Discussion Board: Obama visits Spain
This activity is currently being used in the module SPPO 2650/1 "The Spanish regional Melting Pot: the same old History?" at the University of Leeds. This module is a Level 2 very popular option for all our BAs in Spanish. Students make their contributions via discussion boards in VLE Blackboard. The activity is aimed at facilitating students’ interaction and co-operation in the process of understanding the history of the Spanish State, the history of the different nationalist movements in Spain and the relationship between national identity, political allegiances and the interpretation of these sometimes conflicting “histories”. It also fosters transferable skills such as intercultural communication, analytical skills, critical skills, the ability to work as part of a group, negotiating skills, online communication skills, leadership and spirit of enquiry. The activity was first used in the module "Spain: Political Decentralisation and Integration into Europe" (SPPO 2370/1) in 2009 but has been updated since them. Last update 29/9/114. It received the University of Leeds Faculty of Arts Teaching Development Prize 2009/2010 and has attracted excellent student and employer feedback. It can be downloaded as a pdf document or as a word document.
