Metodologías educativas para adultos profesionales, con el e-learning.

(Por Rafa Mompó)

coverEn 2014  defendimos una tesis doctoral en la UEM dedicada a metodologías educativas orientadas, sobre todo, a los adultos profesionales. El doctorando, estudiante de doctorado en la Escuela Politécnica, fue Miguel Doctor Yuste.

En la tesis se desarrollaron dos aplicaciones, que hemos puesto a disposición de quien desee utilizarlas de manera gratuita, como software libre. Ahora mismo se está utilizando en la Universidad de Alcalá.

En este artículo que fue publicado en el número de Agosto 2013 de Computer Applications in Engineering Education (revista indexada en el Journal of Citation Reports), en concreto, se presenta la primera herramienta. Es una metodología, desarrollada y aplicada por los cuatro autores del artículo en diversos contextos, que se basa en la construcción de conocimiento colaborativo mediante técnicas inspiradas en la metodología Delphi que utilizamos los consultores para organizar el conocimiento dentro de las organizaciones.

Ahora, los mismos autores, estamos elaborando otro artículo acerca de la otra herramienta, que permite automatizar la evaluación entre compañeros, como evaluación formativa de competencias técnicas, al mismo tiempo que se valoran las competencias transversales.

ABSTRACT

This article describes how to develop and implement a tool that enables engineering students to acquire soft-skills taking advantage of the purely technical engineering educational tasks. Delphi Learning Package (DLP) tool is based on a Delphi strategic consulting method. Generally, this method is used to obtain long-term forecasts from knowledge of groups of experts. Some adjustments have been made to Delphi method in order to apply it to learning and acquiring soft-skills in engineering. For instance, this tool can be used to guide students toward obtaining key parameters for a technical matter or to find the best solutions to an intricate multiple-solution problem. Thus, students will have to use not only knowledge learned on the subject of engineering, but also knowledge resulting from handling-related documentation. By tackling a multiple-solution problem, students develop different soft skills such as critical thinking, synthesis ability, inference, and argumentation. In order to judge the value of this tool, two pilot projects have been developed involving fourth year students with a major in Telecommunications Engineering. This tool can be used freely by contacting the authors of this article. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Comput Appl Eng Educ 21:E51–E61, 2013
