Accanto a te, per sostenerti nel tuo percorso formativo, ci sono due specifiche figure professionali:

  • The Mentor, who is in charge of your reception and will offer you support throughout the entire Master's course, listening to your needs and ensuring the best conditions for the fruitful carrying out the Learning Process;
  • The Professor/Tutor, specific to each teaching, who has the task of facilitating your online learning path, providing you with the tools to profitably approach the study of the subject.

During the period of delivery of each Module, the Professor/Tutor will follow you in the course of the teaching activity, proposing ad hoc teaching materials, checking your learning progress through follow-up questions and exercises, and planning teaching interactions in Interactive Class, chat, Virtual Classroom and Forum, which you will find on the Tutor Page in the Teaching Cyberspace.

At each course delivery, students can select the courses they wish to take, up to a maximum of three teachings per delivery. The student will immediately have all the teaching materials available for individual study for each of the Master's courses. In addition, during the periods of delivery the student will have the support of the Professor/Tutor, who will guide him/her in the study, plan in the Agenda the teaching activities of the class, organize synchronous tutoring sessions in Interactive Class, chat and Virtual Classroom and asynchronous on the Forum.

Students are advised to start the course from the first three modules and then continue with the subsequent ones to create a cluster with other participants.

Mid-term and final Assessment

During the delivery of the module, the Tutor carries out qualitative and quantitative learning assessments in order to constantly monitor the results of the learning progress and provide customized support to students with a view to obtaining the assessment at the end of the module.

Quantitative assessment of student participation is carried out by the Tutor on the basis of statistics related to the student's navigation in the Didactic Cyberspace, in terms of: number of accesses and time of use of the Learning Environments and Online Tutoring tools, number of exercises completed, and average assessment/self-evaluation.

To complement this monitoring, the Tutor checks the students' learning progress during Interactive Classroom sessions, through follow-up questions and exercises related to the topics of the Module videolessons and through discussions on the module’s Forum. At the end of the delivery period of each module, the professor/tutor organizes final review sessions through interviews and/or follow-up exercises. The outcome of the qualitative and quantitative assessment forms the basis for the implementation of targeted initiatives by the Tutor for the enhancement of learning by learners, as well as for admission to the Master's course final exam.

The final examination consists of the discussion of a paper prepared on a topic related to the courses given during of the Master's lessons.

In order to obtain the Master's degree, the student must have acquired the credits prescribed by the course regulations, including those related to the final exam.

To complete the Master's higher education activities, internships at international and European institutions are provided for the most deserving students.

The Master's program is intended for European and non-European students who have completed an university degree course.

The training activities take place on the Internet, in the “Master” section of the portal:

The psycho-pedagogic model adopted also or the Master’s Course in European Union Studies concretizes the shift:

  • From teacher’s central role to the student’s central role;
  • From knowledge transfer to knowledge creation;
  • From a passive and competitive learning to active and collaborative learning.

The students play an active role in their learning progress and can study whenever and wherever they wish to. In the course of their learning path, the students are guided by an online tutoring system which is able to facilitate their learning and web-based communication process and to supply them with the tools to carry out their study of a specific subject successfully.

Online tutoring is organized into classes of students, through an advanced system of agenda that is able to recognize each individual and obtain the tracking of training activities and a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the learning process of each single student.

How to study

Enrolled students must follow all activities included in the Didactic Cyberspace.

Didactic Cyberspace

The Internet-based training activities take place in a web-based macro-area, which is called the Didactic Cyberspace. In the Didactic Cyberspace the training and learning process takes place and accesses are diversified through customized login and password depending on the role played by the different actors of the training process: Professors, Tutors and Students. These three categories of users can access the same information regarding each module. More specifically, the Professor and Tutor can modify or replace training materials and add new ones for the whole course duration, whereas the student can dispose of an area of his own where he can include data, information and personal notes.

The student can access to:

  • The Appointed Teaching Professor’s Page;
  • The Tutor’s Page.

On these pages there are the Learning Environments where is possible to access:

  • Training Materials, which represent the course contents: digitized videolessons including bookmarks allowing for hypertextual and multimedia linking to books, selected bibliographical references, texts of the exercises, selected webographies. The system of dynamic bookmarks gives the Internet-based video lessons a hypertextual character allowing different levels of navigation: from one lesson to the other one, among subjects of a single lesson, between the materials referring to the same subject.
  • Distance Tutoring. The students enrolled in the Master’s course will be assisted in every step of their study path by Telematic Professors-Tutors. The Telematic Professor-Tutor, represents a guide as well as a constant presence along the Learning Process.
    The distance Tutoring activities may be carried out in two ways:
    • in a synchronic manner, by using chats, video-chats, video and audio-conferencing, implemented in the Didactic Cyberspace, but also the three-dimensional classroom created on the UNINETTUNO Island of knowledge on Second Life.
    • in a diachronic manner, through tools such as e-mail and discussion forums on the Internet. The discussion forums, related to the topics of a given teaching subject, enable to enlarge dialogue and trigger a collaborative learning and give the opportunity for autonomous thinking on the issue being discussed and on the study activities carried on.
  • Virtual Classroom in UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge on Second Life On UNINETTUNO (International Telematic University) Island of Knowledge a 3D lecture hall was realized and it is devoted to this master’s courses. In this environment the students and professors/tutors’ avatars interact in the three-dimensional world of UNINETTUNO by their voice. Practice work, assessment tests and videoconferences with the protagonists of the Master’s Course, who will be attending through their avatars, are carried out, as well as real-time practice activities guided by the professors/tutors’ avatars.

In the virtual classroom of Second Life in the UNINETTUNO Island of Knowledge the students and the professors/tutors teach and learn in a collaborative and cooperative way. They build and share knowledge with people belonging to different political, cultural and religious settings, they dialogue, cultural differences are confronted, socialization processes are implemented as well as the creation of new knowledge.
