Abstract

Se presenta una experiencia educativa universitaria en el marco de una red de Aprendizaje-Servicio en Pedagogía Hospitalaria denominada INèDITnet dentro del contexto de la Universitat de les Illes Balears. INèDITnet es una red ApS dirigida a fomentar la innovación y la transferencia de conocimiento, de manera transdisciplinar, entre profesorado, personal investigador y alumnado universitario. INèDITnet tiene dos objetivos fundamentales: por un lado, generar escenarios de aprendizaje activo y de sensibilización a estudiantes universitarios para posibilitar mejorar sus competencias académicas y su proceso formativo; y, por otro, ofrecer una plataforma de servicio dirigida a colaborar en la consecución de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenibles de la Agenda 2030 y, de manera especial, dar respuesta a las necesidades psicopedagógicas de niños, niñas y jóvenes en situación de enfermedad, especialmente de una enfermedad poco frecuente o enfermedad rara. Este trabajo pretende cartografiar la experiencia educativa que está forjando INèDITnet. La metodología surge de un análisis sistemático y hermenéutico de los proyectos académicos realizados dentro de la red. Los resultados se centran en la sistematización y el análisis de las propuestas realizadas. En suma, INèDITnet promueve, en armonía con los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de la Agenda 2030, formación e innovación educativa comprometida con las necesidades de colectivos vulnerables, posibilitando escenarios psicopedagógicos que mejoren la calidad de vida. Palabras clave: Aprendizaje-Servicio; Pedagogía Hospitalaria; Innovación Docente; Formación Universitaria: Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible.

Muchas universidades han iniciado procesos complejos y diversos de institucionalización del Aprendizaje-Servicio como forma de atender a objetivos tanto de profesionalización como de compromiso social. En el artículo se analizan el conjunto de experiencias de Aprendizaje-Servicio desarrolladas en una universidad durante el curso 2018-2019 para poder entender este fenómeno y crear conocimiento sobre su diversidad interna como institución. En la información recogida a través de informes escritos y entrevistas se analizan las experiencias en tres dimensiones: orientación al aprendizaje, impacto social y forma de organización. Los resultados muestran la amplitud de objetivos que se pretenden alcanzar, así como las estrategias puestas en marcha, tanto a nivel educativo como de servicio. Asimismo, se han podido perfilar tres grandes patrones en la forma de organizar las experiencias de aprendizaje-servicio. En las conclusiones se reflexiona sobre cómo las estrategias de Aprendizaje-Servicio orientadas al bien común pueden contribuir a trascender el actual modelo universitario.

El nuevo contrato social entre generaciones. Elogio de la Profiguración (2021). Madrid, La Catarata Fidel Molina-Luque La Profiguración se refiere al acuerdo y el reconocimiento necesario entre generaciones en la sociedad actual. Este novedoso concepto trata de poner en valor la importancia de la interdependencia entre personas de todas las edades, con el fin de que tanto jóvenes como adultos y mayores podamos alcanzar una vida plena en todas sus etapas.

The long-standing vision of universities as the “ alma mater ” of students and graduates is a demonstration of its role as sustaining the person, the expert/professional, and the citizen. This role has persisted in the face of rising global challenges such as the emergence of new learning spaces, the growing diversity of publics, the call for productivity and performativity, and the hope for a significant engagement with the community and the public good. These sometimes conflicting tendencies have also stimulated higher education institutions to further pedagogical strategies that articulate in novel ways the classical elements of learning: action/experience and reflection/theory. In this context, service learning received a new impetus, particularly in the post-Bologna European Higher Education Area, as universities were looking for ways in which to articulate the social dimension of HEI and their “third mission” as institutions not only committed to addressing and solving societal problems, but also committed to fostering public-minded alumni through powerful experiences of engagement for both the students and the community. This paper is based on the experience of Erasmus+project ESSA, a service earning based project focused on University social responsibility (USR). ESSA engaged four groups of students from three European universities (Edinburgh, Porto, and Kaunas) in conducting a 1-week on-site USR audit based on an ecologic and situated concept of social responsibility. We will consider the perceived impact of ESSA on 44 students through a thematic analysis of focus group discussions and student self-assessment reports produced during and after their participation in the USR audit.

In this article, 41 Service-Learning (SL) courses have been evaluated in 5 Spanish universities (4 public and 1 private), in order to determine whether they are SL initiatives or other type of educational practices. These experiences, which were implemented during the 2015/2016 academic year, covered degree programs from the five knowledge areas. Most of them involved Bachelor’s degree students and only one of them Master’s degree students. A qualitative methodology has been used, focused on content analysis and based on evaluations made by four experts. The analysis of the experiences points out an encouraging course of action for this methodology in the Spanish university system, showing a certain change in the teaching culture, as they all meet the basic requirements which, according to international literature, must be present in service-learning projects and are also considered as criteria for assessing quality in such projects. Finally, a three-way action is presented, to open new prospects of educational innovation and social responsibility through Service-Learning possibilities in Higher Education.

There is a great concern whether Physical Therapy students upon completion of their educational program are ready and equipped with the requisite skills to construct and implement a successful patient intervention with culturally diverse groups. The purpose of this study is to describe the professional and personal physical therapist development of Physical Therapy students after participating in Solidarity Activities in Collaboration with a Prisoner reinsertion program as a service-learning course. A qualitative approach was used. A convenience sample of twenty physical therapy students doing service learning and one teaching professor were included. Student diaries were analyzed. Semi-structured interviews were done to explore five students’ and the professor’s judgements. Internal and external observations and filling out structure field-notes were also used as data triangulation in order to build the conceptual model. The main findings include that the application of knowledge and practice of skills in different environments are the most important skills attained with this service learning. Five key themes emerged from the data analysis, namely: application of knowledge, adaptation to different environments, improving communication with patients, assisting people and providing treatment with self-confidence. A recommendation is that Physical Therapy programs include workplace practice in different environments to enhance the development of professionalism among students.

Civic thinking and civic attitude require values and norms for social togetherness and social engagement. Service learning and active-citizenship learning are high-impact pedagogies, well-documented as supporting civic-mindedness and a culture of democracy sustainably. Though our study is part of a broader research project, this brief research report already documents the impact of the two pedagogies on civic-mindedness and students' democratic awareness. Through a mixed-method design we implemented a quantitative survey (7 level Likert Scale) of undergraduate student learning outcomes of service learning with 55 students from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa and 41 students practicing active-citizenship learning at Salzburg University of Teacher Education. We found that the two pedagogies significantly support students' democratic awareness and civic attitudes. In addition to the survey, a qualitative analysis is in progress based on 23 focus group discussions, conducted to detail how the students experience themselves when they take on social responsibility, e.g., when they actively participate in improving their society. Our mixed, but narrowly focused, approach combined with well-established measuring tools and scales is a first study of how to assess Attitudes , one of the four fundamental principles of the Council of Europe‘s Competency Model for a Democratic Culture.

This book provides a reconstruction of Aristotelian character education, shedding new light on what moral character really is, and how it can be highlighted, measured, nurtured and taught in current schooling. Arguing that many recent approaches to character education understand character in exclusively amoral, instrumentalist terms, Kristjánsson proposes a coherent, plausible and up-to-date concept, retaining the overall structure of Aristotelian character education. After discussing and debunking popular myths about Aristotelian character education, subsequent chapters focus on the practical ramifications and methodologies of character education. These include measuring virtue and morality, asking whether Aristotelian character education can salvage the effects of bad upbringing, and considering implications for teacher training and classroom practice. The book rejuvenates time-honoured principles of the development of virtues in young people, at a time when 'character' features prominently in educational agendas and parental concerns over school education systems. Offering an interdisciplinary perspective which draws from the disciplines of education, psychology, philosophy and sociology, this book will appeal to researchers, academics and students wanting a greater insight into character education.
Purpose The purpose of this study is to know the contribution of service-learning (SL) on the awareness-raising and sensitivity with regards to sustainable development goals (SDGs) in physical education teacher education (PETE) programs. Design/methodology/approach The research used a qualitative methodology with a case study design from an ethnographic-interpretative approach. The participants were 81 higher education level students from the PETE program. For the collection of information, the following techniques and instruments were used: non-participant observation, students’ portfolios, focus groups and group-interviews. Findings The main findings show the teaching positive features of SL experiences in the PETE students. In alignment with the sustainable development model, the findings suggest that SL can boost and strengthen knowledge, comprehension, sensitivity and compromise in relation to the SDGs. It can be concluded that SL allows teacher educators to train socially critical professionals and to progress toward a sustainable development. Originality/value SL emerges as an appropriate pedagogical model to meet the educational needs of higher education and to face global challenges in relation to the sustainable development of the planet.
