Demonstration of the syllabus coherence with the UC intended learning outcomes

The topics syllabus focus on theoretical approach (sociology of action / research-action) and methodological (Design of action-research projects) that will allow students to read and understand existing projects and master the knowledge necessary to design and carry out a project intervention in the area of Sociocultural Animation.

It seeks that students do not have contact only with the methodological texts on the development, implementation and evaluation of intervention projects undoubtedly an important benchmark of their training, but also learn through practice, why they are integrated or collaborate with one or more community institutions have to develop appropriate tools to the different stages of development of a project. They learn how to collect data, analyze them and work them in the genesis of building a socio-cultural animation project sized for a calendar year. The execution of a part of the project, since the school timing does not allow the full realization, skills are tested essential in the planning, the animation techniques, communication with the public, the reflection on the work done.
