Learning objectives
The student must learn all the elements that constitute it in the communication process, the phonatory part must be considered the main output of this process.
Expected learning outcomes
distinguish the different pathologies and know the possible causes
define when the consultation of the medical specialist is useful
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Responsible
The lessons will be held on the Microsoft Teams platform and can be followed both synchronously on the basis of the first semester timetable and asynchronously because they will be recorded and left available to students on the same platform
Prerequisites for admission
To understand the topics explained during frontal teaching, a series of basic knowledge is required.
Preliminary scientific knowledge corresponds to the notions of the first year and attended the Seminar „Audiometric diagnostic strategies" of the first year
Assessment methods and Criteria
The learning assessment methods for students are based on a written test. The student can access only one of the 2 dates proposed for each exam session. There are no intermediate and / or ongoing tests. It is not possible to bring any instrument or didactic material during the test.
The written test consists of several questions with multiple choices, one of which is correct. The student will have to answer indicating his preference between four types of answers. The exam score is expressed in 30/30 cum laude and will be communicated through the computer system by the teaching secretariat, the student can email directly at: federica.diberardino@unimi.it if he deems it useful to view the exam. There is no oral supplementary exam.
