Conference title: 
Why are the results of educational innovations often disappointing?
Curriculum vitae: 

Emilio Sánchez is a professor of Educational Psychology at the University of Salamanca (Faculty of Psychology). He has dedicated his academic life to the study of the following topics: a) designing and testing intervention programs aimed to promote reading comprehension as well as the rehabilitation of students with difficulties in learning-to-read abilities b) the analysis of the teaching practice related to and/or directed toward the reading and the comprehension of texts, c) the analysis of the activity of counselors in their advisory work, as well as the analysis of the trainers in the training processes, d) the impact of rhetorical signals on understanding processes, especially those aimed at facilitating the comprehension, and e) the study of the acquisition processes of reading skills.

This list of topics is better understood as elements of a single and global problem: the challenge of alphabetizing the whole population by differentiating and relating three different levels of analysis:

  1. The needs, possibilities, and difficulties that students face during the literacy process (a, d y e)
  2. The needs, possibilities, and difficulties that the teachers face to effectively address the students needs (b),
  3. The needs, possibilities, and difficulties that the trainers and advisors face when helping the teachers to help the students (c).

This three-fold approach seeks to reach a full understanding of the educational challenge to get the entire population acquiring high-level skills such as learning from texts or managing multiple sources of information.

The global measures derived from this three-fold perspective can consider simultaneously the possibilities and difficulties of all the agents involved in this process, and therefore avoid unbalanced and unrealistic long-term educational proposals. The result of these three lines of research has led to half a dozen books and a large number of research papers.
