[EN] This paper deals with the implementation of a system of peer assessment of
collaborative work as a tool to measure students level of awareness of the
work done in groups. Then, their collaborative work perception is compared
with the academic results obtained by the group.
The teacher provides a rubric for assessing the ability of collaborative group
work. This group reflection on the methods and skills developed by working
as a unit encourages critical analysis of individuals.
The application of this methodology intends to provide information to the
group, and teachers , to better understand the value that the group makes
about its capabilities and compare those with...

[EN] Language learning requires an interaction between the students and the
teacher in the classroom that allows for the actual practice of the
communicative aspects of the language.
Given the small number of language courses and credits offered in the
degrees’ programs and the UPV requirements of a B2 level of language
competence for the award of Bachelor’s degrees, the introduction of flipteaching
in the English courses helps to significantly optimize teaching
resources and to better use the time available in the classroom (Bergmann,
Obermyer y Willie 2011, Stone 2012).
In this paper we present a proposal for the implementation of flip-teaching in
the course of English for Business Management...

[EN] The School of Design Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia
has begun to teach this course 2014-2015 the new Master in Aeronautical
Engineering. In the first year the compulsory subject 'Orbital and
Atmospheric Flight Mechanics. Guidance Laws' appears with 4.5 ECTS
(Theory 2.25, Practice 1.25 and Problems with computer 1.00).
Developing the curriculum of this course has been the first step in the work of
the teachers involved, who have divided the competences of the subject in two
blocks. On the one hand the competences of ‘Orbital and Atmospheric Flight
Mechanics’ and on the other those of ‘Guidance Laws’.
It has also sought to promote a type...

[EN] Decision making is ubiquitous in human affairs. Every day we make personal
decisions; managers, entrepreneurs, executives, leaders, etc., base their work
on a proper decision making. Often, some of the process elements are
intangible, i.e. not objectively quantifiable. This project introduces students
to the technique of multi-attribute decision making called AHP, whose
foundation is rooted in matrix algebra. Through a suitable simulation
scenario, each team of students must complete a decision-making process in
the presence of intangibles. Concurrently, the algebraic fundamentals that
make valid and consistent the process are clarified. This is a
multidisciplinary project, which, incidentally, allows the evaluation of
several transverse UPV-competencies.
This project has been designed for...

evaluation related to effective communication: individual qualitative evaluation
of oral presentation of problems, and collective quantitative evaluation
of written documents presented by other teams. They have guidelines on how
to conduct the assessment. The obtained results have been compared with the
evaluation performed by the teachers. In regard to qualitative evaluation, the
order of results of oral presentations, performed by teachers and peer review,

concrete engineering and construction management students in relation to
the learning outcomes for effective communication crossdisciplinar
competence. An anonymous questionnaire using a Likert scale of 12
questions was used. Principal components analysis was used to identify
underlying latent variables that explain the pattern of correlations. We have
identified three principal components: skills related to oral communication,
competence related to the organization and clarity of ideas and expertise
related to the use of English. It has also proposed a multiple regression
model to explain the variable "communicate clearly and effectively in an oral

[EN] This paper describes several applets based on Easy Java Simulations. These
applets are available as “learning objects” in the UPV RiuNet database.
They are freely available so they can be used for any subject of physics
from the UPV or any other institution. Through these learning objects,
students can perform several lab sessions in the subject of Physics, or can
perform simulations for displaying different physical phenomena. A special
feature to note is that the applets are designed so that students can make
measurements on the screen, similar to how they would in the physics
laboratory of the subject. This allows to set out several lab sessions...
