The student learns by doing; there is no learning without action.
The teacher relates the knowledge, skills and previous experiences to the interests, expectations and cognitive characteristics of the students.
The students "learn together", so they are motivated not just by their own learning, but to increase the achievements of others, forming a social and academic learning experience.
The teacher acts as an advisor and as a guide of the learning towards a professional application.
Constructive and discovery learning
The student inquires and explores to understand the concepts. This allows you to build cognitive structures by comparing, relating and reorganising new concepts with those you have already dealt with.
The teacher encourages the students to learn for themselves, developing self-learning. The student is seen as an active and cooperative agent, a protagonist in the construction of his or her own learning.
The teacher is sensitive to the diversity and different learning styles of the students, adjusting the training activities to suit their needs.
The development of creativity and initiative allows knowledge to be perceived as open, unfinished, something which can always be redefined and understood from other points of view.
Complete planning: you will have the entire organisation of your studies at your disposal from the beginning.
Live virtual classes, adapted to working hours. They will be recorded in case you cannot attend, or you want to watch them again.
