Call for contributions VI eMadrid Workshop
Monday, 04 April 2016

The eMadrid Program, who is dedicated to R&D on educational technology in the Region of Madrid and funded by General Directorate of Universities and  Research of the Ministry of Education of the Region of Madrid in the context of the call for R & D Programs Technologies 2013, it requests contributions of academic and educational experiences, specially those who can considerate itself as a disruptive (in its broadest sense of the word).

The catchword of the workshop this year is “Unbundling Education”. With this, we want to say that it is taking place many initiatives that, in some way, breaks down the educative package as we know today and It weans of some parameters which take for granted. Such are for higher education: age range (from 18 years), duration of the studies(4 years for a degree), curriculums with little customization, indivisibility of subjects, how they teach, schedules, academic calendar (beginning in September), evaluation, certification(included at the end). What parameter can be flexible? Are there another academic packages more flexible?
