Training Actions

It is advisable that you prepare yourself for distance learning study. To achieve this we would like that you be able to progressively train in the UNED methodology and develop the competencies needed for independent and self-regulated studying and learning.

UNED provides you with this training through various means and at various levels of detail, based on your needs:

  • Practical guides online and multimedia materials in "How To Study At a Distance?".

  • Virtual community of new students. As a new student, you will have access from the start to a virtual host community in which you will find all the new students of your faculty/school. Communities provide information and detailed guidance on UNED and its methodology, as well as suggestions to guide you through your first steps.

  • 0-Courses: It is possible that you have not studied formally in a while and need to refresh and level your previous knowledge in some areas. Thus, in the academic year 2010 – 2011, available online at the UNED Portal of Open Courses (OCW) will be the following courses with materials, practical activities and self-assessment tests: Physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics. These courses are particularly aimed at students of the Faculties of Sciences and the School of Industrial Engineering.

  • Training Course for Self-Regulated Learning: Available in the 2010-2011 academic year at the UNED OCW portal, this open and self-paced course allows you to learn more about UNED, the methodology of distance education and how to develop strategies to learn in an independent and self-regulated manner. This course, including tutoring and assessment, may also be taken formally as elective credit,. Find out more at the beginning of the school year.

  • Training workshops and courses for new students in the Associated Centers. Information on dates and venues for on-site Welcome Plan courses can be obtained at the website of each Associated Center.
