Master Diary – June and July report

MASTER COURSE

EU TRANSPARENCY AND CORRUPTION PREVENTION POLICIES WITHIN PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

JUNE AND JULY REPORT

Even June and July are gone!

The last modules of the course are successfully completed with the involvement of all teachers and students, now experts in using the electronic platform for distance lessons.

The most important challenge of this phase was module 6: “learning by doing”.

During this last module, the whole class has been divided into 3 groups/teams of 5 students. Each team had its own “Instructor”: an ANAC expert who guided the group in its work.

The task of each group was to create a code of conduct or an anti-corruption plan. Each instructor managed the work plan of her group and provided the team with all the knowledge and indications necessary to write and deliver the final group work. Each instructor assisted the group in drafting an anti-corruption plan or code of conduct as a unitary product of the team’s work (therefore only 1 code or plan was required for each group).

This objective has been achieved through online interactions between each group and each instructor and, by the end of module six, each group delivered their collective work. Each work was corrected together with the group and evaluated by each instructor. The evaluations have all been very positive and each group has successfully completed the work with excellent results.

The final phase of the master course will now consist of the individual study of each student who must present their own final work by the end of the master course. So, good job to each of them!
