Educating with You (EducamosContigo)

COVID-19 needs to be addressed

EducamosContigo is an initiative promoted by a team of teachers and students of the Autonomous University of Madrid to respond to the critical situation that many families, students and teachers lived and live during and after the confinement of COVID-19.

It also responds to a formative need on the part of university students who observed how their environment changed and needed to develop skills that would allow them to adapt to the new reality and become active, critical and committed citizens.

Now the aim is to maintain the space created to carry out psycho-educational counseling and school supports since the situation remains critical, and on the other hand, the training research using the Learning Service that aims to transform the competencies of university students.
