Via the webquest http://www.uco.es/dptos/educacion/invadiv which contains the basic documentation necessary a degree in Psychology from the University of Córdoba, students can perform the required work practice in the areas of Research Methods and Special Education. Focusing on research and interventions in real world scenarios of diversity, students draw maps of relationships and design intervention plans to facilitate the creation of inclusive environments. Students perform this work, assisted by such features as advice of both a large group and small groups, apprenticeship contracts and a webquest to guide development of a practical proposal. Accompanying the teaching, this web-based resource is valued as a tool for facilitating students’ autonomy, optimizing working time and allowing effective completion of proposals. The dynamic of the work performed by students has been shown to be a key factor in the development of their educational skills.
