The curriculum of official Master’s degrees gives the Practicum a core role in student training. The Practicum is the best way to articulate theoretical and practical knowledge. It is a chance to discover the functionality of what has been learned and to find out the applications of what is being studied; it offers relevant contact with the professional world and is therefore an important source of professional and personal enrichment; it also develops the critical and self-critical thinking needed to ask questions and is thus an essential driver of scholarly research and overall academic and professional development.
The Blanquerna–URL Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences has signed English teaching agreements with early childhood and primary schools where students can do their practicum.
The practicum can be done in different settings:
The Practicum entails 120 hours of practices at the chosen setting, preferably between the months of February and May (second semester).
Personal Development Seminar
The Practicum includes a personal and professional development workshop worth 3 ECTS called the Personal Development Seminar; the purpose of this workshop is to contribute to the personal development of Master’s students. For this reason, they are given a plan for acquiring emotional and social competencies, in addition to reflecting on their profession and on the service or collaborative attitudes that this profession entails. To develop these professional and personal competencies, students will work on acquiring leadership skills, teamwork skills, emotional management, assertive communication and creativity.
