THE PROMOTION AND ASSESSMENT OF GENERIC SKILLS FROM INTERDISCIPLINARY TEACHING TEAMS

The paper explains a teaching project financed by the University of Barcelona (UB). It focuses on a generic skill of the UB, which is defined as "the learning capability and responsibility”. It follows a multidisciplinary approach including teachers of Mathematics, World Economic Structure and Economic History. The common elements have been to share the same students of the first and second course of Economics at the Faculty of Economics and Business. The project has been developed in three stages. The first one has been done the first semester of the course 2012/13, being applied to the first year students on the subjects of Mathematics and Economic History. The second phase is being to be done the second semester only on the Economic History subject. A third stage is going to be done next course 2013/14 to the second year students on the subject of World Economy. Each different teaching team has developed specific materials and assessment tools for each one the subjects included in the project. The project emphasizes two teaching dimensions: the development of teaching materials to promote the acquisition of generic skills from an interdisciplinary point of view, and the design of specific tools to assess such skills. The first results of the first phase of the project show clear deficiencies in the skill of learning and responsibility regarding to the first year students.
