La orientación en los programas universitarios para mayores: Evaluación de la función del profesorado - Morales Muñoz, Esther
Educational processes for seniors are becoming more relevant due to, among other aspects, the increasing number of people that are part of this segment of the population and the higher quality of life that people enjoy in the aging process. In this context, Universities for Seniors or University Programs for Seniors (UPS) have been growing in interest over the last few decades. The education imparted in these programs is determined by the characteristics of the senior-adult alumni. It is, in essence, a process carried out under the principles of continuous education and lifelong learning, where educational guidance plays a very...

Competitividad, competencias y fin del ciclo fordista - Brunet Icart, Ignasi; Böcker Zavaro, Rafael
This article shows how competence-based management has cast doubt on the value
of academic qualifications to predict labour development. This phenomenon is due
to the emergence of new management criteria which are built upon the structural and
organisational transformations that capitalism has experienced last decades. Those
transformations are meant to be a fundamental turn from tasks management to
results and competencies management.
The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing: The Matthew Effect in Online Education - Saleh, Amany; Sanders, Heath
In our globally and technologically connected world, many universities raced to offer online, college degrees to populations who otherwise would not have access to higher education. They promised high quality, rigorous, flexible, accessible, and affordable programs. Colleges and universities pledged to support these students to ensure theirsuccess within an online environment. However, Canchola (2011) argued that online students rarely receive the support they were promised. Sandeen and Barr (2006) argued many online programs increase students’ dissatisfaction with higher education and increase their drop-out rate. As a result, such programs rather than help students achieve their goals; they set them back...
The Digital Divide in Classroom Technology Use: A Comparison of Three Schools - Rafalow, Matthew H.
While concerns about the “digital divide,” or access to technology, remain relevant for many schools, we do not yet fully know how often-expensive education technologies are employed across school contexts. In particular, few studies exist that evaluate how teacher beliefs about student social class and race-ethnicity, as well as institutional perceptions of the value of new technologies, inform everyday teacher practices with such technologies. Classroom observation and interviews were conducted with 5 teachers across three elementary schools that vary by race and class. Results indicated that teachers at middle/upper class schools encouraged dynamic uses of interactive whiteboards, while in the...
