eveloping All Round Education (DARE+) is an innovative Project in the context of the European Higher Education Area and student-centred competence based learning. During two years (2014-2016) the DARE+ partnership has evaluated how university students could improve the DARE+ generic competences (ie. Teamwork, Leadership, Project Development and Management, Social Entrepreneurship, Communication, Intercultural Competence and Conflict Transformation) through the combination of formal learning with structured competence acquisition experiences outside the classroom.

http://erubrica.uma.es/ Participating Institutions: Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona; Universidad de Barcelona; Universidad de Granada; Universidad de León; (Coord.) Universidad de Málaga; Universidad Politécnica de Madrid; Universidad de Vigo; Universidad de Coimbra (Portugal); Universidade Sta. Catarina (Brasil); Universidad de Colima (México); Universidade Federal do Paraná (Brasil); Kölm University (Germany), Harvard University (EEUU), Stockholm University (Sweden) y Grupo Euroformac. Duration: 3 years, From: 01/01/2014 to: 31/12/2017 Lead researcher: Manuel Cebrián de la Serna The Practicum is one of the most specific research topics in the field of university education. Despite the Practicum’s long history as a topic of research, there are still some important aspects worth researching, especially following the recent degree changes, which have lead to an increased importance of credits and presence in all degrees, the need to study in the learning environments and collaboration between Company – University. Likewise, the boom in practices based on ICTs, such as digital portfolios, poses the need to prop up technological solutions and methods with rigorous research studies, especially due to wide popularity of ICTs in général. The supervision process in the Practicum clearly requires communication and follow-up to be done remotely, by using ePortfolios. In addition to competence-based assessment and the need for students to provide learning évidences, the supervision process in the Practicum also poses the need to analyse students’ ability to carry out such processes, as well as the need to find out the best supervision methods to be used with eportfolios. Amongst the eportfolio’s elements, we find a tool for design, communication and competence-based assessment known as the eRubric. This project aims to consolidate a research line that has already been undertaken with R+D+i [EDU2010-15432], and which currently intends to expand to different researchers and Centres of Excellence in Spain and other countries [Harvard University –EEUU-; Colonia University –Germany-; Sined –México-; Universidad Federal do Paraná and Sta. Catalina –Brasil- y Stockholm University –Sweden-]. The previous project R+D+i was investigated on subjects with class attendance, without the mediation of distance-learning. Such circumstances have therefore been exempt from the extra dimension that technology often gives human communication. In addition, no research studies have been conducted on the highly specific field of the Practicum, nor on the supervision of distance-learning competences. Distance learning, which represents a teaching method undoubtedly on the rise as a great technology mediator. eRubric evaluation falls within the concept of formative assessment; it is valuable for both the formal and non-formal education systems (vocational training, the unemployed, training of civil servants, etc.) both public and private companies. The aims of the present project are as follows: G.Obj. 1. Characterize of technologies to assess the learning process during the Practicum of different degrees at Faculties of Educational Sciences in Spain. G.Obj. 2. Studying the different models and processes of learning assessment by using eRubrics in the Practicum. G.Obj. 3. Analysing the student-teacher communication generated by the use of eRubrics at University and practice center, based on an understanding of the evaluated competences and proof of learning in the Practicum. G.Obj.4. Development of educational products and services to federate practical compay and centers with initial training institutions. Expected results:a. Evaluation of the supervision model. b. Empirical results about supervision model and technology-mediated communication between supervisors, tutors and students. c. A international portal of resources, training and guidance for supervisors and tutors where they can access training programs in massive formats and use the service for formative assessment eRúbric. d. Strengthen the network of Spanish and international partners.
