Guide to good professional practices.Final Master's Project (6 ECTS)Faculty profileThe Master, due to its clear professional orientation, has a teaching staff from very different fields of specialization in its teaching, research and professional career. Noteworthy is the high participation of professors from the areas of labor law, business organization and social psychology.
On the other hand, more than half of the teaching staff are professionals, company managers and consultants, especially in human resources, with recognized professional experience.MethodologyFor distance or virtual teaching (Academic Part), the teaching / learning methodology to be used in all subjects (Subject 1-Subject 12) is similar. The course follows a flexible pedagogical model, without defined schedules without the need for physical presence in the classroom, based on the modality of e-learning, online training or tele-training. In this context, the learning process becomes an active process and not a mere reception-memory of content, where new information is integrated and related to what is already possessed. The study process will be reinforced with the provision of a space to work in groups, where students have a private forum to carry out practices or work and send their proposals to the rest of their classmates. Communication between members is possible through synchronous (in real time) and asynchronous (in different space and time) tools.
It is, therefore, a learning model based on several principles:
Self-learning: both the course materials and a large part of the practical activities are designed so that each student can advance at their own pace and can check their progress at all times. That is, they learn independently individually.
Collaborative work: students not only learn in isolation, but part of the knowledge will be built in groups, thanks to the interaction of the course members across the campus.
Tutorial support: the teaching team will guide the group in this learning process by individually monitoring the participation, effort and results of each student throughout the master's degree. Regarding the face-to-face workshops, the methodology used is also related to teaching-learning and teacher-student interaction, so that they can contribute to the acquisition of basic, specific and general skills provided by the student. The methodology must be related to theoretical classes and participatory practices, resolution of activities and case studies and outdoor training.
