Course objectiveThis course is mainly aimed at providing, together with a knowledge of international migration, the knowledge and tools necessary for the practical management of policies related to immigration and asylum and whose management is essential for intervention with immigrants and refugees .Target audiencesThe course is aimed at people who are interested in working or working in the field of migration and refuge in public administrations or private entities. It is especially aimed at people with degrees in a branch of social sciences, law, economics, psychology, journalism and communication, without ruling out other areas of knowledge. People without a higher degree can take it, although preference will be given to those who have some experience in the social field. However, those who subsequently wish to have the diploma taken computed to access the Master's degree must be in possession of a bachelor's degree or equivalent.MethodologyThe course is mainly online. It consists of 250 hours distributed in seven content modules and one of practices. The modules will be taught at the approximate rate of one per month depending on their content. Classes will be taught online through the virtual campus for which there will be materials such as presentations, guides and recommended readings as well as tutorials. For each module, passing tests will have to be carried out, which will also be carried out on-line. If the relative situation of the coronavirus allows it, it is planned to organize four face-to-face sessions in Madrid and on Saturday, the dates of which will be indicated throughout the course. In the case of being carried out, attendance will not be mandatory in any case. These sessions will be recorded so that students who have not attended can follow them later on the virtual campus.
Class material will be available in the virtual classroom, including presentations made by teachers in class. It is essential that the participants prepare the teaching materials in advance, individually prepare notes with their evaluations of their content, and actively participate in the debates that are promoted in the virtual forum.About streaming classesThe streaming classes will take place two afternoons a week starting at 5:00 p.m. (CEST time) and will last for two hours. In some cases it is possible that changes in the set time may occur due to force majeure reasons. In any case, timely information will be given of the changes that occur in the initial planning.
The day and time of the sessions will be specified in the teaching guides for each module. For those participants who cannot connect at the moment, the sessions will be recorded so that they can view them when they have time to do so. Whenever possible, we will try to make the video available on the virtual campus before the next class.
In the final part of the streaming, students will have the possibility to ask the teachers of each module live in order to clarify or expand those aspects they consider appropriate.Evaluation systemThe evaluation system of each module is specified in the didactic guides and includes the percentages of qualification of each activity proposed by the teacher, as well as the evaluation criteria. To pass the program it is a requirement to pass the modules and to have carried out all the evaluable activities that have been included in the academic calendar. Participants who, for justified reasons, have had to postpone the development of some of the activities will have a recovery time before closing.Student support servicesThe planning includes a week of familiarization of the students, in which an introductory module is developed, in which information about the evaluation system and the use of the campus tools is made available. virtual. Participants have a general guide to the program, where they can consult the academic calendar and the detailed description of the training and assessment activities that are launched.Personalized follow-up of the participantsThe tutors monitor the performance of the participants daily, verifying their degree of participation in the training activities and the results they obtain in the module evaluations. They carry out a regular update of the virtual campus with news of interest to the students, and send reminders of the tasks that they must carry out, according to the academic calendar. The monitoring done by the tutors is key to guide the participants in time management and keep them motivated during the development of the program.
The monitoring is done taking into account the profile and needs of each student. The tools of the virtual campus are used to obtain information on the access of the participants to the contents of the program, and their involvement in discussion or debate activities. Additionally, personalized contacts are made by email and by phone calls to find out the causes of low student participation, if this occurs. During face-to-face sessions, students can hold meetings with tutors to establish the most appropriate communication channels throughout the program.Consultations and tutorialsThe students have a series of tools that allow them to make daily queries about the content of the modules and transmit, to those responsible for the program, any incident that may arise in its development. The tutors keep a record of the consultations made by the participants and are committed to responding within a period not exceeding 72 hours.
The tutorials are carried out by activating virtual forums or arranging phone calls between the participants and the coordinators of the modules. In each case, the most appropriate modality will be defined based on the needs of the modules and the number of participants enrolled in the program.
Consultations with teachers should preferably be done through the virtual campus, avoiding the use of email. Inquiries can be addressed through forums or direct messages.Virtual campusThe Virtual Campus is an online teaching and interaction platform that is offered to teaching staff and training participants. This support facilitates the rapprochement between teachers and students and allows access to academic content. It is an educational support for face-to-face sessions and a basic tool for the development of virtual sessions.
Students must access the virtual Campus through the FOM Community page www.comunidadfom.com.
