Training of Communication Skills in Social Education Students Through an Innovative Experience



This chapter presents an innovative experience carried out through a university extension course in the 2016-2017 academic year for Social Education students of the University of Huelva. The main objective has been to facilitate the acquisition of communication skills by the participating students (a total of 21 students). A participative, interactive and expository methodology has been followed between professors and students. The analysis of the data will be made thanks to the results obtained from the satisfaction surveys that the same university uses for this type of workshops that are offered in these calls. The results show a high students motivation in this type of initiatives as well as a very positive attitude on the part of participating professors.
