Tecnologie per la didattica

Since 2018, the University has been allocating funds for the improvement of teaching.

You can find in this section descriptions of valuable projects that are inspiring, convey good practice and serve as a reference for future teaching initiatives.

School of Science

  Dipartimento di Matematica “Tullio Levi-Civita”

Il Dipartimento di Matematica “Tullio Levi-Civita” si riunisce a Villa Bolasco per sostenere il  Community DevelopmentThe Department of Mathematics "Tullio Levi-Civita" with the aim of promoting good practices in Community Development, brought together a group of students, researchers, teaching and administrative staff under the guidance of Dr. Elisa Gallo (an expert in development and training for Capgemini). Together, they delved into the concept of community as a multiplier of ideas, energy, knowledge, and time

The group explored new models of work embracing the economy of passion and commitment. 

Furthermore, the group discussed future perspectives and unanimously recognized that the Community represents: 

  • A tangible and virtual space for meeting and creating synergistic interactions.
  • An opportunity to transmit knowledge and a sense of shared responsibility.
  • A chance to foster continuous learning by involving all stakeholders of the Department.

School of Medicine

  Dipartimento di Scienze Biomediche (DSB)


ABILITY3 represents a didactic proposal focused on engaging students in conducting and communicating biomedical research through experiential and inquiry-based learning.

The project unfolds along two main lines: 

- A student-centered approach realized through laboratory internships, built upon inquiry-based and experiential learning methodologies, and complemented by workshops aimed at enhancing communication skills. These workshops are designed to train students in effectively disseminating scientific content across various contexts.
- A teacher-oriented line aimed at improving the effectiveness of tutoring methods and designing laboratory investigations in an engaging and educational manner. 

For more information, we invite you to consult the project page

Project leaders: Simonetta Ausoni, Christian Borgo, Marco Dal Maschio, Regina Tavano
Keywords: experiential learning, inquiry-based learning, communication skills.
