Estructura y metodología

Seek, obtain, process and communicate information (oral, printed, audiovisual, digital and multimedia), transform it into knowledge and apply it to teaching and learning processes in the subjects belonging to each specialization.

Specify the curriculum to be implemented at an educational center by participating in the collective planning thereof; develop and apply group and individual didactic methodologies adapted to the diversity of students.

Module II, Human and Social Sciences, is focussed on the two teaching specialities available to students according to their prior studies. These specialities are History and Geography on the one hand and Philosophy on the other. Both cases intend to analyse the educational value of these disciplines, whilst introducing resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, handling resources and information technologies and picking up the necessary skills to write an academic programme. Students are introduced to identifying teaching-learning problems and, as a complement to what they have seen in module I, this module aims to look in greater depth at "Content and Language Integrated Learning" (CLIL).

In Module III, Language and Literature, the focus is on the Spanish Language and Literature and Latin and Greek teaching specialities. Both cases intend to analyse the educational value of these disciplines, whilst introducing resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, handling resources and information technologies and picking up the necessary skills to write an academic programme. Finally, the module works on basic skills related to research and professional development.

In Module IV, Experimental and Natural Sciences, the focus is on the academic aspects of three of the secondary teaching specialities (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry and Biology and Geology). In addition to analysing the educational value of the disciplines, this module intends to look in depth at resources and techniques for learning and teaching them, particularly the experience of working in a laboratory, knowledge of the curricula, handling resources and information technologies, and picking up skills required to write an academic programme. In addition, students are introduced to identifying teaching-learning problems and working on basic skills related to research and professional development, plus the "Content and Language Integrated Learning" subject (CLIL) that might subsequently become the teaching context for their future teaching in Education.

Module V. Language Teaching, given in Spanish and English, provides students with knowledge of applied linguistics required by language teachers, the history and developments of language teaching, within the Common European Framework of Reference guidelines, paying close attention to teaching practice and research in the classroom. .

This Module pays close attention to skills training on giving classes in compulsory secondary education, designing educational activities, analysing teaching practice and the principles behind assessment in the foreign language area.

After providing basic training on the process of acquiring and learning languages in general, and the relevance of English as an international communication language, this Module focuses on teaching in a school context, considering how to develop the four basic skills (oral and written comprehension, oral and written expression), plus grammar and vocabulary. At the same time, it provides students with skills to design educational activities, programme contents and assess how the different facets of the language are being learnt.

It introduces the "Content and Language Integrated Learning" subject (CLIL) that might subsequently become the teaching context for their future teaching in Education.

 Module VI. Educational Guidance, intended fundamentally for educators, psychologists and teaching graduates (infant and primary), aims to find out about the processes and resources available to prevent problems involving learning, cohabitation, assessment issues and academic and careers guidance. Students are introduced to communication techniques within the guidance processes.

Aprendizaje Integral de Contenidos y Lenguas (AICLE)

Hoy más que nunca los profesores de la enseñanza Primaria y Secundaria deben hacer uso de la creatividad y la innovación para motivar a sus alumnos e inspirar el aprendizaje.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) o, lo que es lo mismo, Aprendizaje Integral de Contenidos y Lenguas (AICLE), es el método por el que se aprenden los contenidos de una asignatura en una segunda lengua. Se trata de usar la lengua para aprender mientras se aprende a usar la lengua misma.

En este curso los alumnos del máster se familiarizarán con esta metodología en la Educación Secundaria. Se estudia la base teórica y las razones prácticas que fundamentan la decisión de implementar esta metodología, y aprenderán cómo se implanta un curso con metodología CLIL / AICLE en los distintos contextos españoles.

Con la inclusión de programas de Aprendizaje de Contenidos Integrados en Lengua Extranjera en el sistema educativo español, crece la necesidad de ofrecer un contexto y un entendimiento más amplio de las competencias que se están desarrollando en los alumnos a través de dichos programas.

El curso está diseñado para abarcar los retos y dilemas que plantean estos programas y fomentar tanto la discusión de aspectos teóricos como idear soluciones eficaces que se puedan usar en la práctica"
