MOTIVEM is a program developed by the University of Valencia, in collaboration with its University Enterprise Foundation ADEIT, under the direction of the Vice-Rectorate for Academic Planning, Teaching Staff and Sustainability, to support the effort of university faculty that stimulates the students’ creativity coordinating the development of team ideas to enhance their employability.
Professors and students, a creative tandem
To facilitate this work in the classroom MOTIVEM organized a School for professors. As a result, they coordinate teams of students who generate and develop their ideas and present them in a standardized format. In this way, students have a channel to develop and express their academic knowledge and also their transversal skills such as creativity, teamwork, negotiation and communication. This will help them in their academic work and in their professional future after graduation. And also they get 2 credits for their participation in this activity. The MOTIVEM team ideas encourage them to participate in this initiative. The whole process makes good our slogan “Professors and students, a creative tandem”.
The school and the competition of ideas offer complementary training activities to facilitate the action of professors and student teams.
The Vice-Principal for Academic Planning, Teaching Staff and Sustainability directs this initiative that facilitates the tasks of educational innovation to professors. The Academic Council MOTIVEM integrates professors who have participated in school and coordinated teams, and is representative of the different campuses of the University of Valencia. Their work helps to develop this initiative. The MOTIVEM Secretariat is in the University-Enterprise Foundation ADEIT, the institution that gives the necessary support to develop all these activities through a technical team.
