THE BOLOGNA PROCESS AND ITS IMPLEMENTATION IN SPAIN. EDUCATIONAL INNOVATION IN THE SCHOOL OF TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE OF MADRID
Education in the University is in a crucial point at this moment, because of the Bolonia issue.
A better planning in learning area is necessary, so that the education is more effective. We need the new range of curricula, courses… etc. which are based on a complete education and training. And this implies the use of the new technologies and the adaptation of the previous systems of teaching to the evolution of means.
We can modify our lessons with the new technologies, or using traditional methods with other approaches. It is as well the moment for the creation of educative Innovation groups. It is for that reason that it seemed important for us, to analyse the studies that had been done in this field or which of them are going to be carried out, to obtain future lines of action, to face up the challenge that integration to the European Space of High level Education and the world-wide Promotion of an European system of Education Superior entails to us.
We are going to study the different educational methodologies in which at the moment we are working and to compile the educational experiences developed in the University School of Technical Architecture of the Polytechnical University of Madrid (UPM), applied to several different Educational Units, that have been adapted to the Bologna process.
We will study the new technologies and we will see its influence in the formation of professionals. We are being present at the principle of a great revolution in the field of the learning. From the invention of the press there has not been a technological innovation of as much importance for the educative system like education with the new technologies. It is evident that the present situation of education, is not definitive. The new technologies do not have to be necessarily advisable in the educational context. Its use in teaching must be highly just.
We must be prepared for the changes that the society demands us. The teacher must play its role of training informer and teaching. We are going to study the different educational methodologies in which at the moment we move, in the lessons from the degree titles, and emphasizing teaching in other languages. We have the experience of two years teaching with the new items, now is the time to realise what The Bologna Process and its implementation means.
