A SYSTEMIC MODEL FOR IMPROVING THE TEACHING-LEARNING PROCESS

J.L. Chorro Gascó

University of Valencia (SPAIN)
The object of this communication is to present a systemic model for the improving of the teaching-learning process through the design of better formative materials and advice to the students with unsatisfactory levels of learning. The aim of the model is to improve the quality of the learning in a sustainable way. The learning is characterized as the acquisition of skills and competences of interest, and the improvement relies in redefining the teaching process as self-correcting and adaptative. The way to get it consists in interrelating the elements of the model and in taking advantage of the information generated while the process is going on. Sustainability is obtained through the utilisation of Technologies of Information and Communication (ICTs). The main elements of the model are the materials, the teacher and the student, and are delivered to the student on a computerized platform. Content units are interactive and inform the teacher about the frequency of consults of the topics of theory. Exercises units inform the student of their answers, specific comments on errors and the general achievement level, and provide the teacher of the same information, and in addition offer general records of the activity of the students. The main function of this information for the student is to facilitate taking decisions about the process while it is going on. The main function for the teacher are to get information to: a) correct formative materials, b) help students whose learning is not satisfactory. This model is currently being tested in an introductory course on Statistics in the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Valencia (Spain).
