The development of the European Research Area should make it possible, in the field of educational research, a return to the EHEA, boosting it and serving as an agent of change for its development. A continuation of the present study should consider internationalization as a reality made by all.
It is evident that the harmonization of studies in the framework of the EHEA was one of the tenets of the recent reform of the curricula in the Spanish university. The possibility that European students could move to study or supplement their studies in other countries (since the implementation of the Erasmus program, without which the EHEA would not be understood) made it necessary to develop procedures for the recognition of studies between different national higher education systems.
The consolidation of this mobility programme with the ERASMUS + Programme (Version 3 01/14/2015) emphasises the consolidation of the system and its relationship to the educational, social, and economic life of Europe. The harmonization of studies, based on same skills and qualification framework , enables the recognition of studies and, in the case of practicum (the focus of the present Project), must seek the harmonization of structures of studies, methodologies, dedication and evaluation systems.
This is not easy and will require a strategic decision of the heads of the organizations, without forgetting the direct link between the training of educators and the education systems of each country. How are these recognitions being conducted? What protocols are being used? How are these protocols developed? To what extent is it possible to establish systems for mutual recognition between education studies in different countries? Can the convergence in the EHEA be in some way apart from education studies due to the lack of a similar convergence in other educational levels?
Based on European projects Tuning (2003), DeSeCo (2002) and Reflex (2007) and on the basis of the objectives set in the document "Europe 2020: A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth" (2010); the Commission proposes to the EU five goals for the end of this decade, which should set the standard of the process and be translated into national objectives: employment, research and innovation, climate change and energy, education and fight against poverty.
Education, research and innovation are success factors that the Commission understands that may provide solutions to the crisis we are experiencing in Europe. One of the goals set for Spanish universities is its internationalization, strategic objective that should not be set aside in a situation marked by the need to resolve urgent needs related to the economic situation, that have arisen in the university.
Regarding to the present project, it is significant that its objectives are framed in concrete actions that were already defined in the document "Estrategia Universidad 2015" (University Strategy 2015) (2011): "Increase internationalization of the university offer, offer interuniversity and internacional master degrees, introduce international reference doctoral programmes, promote training and skills to work in an open international environment, increase the number of foreign teachers, researchers and students, develope support services for the arrival, stay and departure of foreign students and visitors, participate in networks, projects and international research and education programmes.
Objectives of the project:
1. Development of the Guide for Institutional Diagnosis,
2. Interviews with the responsibles of Institutional Relations and university practices professors/tutors.
3. Discussions groups with the responsibles of the practicum at university and the responsibles in schools and institutions of practices.
4. Interviews with students who are performing the practicum.
5. Data Analysis
6. Design of the institutional e-portfolio.
7. Results on “good practices”. Design of support guides for institutions and / or companies.
