BEING IMPOSSIBLE TO PROVIDE NOW A DEFINITIVE LESSON SCHEDULE, AND IN VIEW OF ANY EXTRAORDINARY MEASURES CONCERNING DIDACTICAL ACTIVITY EMOTED BY THE UNIVERSITY, STUDENTS ARE INVITED TO FREQUENTLY VISIT THE WEB SITES https://corsi.unige.it/9020/p/studenti-orario AND https://chimica.unige.it/node/390 TO BE UPDATED ON THIS TOPICS
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Periodic learning checks - Final oral exam.
The oral exam will consist of a series of questions and consequent discussion on the various modules in which the course is organized, in order to evaluate the correct achievement of the learning outcomes (see "assessment methods").
Further information will be provided during the course (during the first lesson, and subsequently at the request of the student).
For students with disabilities or with SLD, the examination methods are consistent with the University regulations for carrying out the exams (https://unige.it/disabilita-dsa).
The attendance of the lessons constitutes a fundamental prerequisite for the achievement of the learning outcomes of the teaching.
The oral exam will allow the verification of the actual achievement of these outcomes.
At the same time, the student's critical reasoning skills and his ability to answer specific questions in a clear and direct way will be assessed. In particular, the student's ability to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in response to realistic scenarios or to solve simple problems will also be positively evaluated.
If the learning outcomes are not achieved, the student will be invited to deepen the study and to make use of further explanations by the teacher.
