Trayectorias de aprendizaje de jóvenes universitarios: concepciones, estrategias, tecnologías y contextos

Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación, PID2019-108696RB-I00. 2020-2022

The general objective of this project is to reveal the learning trajectories of university students, taking into account their conceptions, strategies, technologies and learning contexts.

Based on the general objective, the following specific objectives are proposed:

  1. Update and deepen research references around how young people learn, especially from the perspective of ‘learning lives’.
  2. Explore how young people learn from a series of individualized interviews to reveal and understand the conceptions, strategies, technologies and contexts related to their learning.
  3. Identify learning experiences of young people in different contexts in order to locate, relate and expand the concepts and learning strategies to which they refer.
  4. Detect the transits and movements in the ways of learning of young people between the detected contexts, as well as the role of virtual environments and digital devices.
  5. Carry out a thematic and biographical analysis of the different learning trajectories so that they can show the regularities and differences.
  6. Carry out discussion groups with students and university professors to contrast, expand and validate the results of the research.
  7. Carry out and implement an online questionnaire, based on the evidence on the conceptions, trajectories, strategies and use of technologies, which allows to contrast and validate the contributions of the research.
  8. Inquire about the role that gender can have in shaping how young people learn.
  9. Generate multimodal materials linked to the training of young people, which incorporate the processes and results of research.
  10. Disseminate the research process and results through publications and contributions to congresses, knowledge transfer activities and participation in national and international networks using the potential of digital platforms.
