Abstract:This work presents the methodology and analyzes the results of the experience of the use of infographics in the university environment, within the project "Infographics applied to university teaching", supported by the Institute of Educational Sciences -ICE- of the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia -UPV-.
We analyze the results obtained after the presentation of the infographics, the reflections obtained by the students, the conclusions drawn after analyzing the group work and their evaluation through rubrics. We also analyze the free infographic platforms most used by students and the progress they have made in self-learning, peer interaction and student self-regulation.
The students have elaborated individual and group infographics throughout two courses in the project framework. Group infographics have focused on research that is proposed towards active and cooperative learning and seeks student self-regulation. In this work we will analyze the results obtained in the subject "Introduction to the Conservation and Restoration of Gilding and Polychromies" of the Degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage UPV.
The methodology of group infographics consists of assigning research topics to groups of four or five students. They select the contents and represent them through online infographics, using free platforms that allow collaborative work. After that, the groups of students present the infographics in the classroom, explaining their conclusions and assessing the impact on their learning, answering some questions posed by the teacher and holding a peer discussion.
Final conclusions would help us to improve the use of this learning tool and also to asses better the students depending on the online platform used.
