    • Abstract: Resumen: Este estudio tiene como finalidad la traducción, adaptación y validación de la escala Medida de Aceptación del Aprendizaje en Línea (MAAEL) en estudiantes universitarios. Se diseña un cuestionario con tres dimensiones. La dimensión “calidad del docente” se compone de 8 ítems sobre la valoración de la calidad del docente por parte del alumno durante su proceso de aprendizaje online. La muestra consistió en 155 estudiantes de la Universidad de Granada y la Universidad de Málaga (España). Los resultados muestran que la escala de MAAEL es una escala válida y fiable para medir la aceptación del aprendizaje en línea de los estudiantes. Esto queda soportado por los índices de bondad de ajuste obtenidos mediante dos modelos. En conclusión, se presenta aquí una herramienta validad y confiable en español que considera los cambios recientes en procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje y que mide la aceptación del alumnado al aprendizaje en línea.Abstract: The primary aim of this study is to translate, adapt, and validate the E-learning Acceptance Measure (EIAM) scale for university students. A questionnaire is designed with three dimensions. The dimension “professor’s quality” is composed of eight items in which students assess their professor’s performance during online learning. The sample consists of 155 students from the University of Granada and the University of Málaga (Spain). The results show that the EAIM scale is a valid and reliable scale to measure students’ acceptance of online learning. This is supported by the goodness of fit indices obtained by using two models. In conclusion, a valid and reliable scale is presented here that meets recent changes in teaching and learning processes while addressing the need of having a tool in Spanish that measures students’ acceptance of online learning.
       
  • Relationship between innovation management and student satisfaction with
           their well-being at university

    • Abstract: Resumen: El presente estudio buscó analizar la relación entre la gestión de la innovación y la satisfacción estudiantil en el área de bienestar universitario de una institución de educación superior en Barranquilla (Colombia). El estudio siguió un diseño de variables latentes. Para la recolección de la información se emplearon dos escalas tipo Likert aplicadas a una muestra de 406 participantes. Los resultados obtenidos indicaron que la gestión de la innovación estaba compuesta por dos dimensiones: estructura de los procesos y gestión de los procesos. Asimismo, la satisfacción estudiantil estaba conformada por tres factores: confianza y seguridad, elementos tangibles y motivación para participar. Se corroboró la relación entre las variables de estudio a partir de las dimensiones propuestas. Estos hallazgos permiten concluir que la gestión de la innovación en el bienestar universitario genera una mayor satisfacción para los estudiantes universitarios.Abstract: The present study sought to analyze the relationship between innovation management and student satisfaction with their well-being at a higher education institution from Barranquilla (Colombia). The study followed a latent variable design. Two Likert-type scales were used to collect information. Boh were applied to a sample of 406 participants. The results showed that innovation management was composed of two dimensions: process structure and process management. Likewise, student satisfaction was composed of three factors: trust and security, tangible elements, and motivation to participate. The relationship between the study variables was corroborated based on the proposed dimensions. These findings allow concluding that applying innovation management into the well-being of university students improves student satisfaction.
       
  • New approaches to Lawson’s test: an analysis from Piagetian theories
           and neuroscience

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este estudio explora los niveles de razonamiento de alumnas y alumnos de primer año de educación superior. Para medir el razonamiento y detectar la etapa de desarrollo del pensamiento, se aplica la prueba de Lawson a 2131 estudiantes de dos universidades de Chile y de una universidad en Perú. Los resultados muestran que la mayoría de los estudiantes medidos de la Universidad de Piura y de la Universidad de la Serena presentan un nivel de pensamiento entre el desarrollo de transición temprana y pensamiento concreto, y la mayoría de los estudiantes de la Universidad Viña del Mar presentan pensamiento concreto. Siendo el mejor desempeño en el ítem de conservación de masa. También se observa una diferencia consistente entre hombres y mujeres en la conservación de volumen e identificación y control de variables. En conclusión, se evidencia una asociación entre neurociencia y los niveles de razonamiento planteados por Piaget, por lo que se recomienda su uso, principalmente en primer año.Abstract: The present study seeks to explore the levels of reasoning among first year higher education students. To measure reasoning and detect the stage of thought development, the Lawson’s test is applied to 2131 first-year university students from two universities in Chile and from one university in Peru. The results show that most students at both the Piura University and the La Serena University present a level of thinking that is located between early transition development and concrete thinking, while the majority of students at Viña del Mar University displayed concrete thinking. The best performance is observed in the item of mass conservation. There is also a consistent difference between men and women on ​​volume conservation and identification and on control of variables. In conclusion, there is evidence of a link between neuroscience and the reasoning levels stated by Piaget, hence their application is recommended, but mainly for first year higher education.
       
  • Learning analytics for pedagogical decision making in higher education

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este estudio busca conocer las expectativas docentes acerca del uso de analíticas de aprendizaje (AA) en la educación superior y generar información acerca de las características que debiera poseer una herramienta de reportabilidad de AA. Se realizan tres sesiones utilizando como base el formulario de levantamiento de expectativas docentes de LALA (Learning Analytics Latin America Project), con 17 profesores de primer año en carreras STEM (química, biología, física y matemáticas). Además, se evalúa la percepción de 39 docentes de primer año sobre la utilidad, facilidad e importancia del uso de AA. Los resultados muestran una positiva evaluación sobre la interacción de los estudiantes con las aulas virtuales. En la dimensión utilidad, el 79.5% de los docentes indica que la AA les permite tomar decisiones sobre los recursos y materiales de su asignatura. Se concluye que los docentes poseen expectativas positivas acerca del uso de AA para la educación superior.Abstract: The present study aims to assess professors’ expectations on the use of learning analytics (LA) to improve teaching at university and it also aims to gather information from professors' opinions on the characteristics of a LA reporting tool. Three sessions, based on the LALA’s (Learning Analytics Latin America Project) template teacher expectation form, are conducted to assess 17 professors teaching first-year STEM degrees (chemistry, biology, physics, and math). In addition, 39 professors teaching first-year courses are surveyed on their perceptions of the usefulness, ease, and importance of using LA. The results show a positive assessment on the interaction between students and online classrooms. For the usability dimension, 79.5% of the professors indicate that LA allows them to make decisions on their courses’ resources and materials. It is concluded that professors have positive expectations about the use of LA in higher education.
       
  • Prosocial skills and university students: between transformative
           educational policy and teaching based on social responsibility

    • Abstract: Resumen: La presente investigación tiene como propósito describir las actitudes que constituyen las habilidades prosociales desde la perspectiva de la responsabilidad social en estudiantes universitarios a través de sus características sociodemográficas. Se aplica un instrumento a una muestra no probabilística de 382 participantes y se realiza un análisis factorial exploratorio. Se propone un instrumento para estudiantes chilenos y se examinan las diferencias estadísticamente significativas según las características sociodemográficas de los educandos. Los resultados muestran que los estudiantes presentan un elevado desarrollo de actitudes vinculadas con habilidades prosociales. Además, sólo se encuentran diferencias en relación al sexo y años de permanencia en la casa de estudios superiores. Es preciso que futuras investigaciones consideren la perspectiva cultural y, al mismo tiempo, las implicancias que poseen las características del sujeto de investigación. Se concluye que las universidades deben aplicar políticas educativas que permitan una docencia transformadora, la cual instale iniciativas empáticas, solidarias, altruistas y socialmente responsables.Abstract: The purpose of this research study is to describe the attitudes that constitute prosocial skills from the perspective of social responsibility in university students by assessing their sociodemographic characteristics. An instrument is applied to a non-probabilistic sample of 382 participants and an exploratory factorial analysis is conducted. An instrument for Chilean students is proposed and statistically significant differences are examined according to their sociodemographic characteristics. The results show that students have high development of attitudes linked to prosocial skills. In addition, the only differences found are in relation to gender and years of study in higher education. Future research should assess cultural background while examining the implications of the research subject’s characteristics. In conclusion, universities must apply educational policies to enhance a transformative teaching that implements empathic, supportive, altruistic, and socially responsible initiatives.
       
  • Women's voices in engineering: academic experiences, obstacles, and
           facilitators of career tenure

    • Abstract: Resumen: El objetivo de investigación fue explorar las experiencias académicas que favorecen u obstaculizan la permanencia y progresión académica de las mujeres en carreras de ingeniería. Mediante un estudio cualitativo, de tipo exploratorio-descriptivo, realizado en 3 universidades, en el que participaron 103 actores de la comunidad académica, se recogió información a través de entrevistas y grupos de discusión, para identificar núcleos temáticos relevantes. Los hallazgos muestran que entre los obstáculos que deben superar las mujeres están los estereotipos de género dentro y fuera del aula; mientras que, en los facilitadores para la progresión académica, están los referentes femeninos y el apoyo entre pares. En conclusión, existen obstáculos, provenientes de la interacción académica con pares y profesorado, que pueden limitar la permanencia de las mujeres en sus carreras, lo cual denota la necesidad de implementar mecanismos institucionales que les ayuden a superar estas barreras.Abstract: The main objective of this research study was to explore the academic experiences that favor or hinder women’s permanence and academic progression in engineering careers. Data is gathered by applying a qualitative and exploratory-descriptive methodology. The study was conducted at 3 universities and 103 individuals from the academic community were surveyed through interviews and discussion groups to identify relevant thematic nuclei. The results showed that one of the obstacles that women must overcome was gender stereotype inside and outside the classroom. The facilitators for academic progression included female references and peer support. It is concluded that obstacles such as academic interaction with peers and faculty may limit women’s permanence in their careers, which highlights the importance of implementing institutional mechanisms to help women overcome barriers.
       
  • Association between spoken and written communication, sleep quality, and
           levels of drowsiness in engineering students

    • Abstract: Resumen: El presente estudio busca identificar la asociación entre la autopercepción de la calidad de sueño y el nivel de somnolencia con la competencia comunicacional oral y escrita de estudiantes de ingeniería de 6 carreras. La calidad del sueño es una de las condiciones psicofísicas relevantes para un adecuado desarrollo de la formación profesional en educación superior, abriendo diversas interrogantes respecto de su injerencia en la adquisición de habilidades profesionales en los modelos educativos basados en competencias. Se utiliza un diseño descriptivo-correlacional con 153 estudiantes provenientes de una universidad estatal chilena. Los resultados muestran que no existen correlaciones entre la calidad de sueño y la comunicación oral y escrita, pero se observan diferencias significativas para estas variables al discriminar por sexo, carrera y comunicación escrita. Se concluye que no existe un efecto mediador entre la calidad del sueño y la somnolencia en la habilidad comunicativa oral o escrita de los estudiantes de ingeniería.Abstract: The present study aims to examine the link between self-perception on sleep quality and drowsiness level and the oral and written communicational competence of engineering students from six different degree programs. Sleep quality is an important psychophysical condition for an adequate development of higher education formative processes. This raises questions regarding its role on the acquisition of professional skills in competency-based educational models. A descriptive-correlational design is applied and 153 students from a Chilean state university are surveyed. The results show that there is no association between sleep quality and oral and written communication, but significant differences are observed between these variables when assessing by gender, degree program, and written communication. It is concluded that for engineering students there is no mediating effect between sleep quality, drowsiness, and the ability to communicate orally or in writing.

Twenty-six participants are divided into two groups: experimental and control. The results show that the experimental group displayed better levels of academic performance and motivation than the control. In conclusion, game-based learning is a strategic option that allows exploiting the affinity that students have for games and for the use of technologies while improving teaching processes.
       
  • Entrepreneurial mindset and intent among university students: the role of
           education and the institutional environment for entrepreneurship

    • Abstract: Resumen: El principal objetivo de este estudio es analizar el efecto de la educación en emprendimiento y el entorno institucional sobre la mentalidad e intención por emprender en estudiantes universitarios. Para ello, se aplica una encuesta en una muestra de 221 estudiantes del área de economía y administración de una institución en una región del centro-sur de Chile. Se utiliza un modelo de mínimos cuadrados parciales (PLS-SEM) para procesar los datos y probar las hipótesis planteadas. Los resultados muestran que existen efectos directos de la educación y mentalidad emprendedora sobre la intención por emprender. También, se evidencia la existencia de efectos indirectos de la educación y el contexto institucional mediados por la mentalidad por emprender del estudiantado. Se concluye que es importante incorporar estrategias institucionales para favorecer la educación y mentalidad emprendedora en el entorno institucional, dado que impacta positivamente la intención emprendedora de los estudiantes.Abstract: The main objective of this study is to analyze the effect of entrepreneurship education and institutional environment on the entrepreneurial mindset and intent of university students. For this purpose, a survey is applied to a sample of 221 economics and administration students enrolled at an institution located in the central-southern region of Chile. A partial least squares model (PLS-SEM) is applied to process the data and test the hypotheses. The results show that that there are direct effects of education and entrepreneurial mindset on entrepreneurial intent. There are also indirect effects of education and institutional context that are mediated by the entrepreneurial mindset of students. It is concluded that it is important to incorporate institutional strategies to favor entrepreneurial education and mentality in institutional environments since they have a positive impact on the entrepreneurial intent of students.
       
  • Covariational reasoning of university students in an approach to the
           concept of definite integral through Riemann sums

    • Abstract: Resumen: Este trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar el cambio en las acciones mentales asociadas con el razonamiento covariacional de una pareja de estudiantes cuando trabajan en tareas para aproximarse al concepto de integral definida mediante sumas de Riemann. Para conocer sobre las acciones mentales, se utilizan las interacciones en GeoGebra, los reportes escritos y una entrevista semiestructurada aplicada a los estudiantes de una escuela de ingeniería en México. Los datos fueron analizados con el constructo teórico del razonamiento covariacional. Los resultados muestran una evolución en la forma en que coordinan los cambios simultáneos entre las variables involucradas en las tareas, desde el nivel de sin coordinación hasta la covariación continua a trozos. Se concluye que las preguntas para proponer conjeturas sobre el uso de rectángulos en procesos de aproximación al área de una región y su justificación, o inferir resultados sobre situaciones hipotéticas, visibilizan comportamientos asociados con niveles superiores de razonamiento covariacional.Abstract: This study aims to analyze changes in mental actions associated with the covariational reasoning of one pair of students when working on tasks to approach the concept of definite integral through Riemann sums. Mental actions are gathered from student interactions in GeoGebra, from their written reports, and from a semi-structured interview applied to one pair of students from an engineering school in Mexico. Data are analyzed with the theoretical construct of covariational reasoning. The results show an evolution in the way students coordinate simultaneous changes between the variables involved in tasks, from the no coordination level to the chunky continuous covariation level. It is concluded that questions to propose conjectures on the use of rectangles in approximation processes to the area of ​​a region, including their justification, and the process of inferring behaviors from hypothetical situations, reveal behaviors associated with higher levels of covariational reasoning.
