Modelo de transferencia de conocimiento para vincular instituciones de educación superior en ciencias sociales y humanidades con entidades sociales

PDF

Resumen

En la búsqueda de demostrar la utilidad práctica de las ciencias sociales y humanidades (CSH) en diversos contextos, el presente trabajo plantea como objetivo definir las características de un modelo de transferencia de conocimiento (TC) en instituciones de educación superior de las CSH en relación con entidades sociales. Para ello, se realizó una investigación de tipo cualitativo, a través de entrevistas semiestructuradas y grupos focales con expertos, docentes y representantes de entidades sociales, de cuyo análisis de datos fue posible derivar una serie de rasgos sobre formas de ejecución de los procesos de TC, así como la caracterización de un modelo objetivo que propicie adecuadamente la TC para las CSH en relación con otras entidades sociales. Entre los elementos derivados de este modelo se encuentra el reconocimiento de los siguientes elementos: agente iniciador/receptor, identificación de proyectos, vinculación, definición e identificación de necesidades, incentivos y barreras, plan de actividades, evaluación y buenas prácticas.

Diagnóstico de habilidades básicas de alfabetización informacional en universitarios de Letras Españolas

PDF

Resumen

Esta investigación implementó las pautas sobre competencias en investigación literaria (ACRL, 2007) para diseñar y aplicar un cuestionario diagnóstico sobre habilidades básicas de alfabetización informacional (Alfin) para conocer el desarrollo de tales habilidades en 42 estudiantes de la licenciatura en Letras Españolas de la Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua. El cuestionario de 40 ítems incluyó preguntas sobre la autopercepción del estudiante sobre sus habilidades informacionales y una prueba para evaluar sus habilidades básicas de Alfin. El promedio de respuestas correctas obtenido fue entre regular y bajo; además se compararon los resultados de autopercepción antes y después de la prueba Alfin, comprobándose que tal prueba afectó negativamente la autopercepción. A pesar de los bajos resultados, la mitad de los estudiantes no mostró interés por mejorar sus habilidades Alfin. Finalmente, discutimos argumentos sobre la influencia positiva de Alfin en el rendimiento, así como las implicaciones de la integración o no de Alfin a los estudios de licenciatura en Letras Españolas.

Subordinated Complacency, Ferocious Rivalry, or Equitable Work: On the Independence and Separation of State Powers

subordinated

 

Now in #OpenAccess, 2017’s ‘On the Independence and Separation of State Powers’, written with Basilio A. Martínez-Villa. Original English version: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3466595


Abstract: This article presents three deviations from the Separation of Powers Principle (trias politica) as they have taken place in Mexico and Venezuela: the increment in the amount of state powers, the subordination of powers to the agenda of a unique political tendency with the subsequent nullification of the power that is acting in an independent way, and the creation of constitutional autonomous institutes or entities. It suggests that governments can become complex self-referential systems that avoid public consultation of political decisions and the free formation of citizens’ informed and educated opinions that are much needed for a country’s development in a democracy.

Scientific production in Mexican universities: Rates and expectations toward competitiveness

Untitled

Together with Javier Tarango, we analyze issues of scientific production in Mexican universities.


Abstract: This article analyzes emerging issues that Mexican universities are experiencing with scientific production processes, their impact on assessment indicators that determine their level of competitiveness, and the identification of assessment dimensions and criteria related to the activities of professors and researchers. Examples of previous research on universities’ competitiveness are offered to provide suggestions for recognizing the need for legitimized models that allow assessing scientific production in Mexican universities.

Latin American science is meant to be open access: Initiatives and current challenges

Together with Dominique Babini, we summarize the rise of open access in the region and its main initiatives.


Abstract: Latin American open access (OA) initiatives were built upon the foundations laid by the regional cooperative information networks, databases and indexes that started to be developed from the 1970s. OA had an early start in the region in the 1990s, because it preceded the first worldwide OA declaration. This article summarizes the reasons behind the emergence of OA in the region, offers details and data about the most relevant initiatives and discusses some of the current challenges to keep advancing in this arena.

From the ashes

From the ashes

523 years ago, one of the major cultural crimes in the history of humanity happened: slaughter, imposition of ideologies and dogmas, apart from a systematic cultural annihilation; all this meant the alteration of the independent development and of the future of the autochthonous Latin American cultures. Current Latin American civilization emerged from this event: From the ashes…


Abstract: About 523 years ago, the territory now known as the Americas was ‘discovered’. This event detonated the conquest and colonization of this ‘new world’, processes that altered the historical development of the indigenous civilizations. This work examines one of the most disheartening consequences of this clash of civilizations: the almost total destruction of the indigenous people’s cultural heritage. This annihilation was driven by the implementation of colonial domination, which implied the establishment of a new socio-political order and systematic and forced religious conversion, which included the destruction of the pictographic codices that were seen as ‘works of the devil’.
