A study case was analyzed using a qualitative approach and with the technique of content analysis values such as honesty...

Ingeniería Física, un Título Profesional Universitario de la Física Aplicada para el Ámbito Productivo

This paper describes the major of Engineering Physics as one of the applied branches of the career Bachelor in Physical Sciences. This major was proposed by a group of professors of the Physics Department of the University of Concepción in Chile at the beginning of the year 2000. This new career was accepted by the university authorities as a formal profession in 2003. The main...

Las WebQuest, una Propuesta de Formación Docente para Propiciar el Desarrollo de Competencias en los Alumnos de Ingeniería

The use of Webquest, an innovative strategy in the teaching-learning process of undergraduate students, is presented and discussed. This paper also states that there is a need for teacher training in strategies Cased on Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) that promote skill development in engineering undergraduate students. A workshop about the theory of Webquest...
