Internship and Master’s thesis with BRIDGES

During this semester, Francina Planas, a student from the Master’s Degree in Psychopedagogy at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC) carried out her internship as part of the BRIDGES project.

In a pandemic context that has conditioned the teaching format, her intervention has consisted in the virtualisation of some materials that are part of BRIDGED Toolkit. This action aims to increase the possibilities of access and use of these resources and, therefore, to diversify the ways of interacting with them and increase their impact. In addition, this intervention has served to disseminate the project and connect it with future educational psychologists and teaching staff of the Master’s degree. In the future, Francina aims to virtualise some more materials and publish them in BRIDGES Virtual Lab.

Apart from this, Francina has also developed her Master’s thesis within the BRIDGES project’s framework, by making a comparison between intercultural and decolonial education proposals. The Master’s Thesis title is “Educació intercultural i educació decolonial: punts de trobada i discrepàncies. Comparativa a partir d’una revisió bibliogràfica entre les perspectives educatives interculturals i les perspectives educatives decolonials” (Intercultural Education and decolonial education: Meeting points and discrepancies. A comparison based on a bibliographic review between intercultural educational perspectives and decolonial educational perspectives).
