Apprendistato e formazione psicosociale: un’esperienza di conduzione di moduli di socializzazione e competenze relazionali per apprendisti artigiani

Sartori R. – Perini M. (2015)

Il contributo riporta l’analisi di un’esperienza formativa, tenutasi nell’ambito dei percorsi di formazione previsti all’interno dei contratti di apprendistato, volta a facilitare lo sviluppo di competenze relazionali nei partecipanti attraverso l’utilizzo delle cosiddette illusioni ottico-geometriche e delle figure ambigue. Questi particolari strumenti sembrano essere ideali per consentire alle persone in formazione di entrare nella dimensione del dubbio su ciò che vedono, credono, pensano e dicono.

Big Five for work and organizations: FLORA (Role Related Personal Profile), an Italian personality test based on the Five-Factor Model and developed for the assessment of candidates and employees, Quality and Quantity

Sartori R., Ceschi A., Costantini A., Scalco A. (in press)

The needs for personality assessment in organizations are peculiar. For example, personality measures for the assessment of candidates or employees should be related to job performance. Even strong correlations between personality tests and job performance might not be sufficient, though, because some tests make use of a language people working in organizations are not accustomed to and, therefore, the personality profiles obtained by those tests may sound meaningless or even abstruse to organizational managers and decision makers. The paper reports the results of the qualitative actions and the quantitative operations carried out in order to create and validate a new Italian personality test (named FLORA) based on the Five-Factor Model (FFM) and expressly developed for the assessment of specific professional profiles in organizations. The qual-itative actions consisted of 32 interviews with 16 job profiles.

Motivazioni al volontariato e rischi psicosociali

 Sartori R., Ceschi A. (2015)

Lo scopo della presente rilevazione è stato indagare quali motivazioni dichiarano i soccorritori volontari in ambulanza di Croce Verde Verona per la loro scelta di volontariato. Inoltre, sulla scia della ricerca pubblicata da Fassio e Galati (2002) relativa a 110 volontari della Croce Rossa, e nell’ipotesi che differenti caratteristiche socio-ana-grafiche si correlino a differenti motivazioni (Patterson, 2001), si è inteso indagare se esistono differenze di motivazioni dichiarate (autocentrate vs eterocentrate, intrinseche vs estrinseche) tra diversi gruppi di volontari: maschi vs femmine, giovani vs anziani, single vs accoppiati; e in quale dire-
zione vanno, eventualmente, queste differenze.

Newcomer nurses’ organisational socialisation and turnover intention during the first 2 years of employment

Tomietto M., Rappagliosi C.M., Sartori R., Battistelli A (2015)

Aim: The aim of this study was to determine which organisational socialisation contents affect turnover intention in newcomer nurses within their first 2 years of employment.
Background: Strategies to decrease turnover are a priority for improving organisational stability, reducing costs and enhancing effective nursing care.
Materials and methods: A cross-sectional design was employed, and standardised scales were used. The sample was divided into three groups: 0–6, 7–12 and 13–24 months of employment. Regression analyses were performed. Leggi tutto “Newcomer nurses’ organisational socialisation and turnover intention during the first 2 years of employment”

Clinical learning in nursing education as a factor to enhance organizational socialization in newcomer nurses

Tomietto M., Rappagliosi C.M., Sartori R., Battistelli A. (2014)

Background: Clinical learning in nursing education has a pivotal role in enhancing clinical competences of nursing students. Moreover it provides an anticipatory knowledge of the organizational contexts in which nursing care is delivered.The aim of this study was to demonstrate the role of clinical learning in nursing education to enhance post-graduation organizational entry.
Method: A retrospective cross-sectional design was used. A sample of 250 newcomer nurses was enrolled in hospital settings. The mean age was 32.1 years (SD 7.95) and 79.2% participants were female. An adaptation of 3 items of Clinical Learning Environment and Supervision Scale, Organizational Socialization Inventory and validated items to assess turnover intention and therapy errors rate were used. Structural Equation Modelling was performed. Leggi tutto “Clinical learning in nursing education as a factor to enhance organizational socialization in newcomer nurses”

Framework for Analyzing Secondary Teacher Education Programs

Adula Bekele Hunde, Giuseppe Tacconi

This article aimed to set framework for conducting comparative study on secondary teacher education programs with the intention of shedding light on areas worth the study to the end of sharing good practices across the contexts. To this end, the study made use of literatures produced so far on outstanding teacher education programs. In addition, the researchers own experiential knowledge on teacher education of different contexts used as an asset. Finally, the study came up with ten thematic areas as a framework for conducting holistic analysis of teacher education programs. Specific points deserve special focus in relation to each thematic areas were also outlined.

Studying teamwork and team climate by using a business simulation: How communication and innovation can improve group learning and decision-making performance

Andrea Ceschi, Ksenia Dorofeeva, Riccardo Sartori

Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate how dimensions related to teamwork and team climate can influence decision making and learning of teams (performance). In order to understand which factors are more effective, several relevant group and team characteristics drawn from classical literature on groups and more recent empirical team simulation research have been considered.

Business Games and Simulations: Which Factors Play Key Roles in Learning

Andrea Ceschi, Riccardo Sartori, Giuseppe Tacconi, Dorina Hysenbelli

Abstract

The paper reports the results of an empirical study on the effects and impact of a specific business game, which is also a team competition, treated as an innovative teaching tool in learning. The paper starts by introducing business games and simulations as methods able to improve learning experiences and goes on by dealing with the specific business game simulation used for the aims of our research. Considering the most relevant empirical studies on business games and simulations, the following four factors were extracted in order to test their importance for learning: Decision-Making Experience (DME), Teamwork (T), Simulation Experience Satisfaction (SES), Learning Aims (LA). Each construct has been investigated by using a questionnaire administrated to 48 participants of the Stock Market Learning Simulation divided into 10 teams. Results show the importance of these factors in detecting critics aspectal of learning using a business game simulation.

Cooperate Or Defect? How an Agent Based Model Simulation on Helping Behavior Can Be an Educational Tool

Andrea Ceschi, Dorina Hysenbelli, Riccardo Sartori, Giuseppe Tacconi

Abstract
Over the last years, Agent Based Models (ABMs) have become an important instrument to simulate social complex phenomena. At the same time, they have shown interesting implications for learning activities. To this purpose, we report a simulation on helping behavior carried out by means of an Agent Based Model (ABM) based on four types of different virtual agents: Warm-Glow Cooperators (WG), who give help because it makes them feel better; Gratitude Cooperators (GC), who give help because they previously received help; Cooperators (C), who give help because of both the reasons mentioned above; Defectors (D) who do not give help at all. We explore the pro-social behavior of each type of agents and the system where they live for a certain amount of time in different situations. This specific ABM shows, in the most effective way, why we should increase the level of helping behavior in the population. Leggi tutto “Cooperate Or Defect?
