TEACHING GUIDE DEVELOPMENT IN POSTGRADUATE STUDIES

One aspect to consider in the educational program of the University of Granada is the learning method in related to teaching in a masters degree. In this sense some basic considerations have to be taken into account in the learning development:

1) The subjects in these learning programs are related to specific and particular topics that are studied intensively over a relatively short period of time (about 2-4 weeks). The fact that the teaching period is short on time, do not disagree with the development of an educational program guide.

2) Learning concepts must be with a high scientific level since students are graduated.

3) If the subject allows it, theoretical learning should be alternated with practical training to develop a better assimilation of contents.

3) Difficulties associated with student not attendance (overlapping schedules with other subjects, etc.) and motivation (students often have to choose subjects that, if the master offer has some diversification, may not be of their total interest) can be manifested. In this sense a guide of autonomous work for students consisting in the proposal of a sequence of traced activities, would lead to the student to build their own knowledge promoting a participatory approach in the student.

4) According to evaluation criteria, it is particularly relevant to take into account the student participation: attendance, classroom attitude, presentations and discussion of scientific papers proposed, etc.

In summary, the aim of this paper is to show that the adjustment of professor plans should not only take place in the grades and degrees but also should be extended to the scheduling of subjects that are part of the master and postgraduate studies.
