I’m study phycology and obviously there are things that I would change of my career. For example, about the curriculum. I remember that a little time ago subjects like “Antipsychiatry” or “Critical Perspective of Gender” almost was eliminated and I think do that is a mistake because these subjects are very important for formation of future critics psychologists, that they will have a vision critical of the profession. Even I think these subjects must be mandatory subjects because are very critics and necessary for the work life and the same life I think. Both subjects give a different perspective of see this world, in where the different, the diversity, persons away from norm, the “crazies” are not sick or be bad. So i believe the future psychologists need a vision more inclusive and critical of this society.
Other important thing are teaching methods. I would change those old methods that even today continue being used for the most of teacher of this university. I would like that lessons wasn't always teacher speaking and students listening in silence. I remember a teacher that in his lessons always had fun dynamics in where all participated because was so fun. And obviously with those exercises we learned a lot things and reflexionated. I would also change some investigation work for some experiential work because I really think that we can learn and understand more a situation, a different realities if we live that.
And is impossible no mention the evaluations. I would change the standardized tests that not prove nothing about the learn of the students. A person with a score 7.0 not is more intelligent or learned more that a person with score 4.0. I think we need new evaluation methods which not imply necessarily a score.
To finish I have to say think are necessary many changes in this educational system. A change is needed!!
