Programme

The course aims to encourage critical reflection aimed towards the professional practice of the teacher and, at the same time, to promote knowledge and methodological skills to address special educational needs (SEN). Accordingly, aspects of the relationship between cultural inclusion, socio-emotional and communicative skills will be explored, with particular attention to creative expressive methodological approaches (creative therapies) and narrative tools (autobiography and diaries) that are capable of supporting individual and group imaginative activities for inclusion through reflection and sharing.
The course will use a blended learning approach, which combines online digital media with traditional classroom methods. The e-learning platform of the department is made available for this purpose (http://formonline.uniroma3.it).
During the course students will prepare their own works, which will be evaluated by the lecturer.
