The main objective of the course is to develop the skills of knowing how to plan, organize, manage and evaluate didactic interventions with particular reference to the body, motor and sports fields.
No particular prerequisites are required
The course provides a basic theoretical and practical preparation related to the study discipline integrated by a concrete and professional training in order to acquire the foundations of an effective educational and teaching relationship in the different contexts (lifewide) of motor intervention, in different ages of life (lifelong).
The main objective of the course is to develop knowledge on how to plan, organize, manage and evaluate didactic interventions with particular reference to the body, motor and sports fields.
The course develops in two phases:
Phase 1- general part:
It includes the fundamentals of general education as a discipline and as a science of formative action with particular reference to: the teaching and learning theories and models, the design and management schemes of the teaching intervention, the main problems of communication and of the relationship training models, the evaluation models of educational processes.
Phase 2 - monographic part:
It includes a specific reflection on the theories and models of education and teaching in the field of the body and motor with particular reference to the knowledge of the body's identity, its languages and methodologies related to the teaching of motor and sport disciplines.
All the contents of the study will be analyzed with participatory and relational methodology in order to demonstrate "in vivo" how the study of the discipline consists in tracing "didactically effective" solutions that enhance both the individual and the collective dimension of the teaching-learning processes.
Materials and tools of study:

The course is divided into two phases:
Step 1 -
It includes the foundations of general teaching as a discipline and as a science of the training activity with particular reference to: theories and models of teaching-learning, the design and management schemes of the teaching, the main problems of communication and the relationship training, models of evaluation of didactic processes.
Step 2 -
Includes a specific reflection on theories and models of education and didactics in the body and motor sectors, with particular reference to knowledge of body identity, its languages and methodologies related to the teaching of sports and sports disciplines.
All contents of the study will be analyzed with participative and relational methodology in order to demonstrate "in vivo" as the study of the discipline consists in tracing "didactically effective" solutions that value both the individual and the collective dimension of the teaching and learning processes.

level 6 –
Testing will take place through an intermediate test consisting of a mid-course test at the end of Phase 1 (general part) and a final exam consisting of an oral interview on the entire study program (general part and part-time).
The results of the intermediate test evaluation will be merely orientational and not decisive for the purposes of the final evaluation.
The evaluation of the final exam will take place taking into account 5 prevalent indicators according to a specific evaluation form that will be exposed and made known to students during the presentation of the program:
a) Knowledge and understanding (knowledge and understanding)
b) Applied knowledge and understanding (applying knowledge and understanding)
c) Making judgments
d) Communication skills
e) Learning Skills
Professor Iavarone receives students every Monday from 9am to 11pm at her studio in Via Medina, 40 (NA) staircase A, first floor, room 19.
It is possible to call and / or send an email to arrange an appointment outside of this day / time.
Professor Iavarone organizes "study tutorials" through one-to-one mentoring and peer to peer tutorials by appointment at his studio.
