3 Dear First Year Students, Welcome to the! University studies are one of the most interesting and creative periods in our life. The Academic freedom as well as communication among young people with different background are two factors which contribute to the formation and maturation of perceptions, beliefs and attitudes towards life and society. Since its foundation in 1984 the has proved that is an innovative and dynamic Institution with an international profile. These characteristics are due to the scientific and administrative personnel as well as to the alumni and they determine the quality of the undergraduate and the postgraduate studies. This Study Guide aims to help you to adapt to the new environment of the University Community and to point to the fact that student life does not include only study and exams, but also socialization, leisure time, culture, freedom of expression of ideas as well as living in a high quality environment. I wish you all a Fruitful Academic Year! Professor Paris Tsartas Rector of the
4 The has been traveling for 25 years in a difficult route, which ended in its active and ambitious participation in the developments of the Greek as well as the international scientific community. Moreover, the Department has been established in social consciousness as a living cell of the University. Up to now, the Department s collective effort focuses on designating the quality of the academic work, as this is produced through multiple processes which are generated systematically, as well as on emphasizing the characteristic of innovation, both in its strategic development and in the formation of the study program. Innovation is attached to the dimension of the Educational Design, which the T.E.P.A.E.S considers as its main developing, holistic factor. The dimension of the Educational Design has an integrative character, as it is involved in all subjects through their interrelations. The undergraduate, the graduate and the doctoral programs, the Teaching Training Center for Preschool Teachers, the varying in-service programs, the very many research projects and the students (undergraduate and postgraduate) active participation in research constitute the physiognomy of the T.E.P.A.E.S, which works tirelessly in a multiform manner, forming step by step the profile of the contemporary educator as scientist, researcher and active citizen. The T.E.P.A.E.S constitutes a community which is based on collaboration, co-responsibility, interpersonal relations, common decisions and common achievements by all its members unexceptionally. As a University agent, the T.E.P.A.E.S undertakes the challenge to form an educational philosophy, which selects and suggests ways of understanding and experiencing reality, and also to organize new forms of living, which are characterized by social and political sensitivity. Moreover, through these forms of living society will exercise its right to be supported by a powerful scientific community, which runs research in a free and democratic manner, defending in this way people s right for critical knowledge. The President of the TEPAES Eleni Theodoropoulou Associate Professor

Research in TEPAES Each Division of the TEPAES has an established laboratory which is involved in activities that span both research and teaching. The laboratories carry out projects with strong national and European research partnerships Degree Awarded The Department of Preschool Education Studies and Educational Design, School of Humanities, awards the following title: «Bachelor of Preschool Education Studies and Educational Design». The degree is appointed upon successful completion of the Study Program i.e. the student should attend courses for at least 8 semesters and successfully complete 55 courses which correspond to 162 Credit Points or 240 ECTS. These prerequisites are determined by the General Assembly. The way to calculate the final grade is determined by the Ministerial Decision Φ141/Β3/2166 (Φ.Ε.Κ. 308/ τ. Β') and is common in all Academic Institutions. The final grade is the standardized means of the grades earned in all courses. In cases there are surplus Credit Points, these may be excluded from the calculation of the final grade upon application of the student. The final grade is noted on the certificate descriptively and numerically. The descriptive grading scale is defined as follows: α) «Excellent», for grades from 8.50 to b) «Very Good», for grades from 6.50 to 8.49 and γ) «Good», for grades from 5.00 to The numerical grade is noted with two decimal places. The swearing-in of a graduate student constitutes a compulsory process, which takes place in a festive ceremony in the presence of the University Assembly as well as fellow graduate students. The graduate student pledges commitment to science as well as to the principles that he/she was taught at the. The graduation ceremony takes place three times a year at the end of each exam period. The date and place of the graduation ceremony are defined by the University Assembly. The graduation ceremony is not related to the successful completion of the studies, but it constitutes a prerequisite for a student to get the certificate. In exceptional cases, when the graduate student is not able to be present at the graduation ceremony usually due to medical reasons the swearing-in process may be modified only upon decision of the Rector.

Teaching methods: The subject is taught on a weekly three-hour basis. Every three-hour session is supported with contemporary audio-visual material and technological means. Weekly sessions are organized as follows: First hour: common negotiation of an issue among teaching practitioner and students (lecture, conversation, workshop) Second hour: students projects presentation Third hour: contact and conversation with educators and specialists on the History of Education.

During each session, students are encouraged to express their questions and queries to the teaching practitioner as well as their views and experiences after their prompting appropriate didactic questions. Moreover, they are invited to develop a dialogue driven by the stimuli provided during the teaching and learning session. Moreover, except for personal contact and co-operation with the teaching practitioner students will be frequently provided with material and information related to the subject via . Assessment methods: Preparation for and about the subject demonstrates interest and active participation in the teaching and learning procedure. This is the only way one can understand and process the most important information and views and thus can be helped towards success when they are assessed. Students performance is assessed as follows: 1.
