Abstract:The completion of this project is intended to establish methodologies and evaluation systems of the different general competences, which allow implanting an effective and efficient routine and a correct learning by students. With these objectives in mind, we carried out the following tasks: to examine and put into practice working approaches; to select the general competences object of the rubrics; and to identify appropriate learning methodologies (including the evaluation system). The procedures for assessing competencies report on the processes and mechanisms involved in the learning verification, and should be a feedback mechanism that allows the teacher to check the goodness of the overall design of the learning process, from the initial identification of competences to the assesment of the final results. Overall, these activities seek to contribute to improving the teaching quality model of three subjects about the management and conservation of forest ecosystems and environment (i.e. Environmental impact assessment, Forest management and forest certification, and Hydrology and hydrological-woodland restoration).
