  1. Valuation of the training received in university regarding the utility for work by Catalan graduates

    Fachelli, S.; Montolio, D.
    [EN] This article examines the factors that influence graduate valuations of the education/training they received at university in terms of its utility or applicability in the workplace. Drawing on the 2014 survey conducted by the Agency for the Quality of the Catalan University System, among students that graduated in 2010, we test three hypotheses. The first states that graduate valuation of the training received at university in terms of its utility for the workplace is higher among those who are currently employed in high quality jobs; the second that this valuation is higher among graduates employed in higher occupational categories;...

  2. Postural and dynamic analysis of the human body: The relevance of the functional modulator factors in the methodological design

    Puig-Diví, Albert; Prats-Puig, Anna
    [EN] Functional studies analyze the interaction between the human body and its environment studying both, the posture and the movement. It is well known that at the Universities where health science and sports studies are taught there is a need to raise academic activities involving functional studies.The main objective is to make awareness of the factors that can modulate a certain function in the human body and must be well known for university students to perform a good research projects and career. To do this, we present a detailed list of intrinsic and extrinsic functional modulator factors (FMF) of the...

  3. Positive Institutions and their relationship with transformational leadership, empathy and team performance

    Solares Menegazzo, Jessica; Cruz-Ortiz, Valeria; Ortega-Maldonado, Alberto; Salanova, Marisa
    [EN] The current study tests the relationship between transformational leadership, empathy and excellent team performance, based on the HEalthy & Resilient Organizations (HERO) Model (Salanova, Llorens, Cifre & Martínez, 2012) in positive institutions, the third pillar of positive psychology (Seligman & Csikszentmihalyi, 2000). The study of empathy and its role in companies is important because it is not yet widely known the benefits that can provide to any institution. The study attempt to show a full mediating role of empathy in this relationship. The sample consist on  69 work teams, from 7 Small -and Medium- sized Enterprises (SMEs) including 4...

  4. Online review courses as preparation for first term remedial exams

    Domínguez-Reyes, Ricardo; Meléndez, Juan; Hernández-Pérez, Aarón
    [EN] At Universidad Carlos III de Madrid we have developed a review course (R-Course) with a SPOC structure intended for students who failed the first term regular exams. The purpose of the course is to help students prepare for the remedial exams at the same time they study the second term courses. The R-Course is implemented in an Open-EDX platform that holds digital documents, both theory and solved exercise videos, platform integrated exercises, and forums. The content of the course is divided in videos of less than 10 minutes in length, allowing students to include the R-Course in any schedule...

  5. Digital Signage: An Experience of Innovation in Higher Education

    Roger-Monzó, Vanessa; Guijarro-García, María; Martí-Sánchez, Myriam
    [EN] This project on teaching innovation was developed in ESIC Business & Marketing School Valencia and is based on the educational opportunities provided by Digital Signage. This paper describes the different phases undertaken to implement a flexible teaching method that counted on the participation of 43 third-year undergraduate students of Communication and Public Relations during two consecutive academic years (2013-2015). The objectives of this project are to promote educational innovation through the creation of a work structure led by teachers and to encourage students´ independent learning in the process of constructing knowledge through the development of the most appropriate visual...

  6. Diagnosis about Integration process of youth foreign Catalan

    Sabariego Puig, Marta; Palou Julián, Berta; Luna González, Esther
    [EN] This paper presents the results of a diagnostic study on the real integration process of young migrants in Catalonia. The study was carried out using a descriptive survey of 3,830 young Catalans from varying cultural backgrounds aged between 14 and 18, with the aim of identifying the key factors influencing the integration of Catalan migrant youth. Also, in order to analyze these key elements in greater depth as factors easing and/or obstructing integration, four discussion groups were held with the same young people. Results reveal achievements and challenges for further study, useful for the design of social and educational...

  7. Determinants of Entrepreneurial Intention among University Students: Case of Albania

    Garo, E.; Kume, V.; Basho, S.
    [EN] In Albania, during the last decades entrepreneurship has been in focus. It is commonly agreed that developing entrepreneurship in the long term would be translated into sustainable economic development. Albanian economy, being an economy in transition greatly and urgently needs to invest into increasing the number of entrepreneurs in the country. Entrepreneurial intention is considered to be really important. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to observe the determinants of entrepreneurial intention in Albania. The target is university students. Many programs that foster entrepreneurship such as incubator centers, business plan competitions along with new educational practices have been...

  8. An interdisciplinary complex problem as a starting point for learning: Impact of the PBL method in second-year Environmental engineering students

    Saez de Camara, E.; Lopez-Urionabarrenechea, A.; Azpiazu, M. N.; Ruiz de Arbulo, P.; Insunza, G.
    [EN] Three courses of the second year degree in Environmental Engineering (Geology and Pedology, Ecology and Economics and Business Administration) have been remodeled using the Problem-Based Learning methodology. The proposed problem is a real-life and integrative problem related to their specialization which must be solved in these three courses at the same time. The results reveal that during this experience students were considerably more active, cooperative and involved, and the success rate doubled that of similar engineering courses of the Faculty. Regarding students’ opinion, it should be emphasized that they perceive that this method is functional and encouraging. A high...

  9. Acquisition of transversal skills through PBL: a study of the perceptions of the students and teachers in materials science courses in engineering

    Moliner, M. Lidón; Guraya, Teresa; Lopez-Crespo, Pablo; Royo, Marta; Gamez-Perez, José; Segarra, Mercè; Cabedo, Luis
    [EN] The main goal of this work is describing the experience in using Project Based Learning (PBL) methodology in Materials Science courses in several Engineering degrees. The courses were taught simultaneously in four different Spanish universities. In addition, the impact of this proposal on the acquisition of transversal skills through the perceptions of students and teachers is assessed. In order to do so, voices of over 54 students and 5 lecturers involved in the work have been gathered and studied descriptively. Discussion groups and self-reports have been collected and subsequently analysed. The analysis of the data collected by these two...

  10. A supervised method for unbiased peer-to-peer evaluation. An experience with engineering students

    Simois, Francisco J.
    [EN] Continuous evaluation is an assessment method which has some appealing advantages but also implies an increase of the teacher’s efforts and it may be unfeasible if the class is large.Of course, new technologies may be used to implement automatized evaluations, but it is usually quite difficult to carry them out when a complex task like an engineering problem is to be judged.An interesting alternative is a peer-to-peer evaluation, that is, the students themselves review their works. Nevertheless, one drawback is that it is likely that the grades are overrated. Although this is a well-known problem, not much effort is...
