Humanizing from university: An example based on the training itinerary for catholic religion teachers

Research output: Indexed journal article Articlepeer-review

Abstract

Although the presence of the discourse about the teleology of education has remarkably decreased, we can never forget that this has to describe its horizon. At present, the concept "humanization" is usually included in the final goals, but not always under the same concept. The statement "the university has to humanize" is explicitly or implicitly present in many university rationales, but this statement is not enough if it does not imply a precise description of its meaning and, furthermore, if we do not have indicators that offer us an approximation to results achieved. One of the training itineraries in Blanquerna-Ramon Llull University has allowed us to develop a list of humanization indicators that, rather than intending to be a standard model, aims at suggesting the need and appropriateness of building a certain taxonomy linked to the university rationale and to the work carried out from the areas of knowledge. Only in this way will we be able to assess the level of achievement of great goals, in this case humanization. All in all, in this itinerary and other possible ones, we should highlight the experience of applied ethics in a training field and in their professional impact that affect the life of trainees and university undergraduates.
