Innovating in times of pandemic

If the coronavirus crisis has taught us anything, it is that we must learn to coexist with complexity and uncertainty. The pandemic has put us to the test and the University has shown that it can adapt in record time.

From “emergency remote teaching” to “adjusted face-to-face teaching", Deusto has not stopped innovating. Reinvention has been the key. We have achieved this thanks to an education model that has in its DNA constant innovation in teaching and assessment methods, as well as learning based on values and competences. This is our working philosophy every day.

STUDENT AND SUPPORT
The academic staff use a variety of teaching methods and place students at the centre of their learning. A number of student support systems have been put in place.

INTERDISCIPLINARY WORK
Technology professionals, teaching experts and programme managers have worked together to adapt to the new remote reality.

ONGOING SUPPORT
A range of support materials have been created for academic staff, as well as a website with adaptations, tutorials and resources.

A hybrid university

The university has become hybrid, but blended learning is not just about studying some days at home and others in the classroom.
The options are manifold. At Deusto, we have opted for the adjusted face-to-face model, a complex mode that guarantees a higher quality learning for students and a closer lecturer-student relationship, while at the same time enhancing students’ maturity, prominence and autonomy. It is, therefore, a model aligned with the Deusto Education Model, the basis for the success of teaching during Covid-19.

What are the classes and the 2020-2021 academic year like?

FACE-TO-FACE AND REMOTE TEACHING
Groups are divided into  two sub-groups. Most of the teaching is held in face-to-face and remote mode

HOW SHOULD I DO THIS?
3 hours of class with a lecturer each week, 2 face-to-face with your subgroup and 1 hour remotely on Mondays

INDIVIDUAL WORK
Classes are completed with students’ personal work during the rest of the week so that they can develop the competences required in each subject

WHAT ABOUT EXAMS?
Continuous assessment: students will receive progressive feedback. For subjects that require a final assessment, this will be face-to-facel.

THE TEAM OF TUTORS...
To help, support and offer hints to solve possible needs or difficulties



CLASSROOMS AND LABORATORIES
The maximum capacity of the classrooms must respect the minimum safety distance using a face mask, and will always be less than 50% of the classroom capacity.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT
At docencia2021.deusto.es you will find guidance and advice, as well as information on technological resources and other support resources

Always with you, on campus or remotely
COVID-19 Grants

We are aware of the serious impact generated by COVID-19 and, therefore, a new grants fund of more than 1,000,000 euros was created to support the most affected students.

This special fund is independent of the regular fund of more than 2,500,000 euros in grants that the University awards to 1,300 students anually.

In addition, other exceptional measures were adopted in the form of loans on honour and payment flexibility, which are helping families in financial difficulties.

Investments in digital transformation

The transformation of the teaching model requires investing both in the teaching and research support areas and in the technological, management and communication infrastructure.

During the 2019/20 academic year, investments amounting to 1,300,000 euros were undertaken in these areas. These investments will be maintained and increased to 1,900,000 euros in the 2020/21 academic year.

The main actions are securitisation, a communications firewall and online teaching resources.
