The IUL training model, flexible and customizable on the basis of students’ previous knowledge and experience, provides lectures and interactive teaching (forums, etivities, etc.) for each module.

Online teaching is organised as follows for each ECTS credit:

1 hour of lecture: audio or video recordings, web-conference lessons (online meetings, also called “synchronous learning”), pre-structured courseware or similar variants (it is any material structured for teaching purposes and offered in web environments of various types);

5 hours of interactive teaching: didactic interventions by the teacher or tutor addressed to the class or to a part of it in the form of demonstrations or additional explanations (FAQ, mailing lists, forum), short interventions made by the students in forums, blogs and wikis, e-tivities (individual or collaborative) carried out by the students with relative feed-back;

19 hours of self-study (individual and independent study).

 

The Expert Teacher mode also provides:

  • Skills development and training through “online gyms”, related to the different courses, constantly supported by the gym trainer and by peer comparison;
  • access to a Media Library of content to deepen the topics covered within the various gyms;
  • recognition of skills acquired through an “open badge” system;
  • enrolment in the Expert Teacher Register once the course is completed, with the creation of a public profile card that highlights the results achieved.

 

Finally, the model adopted provides for assisted learning throughout the training course, as well as by the teachers, also by disciplinary tutors/trainers who are experts in the course content, and by a course tutor with transversal skills.

The goal of the course consists of the final discussion of a thesis, mandatory for all, agreed with one of the teachers of the modules of the Master/Advanced training course. Essential requirement to be able to sit the dissertation is to have passed all the tests of the modules. The thesis discussion will take place at the headquarters of IUL online university in Florence, in via Michelangelo Buonarroti no. 10, 50122.

The final mark will be the result of the weighted average of the assessments made by the teachers of the individual modules and of the discussion of the final thesis.

The professional master course/advanced course, accessible in e-learning mode, lasts one academic year for a total of 1,500 hours and provides for the release of 60 ECTS credits. 1 ECTS credit is equivalent to 25 hours of student work, including frontal teaching and individual study.

Each of the 4 profiles consists of 6 modules of 9 credits each:

  • The first 2 modules, common to all profiles, are transversal and constitute the initial common part;
  • the remaining 4 modules characterize each profile/course. The 60 ECTS for each of the four profiles are organised as follows:
