  1. Using active learning methodologies in physical chemistry in CLIL contexts

    Recatalá, David
    [EN] One of the main objectives of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) is to promote a change toward a student-centred education model. This fact has led to the implementation of novel methodologies based on active learning, aimed at engaging students’ interest. This implementation has been usually accompanied by significant changes in both the teaching and learning processes in European universities. Furthermore, teaching a subject through the medium of a foreign language has also been gaining attention over the past few years. More specifically, this approach commonly known as Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has been employed for the...

  2. Tutoring Social Sciences learning

    Prades Plaza, Sara
    [EN] This paper seeks to vindicate the role of mentoring in teaching, having proven to be a tremendous tool for effective communication and personal relationship with individual students. Exhibited an innovative educational experience conducted with students of degree in Early Childhood Education from the Universitat Jaume I, trying to promote the continuous character of the orientation process from the first years of training to adult life and employment, including the importance of enhancing the relation between the different educational levels.We also wanted to expose that much more than the task of transmitting information and knowledge, mentoring is essential in all...

  3. Take care of well-being: how facilitators and engagement predict performance of university students

    Martínez, Isabel M.; Peñalver, Jonathan; Meneghel, Isabella
    [EN] The interest in developing a high quality educational system requires constant research of the variables involved in the teaching-learning process. Among these variables, social and academic facilitators are important because there is empirical evidence about their positive relationship with engagement, commitment, self-efficacy, happiness and satisfaction in the academic context. Moreover, the psychological well-being of university students (i.e., engagement) showed to positively affect future academic success. In line, the aim of this study is twofold. First, the relevance of social and university academic facilitators was analyzed depending on the faculty of belonging. Second, the effect of social (e.g., Good relationship...

  4. Problem-based learning on cell biology and ecophysiology using integrated laboratory and computational activities

    Sousa, C.
    [EN] Since all the known biological systems require water for their basic biochemical processes, one can find several osmoregulation mechanisms on living organisms for adaptation to related environmental challenges. Osmosis is a cellular mechanism of water movement across membranes which is known to be present throughout the tree of life and occurs by either diffusion across the membrane bilayer or by a faster movement mediated by transmembrane channel proteins, called aquaporins. The expression of aquaporins is regulated at, the cellular level, by environment conditions such as hydric stress, therefore allowing the adaptation of organisms to increase salinity in soils, water...

  5. Modeling of impact dynamics and application in public security education

    Rodríguez-Millán, Marcos; Marco, Miguel; Loya, José Antonio; Moure, Fernando; Miguélez, María Henar
    [EN] This work presents a methodology for interfacing with the students in order to study impact problems. The results are derived from the Bachelor Thesis developed at the end of the fourth course in the Security Engineering Degree. The knowledge regarding security topic and the use of new analysis tools (commercial finite element solver) have proved to be extremely useful for future Guardia Civil officers.

  6. Inquiry learning for gender equity using History of Science in Life and Earth Sciences’ learning environments

    Sousa, C.
    [EN] The main objective of the present work is the selection and integration of objectives and methods of education for gender equity within the Life and Earth Sciences’ learning environments in the current portuguese frameworks of middle and high school. My proposal combines inquiry learning-teaching methods with the aim of promoting gender equity, mainly focusing in relevant 20th century women-scientists with a huge contribute to the History of Science.The hands-on and minds-on activities proposed for high scholl students of Life and Earth Sciences onstitute a learnig environment enriched in features of science by focusing on the work of two scientists:...

  7. Gender violence news in British and American press

    Bustinduy, Sara
    [EN] This study aims to prove which qualities, from the British and United States actual press, are more adequate for gender violence issues, comparing news on the same stories. It is evident the influence of mass media on public opinion and, therefore, the responsibility that written press has on gender violence messages, avoiding sensationalism. Psycholinguistic studies have established the relation language-thought, so language used in journalism is crucial.Following the belief that newspapers considered more liberal and independent will lead to a better treatment than traditional ones considered to be more reluctant to change, journals have been selected. Furthermore, different cultures...

  8. Development of generic and strategic skills through a wiki platform in industrial engineering programs

    Celorrio-Barragué, L.; Lopes-Ramalho, A.; Calvete Gaspar, M.R.
    [EN] This paper describes the collaborative learning task carried out in the framework of a Strength of Materials course in an undergraduate degree program in Industrial Engineering using a wiki platform as a support tool. Stages of the teaching/learning process are described. These are: organization of the wiki to host the work of student groups, creation of working groups and assignation of projects, delivery of guidance material and model, editing the project and publishing pages on the wiki, assessments performed using rubrics, and the results obtained. The wiki platform provides interesting statistics for evaluating cooperation between students and time variation...
