there is a mid-term written exam to ascertain knowledge of general frameworks, structures, chronology and major events in the medieval millennium. At the end of the course, during a seminar day, students will discuss a essay/volume of their own choice, following up topics addressed during the course. During the oral presentation, besides the indicated bibliography, students will report on all topics and documents touched upon during lectures. Questions will assess students' a) acquisition of the required knowledge, b) critical thinking and commentary of texts, both primary and secondary sources; c) correctness and effectiveness of presentation. Overall assessment, which takes into account the student's attendance and participation in the course, will be based on three indicators: quality and degree of knowledge on topics addressed; ability to contextualize facts, highlighting links through documentary sources, and critical reporting (up to 10/30); correct and appropriate use of language (up to 10/30).
Working students who do not attend classes must contact the lecturer to agree on an alternative programme.
