One of the main objectives of the small luthiers is to provide students and teachers with creative autonomy, involving them in processes of contemporary artistic creation. On the one hand, the construction of the tools within a DIY philosophy will bring us closer to a craft concept that will reinforce the idea of an authentic artistic work that fights against the vision of precooked solutions as a recipe that ends up homogenizing learning and nullifying the true value artistic thought.
The line of research is to continuously use procedures to think reflectively and creatively and turn them into a way of dealing with diverse situations, a culture of thought in action. Betting on transdisciplinary research (frameworks, tools and strategies) promoting civic engagement with the aim of empowering future education professionals.
This research project, funded through grants for activities related to the recovery of the Democratic Memory and the victims of the Civil War and the Dictatorship, it is proposed to clarify the events that occurred, as well as their symbolic significance and, above all, their persistence in memory by going through eight decades of the life of images and will manifest itself in documents for schools, as well as visual material, projects for exhibition spaces, civic centers, or associations, giving rise to conferences and debates.
It is a project prepared by a team of teachers from the area of Sociology that teaches subjects focused on understanding the social structure and its implications for education in the degrees of Teacher of Early Childhood Education and Primary Education, and in the Master in Professor of Secondary Education at the University of Valencia and the University of Cantabria. The project uses cinema as a didactic tool for the analysis of social reality, specifically social inequalities. It is about viewing (one or more) films and analyzing them from the contents seen in the subject (bibliography, master classes), first individually and then in a group seminar in class. In this sense, it is an initiative that starts from previous experiences of similar characteristics (EspaiCinema) developed in the Faculty of Teaching of the University of Valencia.
INSTRUMENTARIUM XX1 is an innovative project whose main objective is the design, construction and validation of musical instruments for the 20th century, characterized by the hybridization between analog and digital, combining tradition, avant-garde and sustainability. The instruments, made with ecological materials, will have the possibility of amplification through an electrical-mechanical system based on low cost technology. Characteristics of these will be the ergonomics and adaptability to different ages and physical conditions, their robustness and portability. Its ability to generate new sounds and its detachment from a specific sound paradigm will facilitate the multicultural fit and the opening towards contemporary languages. The other objective is to validate the instruments created with people of all ages, through their active and inclusive participation in artistic creation processes. INSTRUMENTARIUM XX1 is conceived as an itinerant, installable, educational and cultural sound laboratory for quality creative and artistic development and that guarantees a society more committed to art and culture. Validation takes the form of plural intervention in formal, non-formal and informal educational and cultural contexts, pursuing another of the objectives, that of knowledge transfer. An investigation will be initiated that allows the improvement of benefits and actions through data obtained from the experiences of the participants.
This project aims to identify the main initiatives on children's participatory experiences and governance in the Valencian Community. The research will allow to know the tools and main child participatory methodologies used. With this, useful and innovative information will be offered to articulate an operational guide for capacity building in children's participatory experiences, especially participatory budgets with a focus on children.
The project proposes the establishment of a research program around the analysis of the complexities and definition of the Valencian identity and how it is developed and built in a remarkable way through artistic, aesthetic and design manifestations. In this way, the project addresses this analysis from the arts, design and visual culture, fundamental aspects on which identities are built and projected and which have a very important impact on their very definition.
The Complex Trajectories project, a project funded by the Erasmus + program, aims to understand the increasingly diverse and complex trajectories of students at university, and to provide support to the people who go through them. It not only aims to guarantee inclusive access to university programs, but also success in carrying out studies regardless of the socioeconomic situation of the people who study them. The project plans to define a system for monitoring the trajectories of students that allows the development of support policies both institutional and of the university system and to define indicators to avoid dropping out. In this sense, it is proposed that the center of the analysis of the trajectories is not the program (graduation rates, etc.), but the student body. Thus, a trajectory will be considered successful regardless of whether there have been changes in studies or in the study modality.
