A unique methodology based on personalized learning

According to Royal Decree 1393/2007, graduate studies must provide the student with both basic and sufficient academic training for professional practice and qualify them to continue studying and pursue a master degree. Master degree studies include advanced specialized and multidisciplinary training, the aim of which will be academic and professional specialization or embarking on research activities. Master degrees are required to access PhD studies, which are aimed at providing advanced training in the field of research and lead to preparing a PhD thesis and obtaining a PhD qualification. The master degrees have been adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and are structured in ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System), which make it possible to share a compatible credit system, comparable criteria and methodologies and a duration similar to that of European qualifications, with the aim of facilitating and promoting the mobility and incorporation of students into the European workforce. Master degree studies have a minimum of 60 credits and a maximum of 120 credits. This equates to one to two academic years. ECTS credits are characterized by being student-centered to ensure the student leads their own learning process. Each credit is equivalent to 25 hours of training and is used to count class hours (theoretical and practical), personal study, participation in seminars, assignments, external internships and assessment tests. During an academic year, a student can get a maximum of 60 full-time credits and 30 if they have a part-time job. The master degrees at Blanquerna-URL School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences are aimed at diploma and bachelor degree holders and graduates, as well as professionals in need of continuing education. Our master degrees are geared towards professionalization and address subjects and materials that require specialized treatment. Our School's master degrees feature:

Internships, an experience to introduce you to the labor market

The master degree students will do internships at the centers selected by the Department of Education, and will be distributed preferably by criteria of territorial proximity and in morning or afternoon shifts, taking into account the interests or needs of the student as much as possible.

The internship schedule and calendar will be agreed with each center between January and May. Students who are already working as teachers (in subsidized or public centers) will not be able to do the internship at their center and another will be sought to carry out the master degree internship.

  • The student carries out 210 on-site hours of internship in a classroom (or department) of an accredited collaborating center of the master degree. These internships are overseen by a supervising teacher.
  • Along with the face-to-face sessions at the center, the Master Degree Seminar is held at the School, with a minimum of 20 hours of group work per semester, facilitated by a teacher - tutor. The task is complemented by conferences and specific complementary seminars that are offered each academic year.
  • Finally, the corresponding 14 credits are completed with the preparation of the internship report and the Master's Thesis.

The MA Curriculum gives internships a central role in the training of students. The general objective of the Internship is to obtain direct knowledge of professional practice and obtain the skills for its correct development.

a) In-person work in the classroom:

  1. Seminars. Case study, problem solving.
  2. Practical class. Internships in the classroom

b) Supervised work outside the classroom: External internships, tutoring and supervised work.

c) Independent work by the student: Individual study and independent work, project-oriented learning.

The final master degree thesis, a prelude to entering the labor market

Students will have to prepare and deliver a project that will be overseen by a professor of the master degree within the framework of the Intership Seminar and the master degree thesis carried out in the second semester. This project will be publicly defended before an assessment panel made up of faculty members from the master degree program. It is recommended that one of the members of the panel be from outside the master degree course, but they must be a member of a graduate studies program at the Blanquerna-URL School of Psychology, Education and Sports Sciences.

The student will have ten minutes to defend the project. They will have to prioritize the issues they consider most relevant to the work and summarize them in a clear, precise, and complete manner.After the arguments are presented, the student will have to respond to observations, comments, and questions made by the members of the panel. The master degree project will be written in Catalan, however, with a prior written request from the director, the master degree academic management team (EGA) may authorize it to be presented in another language. In this case, a summary of the project will be required in Catalan.

The Final Master Degree Thesis is worth 6 ECTS within the Master Degree in Teacher Training overall, which means a dedication of between 150 and 180 hours of student work.

The Final Master Degree Thesis is open choice and the aim is for students to present an original and innovative proposal related to the educational areas in question (Secondary Education, Baccalaureate or Vocational Training). Seminar tutors can guide, profile and advise on the proposals received or make possible thesis suggestions. Through the module "Internship and the Final Master Degree Thesis" all the competencies and contents included in the Generic Module and in the Specific Module will be listed to correlate them to the action-reflection contextualized in real practice in the case of the Internship, and with an informed reflection, in the case of the master degree thesis, with the support of qualified and experienced professionals who will perform the duties of advisor.

The assessment criteria for the master degree thesis are concerned with the competences consolidated during the preparation process, the final product and the defense of the thesis itself. The final grade will thus be the result of various partial assessments:

  • Competencies consolidated during the preparation process: grades will be given for persistence and consistency in the different stages of the project preparation, and progression in the acquisition of the skills and attitudes necessary for the research and intervention. This assessment will be performed by the project advisor.
  • Product prepared: different aspects that are taken into account in most scientific publications will be assessed to ensure the coherence and quality of the research or intervention. The project director and the members of the Assessment Panel will issue a report prior to the defense, which will be released to the Graduate Studies Committee.
  • Competencies consolidated in the thesis defense: the clarity, accuracy, originality and quality of the oral presentation of the project will be assessed according to the conditions required for the presentation before an assessment panel. The final grade for the project will be issued by the Assessment Panel with the competencies specified in the curriculum.

Gender perspective

As the European Union points out, gender equality is not only a matter of social justice but also affects the results of teaching and research. Promoting gender equality in research and innovation is one of the European Commission's commitments, and it supports the explicit integration of a gender perspective in Horizon 2020 projects. However, this recommendation is often poorly understood and misapplied. Various documents are presented here with a view to contributing to a better understanding and application of the gender perspective in teaching and research.
