercises (with answers); bibliographies; site links. By “Download lesson slides” (the PDF file) and printing it, students have a useful aid to follow the lessons, take notes which watching it and in so doing realizing their own “Course Notebook”. The slides presented by the Professor during the video lesson constitute an important support tool for studies: one can use them as a basis for notes, a means by which one can create a personal notebook. Video lessons can be seen on any device, Pc tablet or smartphone. Each video-lesson is divided into topics and created with a predefined indexing system which allows for flexible use. One can see an entire video lesson in a linear fashion or follow a non-linear itinerary, thus choosing the topics that one wishes to study in greater depth along with the connected study materials. The modular organization of the course contents, the indexing of the topics allows students  to develop multimedia learning processes, leading to a more personalized study path. The consultation and study of didactic teaching materials will enable students to  prepare more thoroughly studying in greater depth the various topics introduced in the video lesson and through practical application of the concepts learned.

Webinar - Periodical webinar are present on  each individual course content, consisting in a live web-streaming that the students can follow and participate, based on thematic discussions on issues being dealt with by the video lessons with the active participation of both professor and tutor. This is a synchronic tool whose activities are carried out on a regular basis. The webinar is designed to provide student participation and support for a more interactive learning process.

Tutorship - Participants in a course are aided by a dedicated  tutor specific for the course involved, whose    task  is  that of supporting the student in the process of knowledge apprehension,  and to better  face any obstacles in the training program helping learners fully understand a topic before moving onto a more advanced topic.

Grade system - Examinations are graded according to a scale ranging from 0 to 30, with 18 as a pass mark. A cum laude may be added to the highest grade (30 e lode), as a mention of special distinction.
