Secondary teachers’ training has become one of the key elements in educational
policies in Spain. For more than a decade, university and secondary education teachers
have claimed the need to design specific and quality based training for professionals
that wanted to become teachers in this specific level, giving special emphasis on the
didactics and the psychological aspects involved in the process of teaching and
learning with adolescents. In order to cope with this demand, a Master of Secondary
School Teacher Training was designed at a national level with specific criteria.
This master, as in other European countries, pretends to contribute to the
development of the teaching competencies that are necessary to succeed in teaching
at this complex educational level. It is addressed to different teaching disciplines, with
a general psychopedagogical approach and specific teaching competencies for each
domain (i.e. Mathematics, English, etc.)

Specifically, at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) the master’s programme
wants to contribute to the development of particular aspects such as: (a) Collaboration
between novice teachers from different disciplines simulating the real context at
schools. UOC’s programme, as coordinator of the pychopedagogical training modules
addressed to students of different disciplines, has designed specific tasks that teach
and demand students to collaborate between them as interdisciplinary teams. (b) ICT
integration into the teaching and learning processes.
