Course in Analysis and Production of Teaching Materials


Didactic materials are constructed from tools or environments that technology makes available to the teacher in order to favor the processes of understanding in their classes. Without forgetting about the chalk and blackboard, today we carry out simulations in virtual environments thanks to new technologies, promoting good teaching practices.

The uses we make of them, the hypotheses that justify their inclusion and the processes of evaluation and reflection on the given uses are key dimensions to understand the educational value of technology in the classroom.

The course includes content, tutoring, facilitation, individual and group activities, forums and debates.


Objectives

The main objectives of the course are that students:

  • Acquire and incorporate new knowledge, and apply it in a specific area.
  • Apply the concepts, principles, theories and methodology to new or little-known environments, and operate with the models.
  • Make judgments based on criteria, external standards or personal reflections.
  • Develop self-directed and autonomous training and research, together with a positive attitude towards fundamental rights, specifying these principles in cooperative learning and respect for scientific and research ethics.
  • Critically analyze your experience as language learners and/or teachers, according to the new learning models.
  • Innovate in the design of instruments and resources for evaluating the different individual and contextual variables that affect the process of acquiring communicative linguistic competence.
  • Manage multilingual learning environments with special attention to the current intercultural situation (migration, relations between countries, etc.) that generates constant situations of multilingual and multicultural communication.

General competences

  • Autonomously consult the specific sources of information and documentation in the area of knowledge of Applied Linguistics to language teaching, select and organize them, in order to incorporate new knowledge.

  • Apply the knowledge acquired to the academic activity in the field of Spanish as a foreign language.
  • Innovate in the design of instruments and resources for evaluating the different individual and contextual variables that affect the process of acquiring communicative linguistic competence.
  • Manage multilingual learning environments with special attention to the current intercultural situation (migration, relations between countries, etc.) that generates constant situations of multilingual and multicultural communication.
