L’esperienza del tirocinio rappresenta per gli/le studenti/esse del CdS L-19 un’occasione fondamentale per rafforzare la loro identità professionale. In particolare, essa consente di apprendere a gestire con consapevolezza e intenzionalità le dinamiche del lavoro educativo; fornisce un’occasione strutturata per la verifica delle conoscenze acquisite durante il percorso di studi; è in grado di creare un collegamento diretto tra la didattica universitaria e contesti lavorativi. Tuttavia, non sempre tale esperienza, per quanto fondamentale, è in grado di accompagnare gli studenti nel loro percorso di costruzione identitaria.Il progetto POT “SUPER”, a cui il CdS L-19 dell’Università di Catania ha preso parte, ha consentito di ripensare all’esperienza del tirocinio con una maggiore focalizzazione sui percorsi di autoapprendimento e autovalutazione degli/le studenti/esse. I referenti del progetto hanno organizzato un percorso di self-assessment per i/le tirocinanti, finalizzato a descrivere le esperienze realizzate e a individuare le competenze acquisite durante il percorso di tirocinio. Il presente contributo analizza la costruzione del percorso, che ha richiesto una sua rimodulazione in considerazione del COVID, e i primi risultati conseguiti.
