Teaching method

Methods that foster interdisciplinarity
The content of this Master’s degree spans several disciplines in the fields of human science, health science and science and technology, making interdisciplinarity a key feature. The combination of teachers and students from different backgrounds ensures true diversity in academic and life experience, which is put to good use throughout the degree course.

Variety of teaching strategies and diversity of learning situations
The educational methods used focus on the acquisition of analytical skills and the ability to learn independently. Several courses require students to undertake individual assignments and give oral presentations.
Some courses adopt an innovative, reflective teaching approach, enabling students to incorporate their prior learning and experience, both personal and professional. Some classes or parts of courses exploit the potential of e-learning, MOOCs, case studies, the “flipped classroom”, business portfolios, etc.

Methods that focus on hands-on experience
This Master’s degree has a highly practical emphasis, in the form of the internship, but also because some of the students may have personal or professional experience related to the issues discussed in class (equality, discrimination, etc.). The use of the students’ own experience is a cornerstone of the teaching approach utilized.

Methods that teach students how to conduct research
Several activities are designed to hone the students’ ability to set up and conduct a research project independently. The second term is devoted to writing their dissertation.
