2021-2023: Generation of Contenidos for the Disordering of Digital Competition. Project approved by RD 641/2021

The aims of the project are: to promote actions for the acquisition of digital competences by the PDI; transfer of these to students; acquisition of cybersecurity strategies. In addition, actions that contribute to the acquisition of the objectives mentioned will be extended to the pass.
The proposal refers to the competences laid down in the European Framework Document for Digital Competition (DigComp) for teachers and the step by specifying it in the field of teaching (DigCompEdu) established at European level for citizenship. For teachers training is proposed for the A2 and B1 level of Docent Digital Competition (CDD).

All training and resources will be available and available in a specific site (Website, Sharepoint…) where all CDD development information is centralized. All workshops include evaluation activities where learnings achieved should be demonstrated.

2022:2023 Welfare Study in University Doctors

The emotional well-being and mental health of university doctorates have been the subject of increasing interest in recent years by universities, researchers and scientific journals. Doctors’ work is a source of scientific, technological and economic development. If they suffer emotional or mental health problems, which interfere with their personal and family well-being, and with their work, their research and the operation of the research team may suffer.

PhD students are embroiled in a dynamic characterised by a high workload, frequent evaluations, pressure to publish in competitive journals, active participation in the academic world, financial difficulties, a lack of permanent employment, and an uncertain future. Add to this the relationships with your thesis supervisors and the different roles that the doctoral student is expected to assume, for example, as a student, employee, parent or researcher.

Different universities have studied the well-being and mental health of their doctorates through surveys (University of California, Berkeley, 2014; University of California, San Diego, 2016; University of California, 2017; University of Missouri, 2017). The aim of this research is to analyse the welfare and mental health of UB PhD students. In addition, the influence that mentoring and the thesis monitoring process has on the performance and welfare of doctoral students will be analysed.

2022-24 FORSA::nbsp;Future-Oriented workplace Resilience Skills Assessment

The FORSA Project arises from growing calls to so-called “skills of future work”, such behaviors that, if used, will contribute to human flowering. While the most frequent approaches to future skills focus on hard skills, such as codewriting ability, our project contributes to the state of art of social science, advancing our understanding of a set of critical soft skills that support resilience.

These skills are said to be Skillsmicro because, although less apparent, they support a range of higher order behaviors. Microskiles include consciousness, communication and regulation of emotions, and have demonstrated obvious efficacy outside the workplace. However, they have not yet been operational in business studies. As this proposal will be discussed, our project will address these limitations by developing and validating an instrument for measuring micro-skills, while assessing the link between them and some performance-related indicators in the workplace.

In short, recent trends in the workplace are contributing to major social costs due to how workers and their organizations respond to volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. It highlights the need to report on ways of driving greater resistance. Although there are two significant research currents that contribute to addressing this need, both are critically limited. In the next section, we describe how our project addresses these limitations.

University and Learning Intergeneracional (PRUNAI) «Project of And+D+and of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities»

The increase of the longevity during the 21st century supposes a challenge for our societies and organisations, so much public like private. During the last years, has grown the worry, among politicians, practical and theoretic for the aging of the populace, (Fernández-Ballesteros, 2011; North & Fiske, 2012; Olshansky you at the., 2011). The demographic changes, beside the trend at the state politicians at delaying the age of retirement, are obliging the organisations at stake out his plans of careers and assure no only the coexistence, but, especially, the transfer of ken among the young workers and those with main experience and age. No at futile, one of the priorities of the European Union, at coherence with the plan proposed by the United Nations (2002) to achieve a society for all the ages, is to promote the collaborative learning among distinct generations (Canedo-García, García-Sánchez & Pacheco-Sanz, 2017; European Comission, 2012).

The research questions that treat to answer at these projects are:

  • Which is the relation that establishes among the varied generations of professorship that living together at the universities?
  • At which size the strategies of informal learning already utilised for the professorship, and associated as we know it at the organisational learning, contribute at the processes of learning intergenerational?
  • Which strategies of informal learning are more suitable at the processes of learning intergenerational?
  • The existence of a culture of organisational learning is related with the existence of learning intergenerational.
  • How they contribute the proposals of Management of the ken at the learning intergenerational?
  • Which kens acquires the professorship that takes part in processes of learning intergenerational?
  • Which organisational conditioning factors determines the development of learnings intergenerational?
  • Which elements characterise a model of learning intergenerational that it contributes at the organisational learning at the universities?

Learning as applied project (PBL) in a subject of porgraduate studies.

The project poses is to design the key points of “a strategic plan of development of the sport for Barcelona’s city council”. Identify the key points at which would have to be applied in a municipal politician of an important city council and at a populace that practices sport at a very main percentage that other cities. The intent of the project is to take advantage of the value of each guest, in particular, and sum it at pool. It Will aid, expect, at preparing each session with a motif that and that each reflection made at the sessions have an intent and value at a final context.

The subject wants to incorporate the kwoledge of professionals of the business management in the world of the sport. It gives value at the knowledge imparted at the classes, aid at thinking on concrete problems and value new strategies to solve them. Finally it gives a very complete ken of the social and business surroundings at which can develop his future activity as a directors. Visit the grup page.
