Mariano Gacto: “We are in a difficult situation, but at the same time it is full of new opportunities”

Dr. Mariano Gacto, director of the Degree in Physiotherapy at the Salt Campus and of the Degree in International Physiotherapy at the Bellvitge Campus, explains how teaching at EUSES is being carried out from a distance and virtually because of the health alarm of Covid-19. Graduated in Physiotherapy from the University of Murcia, Dr. Mariano Gacto is also a Master in Physiotherapy and Scientific Evidence from the International University of Catalonia; and University Specialist in Hand Reeducation from the Claude Bernard University of Lyon. He carried out Doctoral Research in Quality Management in Health Services for the University of Murcia and is part of a working group of the World Health Organization (WHO) as an external consultant in the field of rehabilitation and disability.

How are the online classes working?

The experience is being very positive. Both teachers and students have adapted very quickly to this great change from face-to-face teaching to the online teaching model.

What are the teachers’ feelings?

Teachers have responded and are responding in a very professional way. And with an extraordinary adaptation to new requirements, such as the use of telematic and audiovisual resources.

And what about the students?

Without a doubt they have had an immediate and optimal response.

How has your day-to-day life as a grade level principal changed?

As far as the management of the degrees is concerned, it remains more or less the same, with the particularity of distance and the tools we now use to communicate. It is true that we have to be aware that we are in a difficult situation, but at the same time it is also full of opportunities to develop new teaching methodologies and also a new pedagogical model.

What advice would you currently give to the students of the degree?

I would tell the students to continue working with autonomy, with will and with academic adherence because in all contexts, work, sacrifice and effort are the values that will lead any student to a good academic outcome.
