  3. Examining pedagogical knowledge content on mitosis in a University context

    González, N.; Rossi, A.
    [EN] Mitosis is a process of cell division occurring in eukaryotic organisms. Students from many countries experience difficulties learning this science topic, and its teaching demands substantial effort. Effective teachers develop a wide range of knowledge types to successfully transform science matter for students; this transformation of knowledge has been conceptualized as pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). In this study the PCK of two University teachers on mitosis was explored. As informed by the instruments employed (Content Representation and Pedagogical (CoRe), and Professional experiences Repertoires, analytical rubric (PaP-eR), and semi-structured interviews) both participants’ PCK on mitosis can be characterized as incomplete,...

  4. District heating and cogeneration in the EU-28: Current situation, potential and proposed energy strategy for its generalisation

    Rosales-Asensio, Enrique; Borge-Diez, David
    Yearly, EU-28 conventional thermal generating plants reject a greater amount of energy than what ultimately is utilised by residential and commercial loads for heating and hot water. If this waste heat were to be used through district heating networks, given a previous energy valorisation, there would be a noticeable decrease in imported fossil fuels for heating. As a consequence, benefits in the form of an energy efficiency increase, an energy security improvement, and a minimisation of emitted greenhouse gases would occur. Given that it is not expected for heat demand to decrease significantly in the medium term, district heating networks show the greatest potential for the development of cogeneration....
