RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO ATTESI LEARNING OUTCOMES
Conoscenze e comprensione.

A combination of classroom lectures, interactive exercises and field trips
will offer to the students the basic theoretical and practical knowledge on
Marine Protected Area development and management.
They learn the main aims and opportunities represented by MPAs in
marine conservation. At least a couple of MPAs will be visited to meet the
day-by-day problems managers have to face.
Topics are national, regional and international policy on MPAs, ecotourism
activities associated to the MPAs to promote sustainable livelihoods and
MPA revenue, raising awareness and building compliance with MPA.


Capacità di applicare conoscenze e comprensione.

The course will provide the students with the necessary information to
work in environmental management and in biodiversity conservation in
the frame of MPAs. At the end of the course the students know the
pathways to follow for the development of a MPA and the main activities
required for their management and monitoring.
The students have to apply the theoretical knowledge acquired during
specific case studies, evaluating processes, phenomena, and
environmental episodes, related to conservation and management of
both coastal and off-shore marine environment.


Competenze trasversali.

During the theoretical classes specific case studies will be discussed,
stimulating their understanding abilities and emphasising the high
interdisciplinary required to develop conservation projects.
The peculiarity of the practical activities requires developing good skills
of interaction and coordination within a workgroup.

MODALITÀ DI SVOLGIMENTO DELL'ESAME DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXAMINATION
Modalità di valutazione dell'apprendimento.

The evaluation of the preparation of the student will be made by a final
oral exam. Questions will be addressed to the main conservation
theories, to biodiversity conservation, to national and international laws
on biodiversity conservation. The problem solving skills will be tested by
the analysis of case studies.


Criteri di valutazione dell'apprendimento.

The level of knowledge acquired, exposed during the oral test, referring
to lectures and to the practical parts, will be evaluated to assess the
students’ preparation.


Criteri di misurazione dell'apprendimento.

The final mark is assigned as a fraction of 30. The exam is successfully
passed when the mark is equal to or higher than 18/30. The highest mark
can be assigned cum laude.


Criteri di attribuzione del voto finale.

The final mark is given considering the levels of knowledge acquired and
shown during the oral test, and it is conferred considering the theoretical
and practical parts.
