LECTURE-SESSIONS’ DIARY AND GROUP CONTRACT: TEACHING BUSINESS COMPUTER SCIENCE WITH NEW TOOLS

M.E. Garcia-Ruiz, F.J. Lena Acebo

Universidad de Cantabria (SPAIN)
In European Higher Education Area (EHEA), with its new requirements of individualized attention to students, follow-up of his progress, the university teacher must articulate new tools in his teaching that guarantee this follow-up.
This work illustrates the beginning of the implementation experience of EHEA methodologies in the Business Computer Science subject. This subject belongs to the EHEA pilot experience in UC Bachelor's degree in Economics. On one hand, it is a large practical component subject with needs computer’s classrooms support. On the other hand, this is an optional subject with a small number of students so that further facilitate the use of participatory methodologies.

We pay attention to the lecture-sessions’ diary: a new skill for teachers in order to control student’s development. The application of these new techniques to this subject has the following advantages.

Class sessions are based on group work projects. Every group must develop a project throughout several weeks. The evaluation and control system has several elements. Before the group creation, members receive a “group contract” that enumerates the commitments that pupils acquire with theirs colleagues by entering the group. This “contract” element has been widely valued by the students. They have been working in-group for several years, but never realize what this type of work requires.
