[EN] In a globalized and constantly changing world, education must be continuously updated. This requirement plays a major role in scientific and technological education, since technology may under goes significant changes in short periods of time. In such context, our students need educational opportunities that allow them to link scientific and technological aspects to many other subjects and situations which are closer to their personal interests and responsible actions. How to help our young people to discuss issues that need the consideration and integration of a variety of disciplines? How to encourage them to participate in a responsible way? In this...

[EN] Lecturing has been prevailing in higher education. This teaching and learning model hinders the understanding of fundamental concepts in practical courses. The cooperative learning allows an improvement in the student’s achievements, attitudes and persistence. The main goal of this work is to implement the cooperative learning in the teaching of the design of industrial facilities. This methodology aims to solve part of the problems of recently graduate students when they undertake engineering projects lacking knowledge. Finally, the results of an end-of-course satisfaction survey, conducted to assess this experience, are also presented.

[EN] The emergence of new technologies in education area is changing the way of organizing the educational processes. Teachers are not unrelated to these changes and must employ new strategies to adapt their teaching methods to the new circumstances. One of these adaptations is framed in the virtual learning, where the learning management systems have been revealed as a very effective means within the learning process. In this paper we try to provide teachers in engineering schools how to use in an appropriate way the different technological tools that are present in a virtual platform. Thus, in the experimental framework...

[EN] This paper is based on the study of different elements at the University of Granada’s Faculty of Translation and Interpreting and seeks to elaborate a prototype for a multilingual and accessible audio guide (audio description, SDHH and Spanish sign language interpretation). We defend a new methodology, one that focuses on teaching the translation process from previous museum-based learning experiences in the translation classroom using QR codes. Our main goal is to innovate translation-related teaching based on the new approaches acquired through learning workshop perspectives. In this sense, we will offer an ideal framework in developing the new concept of...

[EN] This work has had as objective to analyze the skills acquired through internships in business companies by gender that have made the students of the Faculty of Economics and Business at the University Pompeu Fabra. The internship is a basic item in order to obtain a hard connection between the University and social-economic world where University and Enterprises develop their activity. In this study we want to know about two aspects. The first one, we want to know the profit that is obtained from the Student as a consequence of internship and mentoring. Also, we want to study about...

[EN] During the last two decades, in our societies we have sought quality education. One way to achieve this goal is to promote educational leadership. The field of educational leadership is complex: administrative, instructional, school supervision, teacher supervision. Our focus is on instructional leadership and teacher leadership. There’s an extensive literature on this topic and we have selected recent publications that present a discussion of theoretical and practical implications. Our theoretical study is from an educative perspective. We highlight a theme: the emotional competences of academic leaders and teachers and their influence on effective teaching. Researchers insist that teachers’ emotions...
[EN] The episode of the History of Science (HOS) on the theory of continental drift proposed by Alfred Wegener has been considered an excellent example for teaching students aspects of Nature of Science (NOS) and the relation of Science with social and tecnological contexts. We implemented a NOS and HOS-enriched Problem-Based Learning environment at the middle (year 7 of the Portuguese National Curriculum) and secondary level (year 10) for teaching the origins of biodiversity and of continents and oceans (mobilism). The goal of providing detailed implementation practices is to adress the lack of how to in Problem-based learning (PBL) implementation in...

[EN] With the intention of providing a starting point to reflect on both aspects in which the subject Teaching Innovation and Introduction to Educational Research in Arts of the master’s degree in Teaching in Secondary School breaks up and merges, we created a situation, understood as a learning environment, that seeks to show us how we react before a situation different from the expected one. For this reason, we played with the idea of something in construction, something that is still wrapped up in white paper: tables badly placed, chairs on tables, papers covering chairs and tables, or parts of...

[EN] It is an acknowledged fact that the appearance of new genres in cyberspace has shifted the main focus of instruction strategies nowadays. Learners of any field are challenged by the acquisition of a new type of literacy, digital literacy –how to read and write, or how to interact, in and through the Internet. In this line, websites often show expressions like "home", "visit", "down-load", "link", etc. which are used in a new sense that did not exist before the digital era. Such expressions constitute the manifestation of mental models that have been transferred from traditional conceptual domains onto the...

[EN] The main objective of the present work is to analyze the results of the utilization and evaluation of the LORETO Record System (LRS), providing improvement areas in the teaching-learning process and technology, in second year nursing students. A descriptive, prospective, cross sectional study using inferential statics has been carried out on all electronic records reported by 55 nursing students during clinical internships (April 1º-June 26º, 2013). Electronic record average rated 7.22 points (s=0.6; CV=0.083), with differences based on the clinical practice units (p<0,05). Three items assessed did not exceed the quality threshold set at 0.7 (p<0.05). Record Rate exceeds...
