COMPETENCE BASED TEACHING AND EVALUATION IN THE GENERAL CHEMISTRY COURSE OF THE UNIVERSITY REY JUAN CARLOS

Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (SPAIN)
New methodologies in the teaching and evaluation of two key generic competences “teamwork” and “oral and written communication” in the General Chemistry course in the Material Engineering degree of the University Rey Juan Carlos have been elaborated.

To develop the competences we have used both chemistry laboratory and coursework assignments incorporating problem based learning exercises. The students working in groups have resolved the chemical problems posed and presented their results in a written report and an oral communication.

Key to the success of our project has been the continuous evaluation in the development of the competences by the students using different indicators in the assessment. This has allowed us to monitor the progress of the students in acquiring the competences in question.

This paper forms part of our research into new models of competence based teaching and evaluation within the Educational Innovation Project “Competence Learning and Evaluation methods in University Education” directed by Dr. Sanjiv Prashar. This project forms part of the fifth edition of the Innovation in Education Program of the University Rey Juan Carlos.
