Skills and learning objectives

Being able to gather in an integral perspective the multidimensionality of the current crises as well as analyzing them in their different aspects (technical, economic, social, political and aesthetical) and identifying the particularity of their problems at each side. By that means, it is expected to offer the ability of anticipating possible situations in order to choose adequate changes. On the other hand, the outset of the course as an extended event and the possibility of contributing in different ways –facilitating round tables, participating in discussions, translating, elaborating materials, etc– offering the possibility of training in informational skills, team work, or linguistic competences, that will be acknowledged through the application of the “Open Badge” method implemented on a platform of hybrid learning. 


The course as expanded event will be supported by a scheme of blended learning. The face-to-face –and broadcasted– development is organized in four thematic blocks, corresponding to the before- and after- lunch sessions in which the corresponding speakers will expose their perspective that will be thematically confronted with another exposition in order to set up an open discussion with the rest of the present or distant participants.

Evaluation criteria

The obtained competences will be evaluated using the mission methodology, and the acknowledgement of different kinds of contribution through the Open Badge system, integrated in the Hybrid Learning platform. As long as the course is conceived as an expanded event –in both space and time– including previous and subsequent development, the effort –by the student who reaches the basic objectives– implies an effort of about 3 times the face-to-face stage, equivalent to 2.2 ECTS.

For the evaluation of the learning performance there are several vias:
  1. Presentation of a free academic paper in one of the thematic axis. Upon review of the proposed papers, qualitative papers could be published. To that end, an abstract proposal suffices and a deadline will be established for the presentation of final papers. The proposed argument can be argued in the round tables. Independently of whether the article is published or not, its elaboration will be counted as sufficient contribution of the participant, who will have the opportunity to learn about scientific publishing -assisted by teaching staff-.
  2. Abstract of the contributions done to at least 4 of the 5 thematic axis.
  3. If significant contributions to the debates of the round table are done (face-to-face through some of the online channels), these will be considered as sufficient contribution.
For the presentation of course works (deadline September 30th17h) two can be followed:

[A]  HYBRID-LEARNING (conducing to open-badge digital accreditation of the type shown on the right) through some of the following ways: 
(i) Publication of some of the work types mentioned above in an own blog using the hashtag #RS2013LE, which could for instance include a video of participant's presentation; 
(ii) Posting 12 tweets using the hashtag: #RS2013LE (whenever at least three participants are interested in). 

To this end, the interested participant needs to:
      1. send an email to Workshop director ( indicating the ways (s)he is going to develop her/his work together with the URL of her/his blog or Twitter own profile.
      2. post the corresponding contributions properly tagged.
    The participant will receive indications which will let her/him know own evolution within the course and finally the corresponding digital certification.

    [B]  Sending an email to workshop director ( including: (1) Student's name; (2) Degree (s)he aims, or accomplished studies; (3) works of type 1 or 2.
