Service Learning in the Bachelor's Degree in Infant and Primary Education

Communicative skills:

  • Coordination: Janaina Minelli de Oliveria Ramos (janaina.oliveira(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Organisation: Espai Blanquerna Group
  • Summary: In this experience, both students and entities contribute and receive in equal measure. Entities need to express to the public the activities they carry out and the goals they pursue. The students of Habilidades Comunicativas develop digital competence and creativity by creating four communicative pieces. The entities contribute content to the pieces created by the students according to their interests and receive in return a video, a podcast, an infographic and a comic. The students contribute their creativity, motivation in contact with the entities and, in return, they have a real recipient for the work carried out in the framework of the subject Communication Skills.

Knowledge and use of foreign language II

  • Coordination: Edward Lockhart (edwardalvar.lockhart(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Organisation: Public libraries of the Tarragona region.
  • Summary: In groups, the students prepare a one-hour storytelling session in English that they will give in a public library in the province of Tarragona. In this way, we encourage the children of the province to have more direct contact with the library in their area, extending the use of English outside the school context and making the work of the students much more real, and therefore significant.

Organization of the school space, materials and teaching skills

  • Coordination: Mercè Gisbert Cervera (merce.gisbert(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)
  • Organisation: L'Arrabassada School, Torreforta School and Mossèn Ramon Bergadà School.
  • Summary: The general purpose of the project is to improve the initial practical training of teachers through a strategy of collaboration between the university and schools. On the one hand, the school contexts are used as real scenarios for training and research and, on the other, the university works with them to create innovative teaching material resources tailored to their needs. According to the latest government reports and scientific literature, the improvement in the quality of the training of future teachers involves offering a more practice-oriented training. In this process, combining theory and practice in real work contexts becomes the key element to train teachers and develop their professional skills. Specifically, we focus on the development of digital competence, which is an interdisciplinary competence of the curriculum that future teachers will be required to teach and it must be included in various subjects on the degree programme. Likewise, it is a growing need for school teachers and it requires an institutional response. This experience was undertaken in conjunction with the Bachelor's Degree in Pedagogy.

Teaching and learning of languages ​​and reading and writing II

  • Coordination: Francesca Segarra Ibáñez (francisca.segarra(ELIMINAR)@urv.cat)

One day a week, conversation groups are held where students programme activities designed to access the language in a much more practical way.
