AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide students with the theoretical knowledge of the most recent techniques employed in the different steps of the analytical process and their applicability on real samples. In particular, innovative sampling techniques for the analyses of organic micropollutants in complex matrices will be addressed, also as regards to the following instrumental analysis. Overall aim of the course is to lead students to have a critical competence/capability in the choice of the possible analytical solutions, also taking into account the knowledge of the previous analytical courses.

At the end of the course students must be able to:

  • describe in detail the different analytical techniques addressed, their operation and possible applications with a technical language;
  • highlight the peculiarities of innovative techniques compared to traditional ones;
  • choose among the techniques studied the most suitable for the analysis of a specific category of compounds and justify the choice made, considering important factors such as the concentration of the analytes, the type of matrix and its complexity, the possible presence of interferents
  • communicate effectively in written and oral form, adapting one's communication to the context, using various sources and aids, exercising critical thinking; using, processing and evaluating information, exercising argumentative skills
  • identify one's abilities, showing ability to concentrate and critically reflect on a task; manage complexity, showing autonomy in decision-making and task performance, seeking support if necessary; manage stress, developing resilience skills
  • manage one's social interactions, developing a cooperative attitude and constructive communication skills in different environments, respect others and their needs,be willing to overcome prejudices, express and understand different points of view, learning to manage possible conflicts, build trust, empathy
  • be aware of one's preferred learning strategies, organize and evaluate personal learning according to what is understood and learned; understand one's own needs and ways of developing skills; be able to identify and pursue learning goals.

TEACHING METHODS

Class attendance is not mandatory, although strongly recommended. The course will alternate between frontal lectures in Italian and group work. Group activities designed to encourage an active approach to solving an analytical problem will also be organized, favoring case studies and project-based teaching.

Lecture slides and additional teaching materials available on Aulaweb.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The oral examination, conducted by two tenured faculty members, is aimed at assessing knowledge of the topics covered in the course, given in the detailed syllabus deposited on Aulaweb, while also taking into consideration the activities carried out during the course itself.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

During the oral examination, questions will be asked designed to test not only the degree of learning of the subject, but also the ability to apply it to real cases and solve problems. Thus, in this way, the committee is able to accurately verify the achievement of the educational objectives of the teaching. When these are not achieved, the student is encouraged to study further and to avail himself of further explanations by the lecturers.

Constituting criteria of the evaluation are:

- the quality of exposition,

- the correct use of specialized vocabulary,

- the ability to analyze and critically reflect, including on possible cases already discussed or hypothetical.
