Pro-sociality in Virtual Learning Environments, and Employability Academic Article


  • The purpose of the study is to analyze the relationship between pro-sociality and employability in learning virtual environments, proposing pro-sociality as a mechanism to create equitable employment. To this purpose, a theoretical study is conducted; it starts with university social responsibility and describes the characteristics of learning virtual environments and their pedagogical implications, pro-sociality and employability, along with the connections among these concepts that allows their coordinate use. The Roche’s definition of pro-sociality is proposed as a core concept, and the SPRING program as its application in the university context. As a result, the need for a university curriculum renewal is highlighted, in order to include pro-sociality and foster the creation of cooperative networks in virtual environments, along with an appropriate pedagogical model to encourage employability.
