MU.COM. PROJECT Nicola Boccella Course evaluation and validation by the Students of the University La Sapienza Second Transnational Workshop Sibiu, 9 March 2012
Validating the course contents Between January and February 2012, the course materials have been evaluated by the students of the University “La Sapienza”.
Validating the course contents Students having participated in September 2011 to the Dissemination workshop held at the seat of the University La Sapienza – Vetrerie Sciarra -, have been kept informed about the course development from October to December 2011.
Validating the course contents 15 Students participated in the course evaluation by filling an evaluation questionnaire. They have been requested to express their evaluation about: - Contents of the course, with reference to pertinence, clearness and completeness of such contents; -Web platform; - Suggestions and remarks.
Validating the course contents Evaluation of the course contents On the whole, the contents have been evaluated as well structured, complete and well developed. Students expressed a good evaluation about pertinence, clearness and completeness of the course contents.
Validating the course contents Evaluation of the web platform On the whole, the technical platform has been evaluated as very good, easy to use and accessible.
Validating the course contents Suggestions and remarks Students expressed perplexities about the frequent reference to very specific national contexts (examples and case studies from Romania).
Validating the course contents Suggestions and remarks Students expressed perplexities about the structure of the course, sometimes too rich in topics: for example, referring to the local Culture, History and Religion of the countries participated in the project has been evaluated as unnecessary and too complicated to be managed in the frame of a self- evaluation course.
Validating the course contents Conclusions In conclusion, we can consider the course contents as approved and validated by the students’ sample interviewed.
Validating the course contents Conclusions: necessary adaptation According to what suggested by the students, we are proposing to make more accessible the course, deleting some unnecessary or too complicated topics, having been evaluated as not appropriate for a self- learning course. In some cases, it is also necessary to shorten the course modules and to reduce the number of case studies too linked at specific national contexts, keeping in mind the transnational point of view that the course must bear.
