PRELIMINARY RESULTS OF THE APPLICATION OF COLLABORATIVE SELF-ASSESSMENT E-LEARNING INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES IN HEALTH SCIENCES

In recent years, the introduction of technology in the educational context has significantly changed not only how teaching/learning but also in the context of the evaluation. In Health Sciences area, scientific knowledge has always been closely related with the technical performance and, in our day, is an inherent part of the so called techno-scientific development. In education, the technological reality, with its real impact on professors and students' daily lives can be used as a link between theory and practice to show the continuity and interaction between conceptual and practical tasks. Of the various possible activities to be performed within the teaching of science, many of which are not made with the desired intensity. As a result, students receive most contents through theoretical explanation by the professor and their knowledge is evaluated by solving numerical exercises. That is why the application of ICTs at university education, particularly in the evaluation process is an area to be developed specially in the field of Health Sciences.

The main objective of this work is the development of innovative strategies of evaluation using a webquest, as a tool, including collaborative assessment tasks (wiki, e-portfolio..), with the application to different materials and Degrees in Health Sciences. We report the preliminary results of a teaching innovation project entitled "Design and implementation of innovative strategies of collaborative evaluation and self-assessment e-learning in Health Sciences", in which proposed the use of some digital tools (WebQuest and e-portfolio) in the evaluation of subject framed within the area of Nutrition and Food Science, in different degrees adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and offered by the UCM. The WebQuest developed is a research-oriented activity in which all or most of the information used comes from Web resources. On this site there are structured and guided activities that provide students with well-defined tasks and resources. In this way, students do not waste hours searching for information; they can more easily appropriate, interpret and exploit the specific information that the teacher assigned. In the final state of total autonomy, students can suggest topics of interest to the teacher passing them choose what is most suitable for personal and group learning. We will perform two types of WebQuest depending on the topic and materia to be applied: short-term (One to three sessions: the objective is the acquisition and organization of knowledge (observation, analysis and synthesis); and long-term (between one week and one month): aims to extend and process knowledge (deduction, induction, classification, abstraction, etc..). The e-portfolios used, also allow a variety of tasks and activities that bring into play the knowledge, skills and attitudes of students in both individual and team work. We organize seminars of 25 students, within "virtual groups" of a maximum of 5 students per group. Each "virtual group" is assigned a topic to study developing an e-portfolio and / or a Wiki (depending on the course and the course in which this is given, according to the complexity involved each of these virtual tools) following the steps of the WebQuest proposed for each case study. The topic of work will be related to the subject matter of study. We are using these tools in the following UCM studies: Degree in Pharmacy, Nutrition and dietetics, and Food Science and Technology.
