Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Students will be asked to read papers before any topics are dealt with in class so that they can organize interactive teaching with the teacher, even through work in small groups. The aim will be to make them more active in understanding, in the processing of materials, in the deepening of the topics. The teaching will aim to assimilate the complex nature of the institutions and policies of the European Union, to make them develop the awareness of the duality between elements of supranationality and elements of intergovernmentality of these institutions, and of the contradictoriness that never results among the different integration and conflict processes within the decision-making arena. The general aim will therefore be to use European institutions as a growth field for a complex and critical reasoning capacity in the face of a reality that is difficult to interpret. Students will be asked to develop logical and content links and to argue with others about the result of their work of analysis and imputation of cause. The teaching will try to empower the following abilities: 

Ability to use analytical tools by connecting them to express innovative interpretations

Ability to obtain information related to a topic or case study, select the most relevant and relevant information, summarize the knowledge material

Autonomy of judgment in the research, analytical, synthesis and processing path

Ability to present their research work to other students and to the teacher

Ability to argue publicly in support of their thesis by accepting the convincing arguments of the interlocutors
