The project (March-December 2018) will analyze the educational practices in some courses delivered at UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia), Spain, using the"Community of Inquiry" (CoI) framework. The aim is to set recommendations based on the analysis.

We will translate, adapt and validate the CoI survey in a Spanish version.

The project was approved in the II Call for Educational Innovation Projects for Teaching Innovation Groups at UNED (resolution published in March 12, 2018).
