THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE LATWORK PROJECT AT THE SAN SEBASTIÁN UNIVERSITY ADVANCES.
The year 2020 will be remembered not only for the health crisis that is being experienced worldwide, but also because the question of informality has made more sense to offer responses tailored to the needs of people, institutions and the knowledge that is required to advance in better social conditions for workers.
The implementation of the project within the San Sebastián University has been related to various actions to link the question of informality, the formalization processes, the dimensions of informality in new professionals, the methodologies to relate informality with employability and the training of future professionals in strategies for their observation and study.
In this sense, during the month of September the training process for undergraduate students on issues related to employability and a particular focus on informality, its dimensions and its impact in Latin America began. An unprecedented enrollment was achieved with more than 600 students. The course started on September 12, has been directed by the executing unit of the project,
the Directorate of Employability and Graduates in conjunction with the Bachelor's
Degree in English from the Patagonia headquarters and with the accompaniment of the Directorate of International Relations.
They stand out, particularly the synchronous classes in which the students interact and that are presented at the end of each module. The course is expected to conclude in December with a video in which students must present and publicize a corresponding product with the topics addressed.
Likewise, in October the seminar on Formalization Theories and Strategies was held, which linked the academics: Marcelo Manzano, researcher at the University of Campinas UNICAMP; Roberto Gormaz, Researcher at the University of Viña del Mar UVM; and Francisco Aravena, San Sebastián University Researcher. The seminar was held on October 7-8 and had the participation of students, graduates, external public and representatives of government institutions, who learned about the different strategies that accompany the formalization processes in Latin America. Finally, concrete and specific research actions are highlighted where both the Employability Directorate in conjunction with the University Faculties have collaborated to install the Informality category in the discussion on formalization, entrepreneurship, employability and self-employment. Currently, a relevant information is being collected from two processes, one led by researcher Carlos Barría Roman from the Faculty of Psychology and the other by the team of the Employability and Graduates Directorate headed by Fernanda Orrego Muller Mag., And Ana María Calderón Jaramillo, PhD.
