ON THE IMPACT OF RESEARCH ACTIVITIES ON TEACHING TELECOMMUNICATIONS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

J. Mora, B. Ortega

Universidad Polit├ęcnica de Valencia (SPAIN)
Currently, the university lecturer training is considered as a continuous process of constant professional development. University teaching is a complex task where the lecturer requires pedagogical strategies as well as a good technical knowledge in order to perform a successful didactic process.
The professional features of the university lecturers have evolved based on the transformation of society, values and forms of organization, development of teaching competence and progress of scientific knowledge. The university lecturer, as a professional, is meant to be a thoughtful and critical person, competent in the field of self-discipline and a qualified person to carry out teaching and research, as well as management activities.
There are many universities internationally that have developed training programmes for the improvement of university teaching in order to answer to problems, expectations and needs that arise in the university. In general, initial training of university lecturers has at least two phases. A first stage corresponds to an initial process where the lecturer learns to teach. One of the objectives of the initial pedagogical training of university lecturers is to learn to select the materials and contents, organise them, and transfer them to the students in a successful teaching-learning process. The second stage corresponds to induction research programme conducted in the departments. As part of the training process and progress in science and technology, the lecturers must complete a research work under a doctoral Thesis framework in order to obtain the PhD degree. Traditionally, both tasks are always presented as parallel formative stages in the global race for university teaching staff.
In this work, we present a study on the relationship between teaching and research tasks in the process of training university lecturers and further evolution of their professional careers. The study presented here aims to evaluate the reconciliation of the teaching and research roles in the professional career of the lecturer to enrich the quality of university teaching by means of several parameters such as motivation, success or development of new student abilities. The study is applied to the field of telecommunications, where interaction between teaching and research is needed to provide a high quality university formation.
