Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2019-20

La planificación didáctica de la asignatura se ha hecho teniendo en cuenta: 1) Las características de los alumnos; 2) El tiempo total disponible para la enseñanza y el aprendizaje de las ciencias experimentales en el plan de estudios y 3) las prescripciones y orientaciones legislativas sobre el área. Estas restricciones se resumen en:

  • Casi el 75 % de los alumnos no ha recibido enseñanza sobre física, química, biología o geología desde 3º de ESO.
  • La mayoría de ellos tienen actitudes iniciales negativas hacia la enseñanza/ aprendizaje de las ciencias (especialmente hacia la física y la química), excepto hacia la biología.
  • De un total de 240 créditos del plan de estudios, todos los alumnos recibirán solo 12 créditos sobre enseñanza/aprendizaje de las ciencias. 
  • Tanto desde las prescripciones como desde las orientaciones legales se promueve una forma de enseñar ciencia coherente con las prácticas científicas (dentro de lo factible en el nivel de la educación primaria) y se prescribe el fomento de competencias claves que también pueden identificarse como consustanciales a las prácticas científicas.

Esta situación ha hecho aconsejable elaborar un programa común, con continuidad, para las dos asignaturas sobre enseñanza y aprendizaje de las ciencias experimentales, anteponiendo:

  • Profundidad frente a amplitud
  • Calidad y selección de los contenidos a un tratamiento superficial de todos los contenidos científicos que podrían afectar a la etapa primaria
  • Coherencia metodológica entre lo que se dice y cómo se desarrollan las clases



Course content (verified by ANECA in official undergraduate and Master’s degrees)

General Competences (CG)

  • CG1 : Identify information needs and then find, analyse, process, evaluate and communicate it effectively, critically and creatively.
  • CG2 : Plan, organise and manage processes, information, problem-solving and projects. Possess initiative, entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to generate new ideas and actions.
  • CG3 : Show oral and written language skills for teaching (official languages of the Region of Valencia and foreign languages) and the ability to communicate on different levels in different registers.
  • CG4 : Use the new information and communication technologies to learn, communicate and share knowledge.
  • CG5 : Work in a team, collaborating and leading when necessary.
  • CG7 : Capacity for criticism and self-criticism, giving reasoned judgements and ethical, professional and personal commitment. Motivated to improve quality.
  • CG8 : Understand learning as a global, complex and transcendent fact, control one's own learning and mobilise all kinds of knowledge, adapting to new situations and connecting knowledge as a means of creating new knowledge.
  • CG9 : Assess the social and environmental impact of actions taken in one's field.


Specific Competences (CE)

  • CE10 : Use assessment in its pedagogical function, and not only for accreditation, as an element that regulates and promotes improved teaching, learning and the training process itself, assuming the need for continuous professional development through reflection, self-assessment and research into one's own practice.
  • CE11 : Understand that education in general and teaching and learning processes in particular are complex. Assume that working as a teacher means improving, updating and adapting to scientific, pedagogic, social and cultural change. Understand the importance of taking part in innovation and research projects related to teaching and learning, and of introducing innovative proposals into the classroom.
  • CE12 : Express oneself orally and in writing with the necessary fluency and precision in Catalan and Spanish to be able to teach at primary level and also use a foreign language as a vehicle in certain classroom situations.
  • CE3 : Organise teaching in the framework of the epistemological paradigms of the subjects of the degree course, combining one's knowledge of the discipline with the transversal and multidisciplinary knowledge needed for the respective levels of education, showing one's understanding of the learning aims of the areas of knowledge laid down in the primary education curriculum.
  • CE6 : Encourage students to act as responsible and critical citizens to promote the shared construction of democratic standards of coexistence and work together to resolve problematic situations and conflicts. Be able to analyse social inequalities in the framework of the complex education-school relationship and the role of teachers in reproducing and/or transforming them.
  • CE7 : Design and develop educational projects, programming units, contexts, activities and materials, including digital material, to allow the curriculum to be adapted to the diverse nature of the students and promote the quality of the contexts in which the educational process takes place, thus guaranteeing their well-being.
  • CE8 : Assume the ethical dimension of teaching, acting responsibly, making decisions and critically analysing educational concepts and proposals proceeding from both research and innovation and from educational administration.
