Sánchez, Carles; Ramos, Oriol; Márquez, Patricia; Marti, Enric; Rocarias, Jaume; Gil, Debora – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2015
The first years in engineering degree courses are usually made of large groups with a low teacher-student ratio. Overcrowding in classrooms hinders continuous assessment much needed to promote independent learning. Therefore, there is a need to apply some kind of automatic evaluation to facilitate the correction of exercises outside the classroom.…

Thies, Anna-Lena; Weissenstein, Anne; Haulsen, Ivo; Marschall, Bernhard; Friederichs, Hendrik – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2014
Simulation as a tool for medical education has gained considerable importance in the past years. Various studies have shown that the mastering of basic skills happens best if taught in a realistic and workplace-based context. It is necessary that simulation itself takes place in the realistic background of a genuine clinical or in an accordingly…

Yin, Qingli – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2013
Taking into account the characteristics of college experimental teaching, through investigaton and analysis, evaluation indices and an Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) model of experimental teaching quality have been established following the analytical hierarchy process method, and the evaluation indices have been given reasonable weights. An…

González Geraldo, José Luis; Trevitt, Chris; Carter, Susan – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2011
The European Higher Education Area (EHEA) has been established, at least in structure, remapping Higher Education as we know it. This scenario offers a new framework in which the role of universities can be rethought, independently of the field of the new degrees and post graduate studies. As part of this reconceptualisation, the roles of teachers…

Oliver-Hoyo, Maria T. – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2011
The cAcL[subscript 2] approach (concept Advancement through chemistry Lab-Lecture) incorporates three major educational methodologies into one: a student-centered approach, the full integration of lecture and laboratory formats, and hands-on activity based-instruction. This format has been tested for cognitive and attitudinal gains in students and…
