Learning objectives
The aim of the course is to provide the broad outlines of medieval history, as well as the tools necessary to understand the main political, economic, social and religious elements visible during the centuries of the late ancient age to the early Renaissance.
Expected learning outcomes
By the end of the course the student will have acquired the knowledge of the political-institutional, socio-economic and cultural development of Medieval history, from 5th to the 15th centuries. They shall also be able to place the most representative events and figures in their chronological and geographical contexts. The student will be able to use language tools (language properties, correct specific lexicon) to express, in a clear and effective form, concepts of a political, institutional, economic, and religious nature; they will be able to read critically historiographical works and use the main tools, including digital tools, for the research and analysis of sources. These skills will be acquired through a direct and continuous meeting with the instructor in the classroom. The discussion around the proposed sources will be an essential moment of critical reflection and methodological learning. Participation in meetings and seminars organized within the Department of Historical Studies will also be of great importance. Students opting not to attend the lessons will be able to make use of the educational tools provided by the instructor on Ariel, deepen their knowledge of main topics through special readings with the agreement with the instructor, and of course contact the instructor either by e-mail and during office hours

Lesson period
First semester
In relation to the possible developments of the health emergency, in order to organize the course in the most effective way, the teaching will be organized as follows.
- as in the previous years, the lessons will follow the main topics of the medieval history textbook, with insights and focus on some topics, leaving the other parts for personal preparation;
- one of the three weekly lessons, that of Wednesday, will be held in sync, at the scheduled time, via the Teams platform, instead of the classic face-to-face lesson; during the lesson the students will be able to intervene with their questions and give their contribution, as if they were present in the classroom. We recommend that each student - and in particular those enrolled in the first year - first obtain the Microsoft Teams credentials made available by Unimi, to test the functionality of the platform;
- the other two weekly lessons will consist of the publication on the Ariel portal of blocks of Power Point slides with texts, images and voice commentary on each slide; these lessons will remain on the portal available to students until the end of the course;
- the Ariel portal, to which all students of the Faculty of Humanities will have access, will be used by the teacher to give communications and notices, and to publish materials and texts presented and commented during the course, as has always been done in normal conditions;
- in case of impossibility to held the reception hours in presence, also the teacher / student interviews will be held through the Teams platform;
- the learning verification methods (exams) will not undergo substantial changes, except for the eventuality to conduct them through the Teams platform, instead of in attendance.
These modalities could be modified (and improved) in relation to the suggestions coming from the participants to bring the course closer to their needs and to guarantee effective and continuous teaching.
