In this text we have incorporated the 76 papers accepted for communication in the Symposium, contributions that account for research and projects carried out in recent years.
The communications included in this work correspond to those accepted by the reviewers after a selective double-blind process, which are accompanied by the reports made in each of the working groups. The present book of is structured in four blocks: the first three refer to the axes in which the selected works have been structured, and which correspond to “Narrative methodologies such as participatory excellence”; “Participatory Methodologies in Educational Contexts”; “Other methodological perspectives”. And the fourth chapter deals with the aforementioned rapporteurships.
