Gaspar Berbel Giménez - Aptabel consultant, professor and researcher at the EUMediterrani university, YouTuber, blogger - today shares an article that has been published in EDUCAR, 2021, vol. 57/1, p. 139-153
The research starts from an original idea and from the field work of Óscar Gutiérrez Aragón, Dr. Professor at the EUMediterrani, where we are department colleagues.
THE ITEM SHOWS A Excellent example of pedagogical or teaching innovation in a university setting. Where it manifests itself as a small methodological change based on a group dynamic on a real case - video about the Spanish soccer team that won the World Cup in 2010 (Robinson report: When we were champions, in Canal Plus Spain, 2010) -, in contrast With other groups (controls) where this methodological modification is not used, it can make the performance in a subsequent test on management functions in companies significantly higher in the group of groups that received the dynamics, in different universities.
I, as an analyst of such data, attest that, of course, there was no intentional manipulation or bias.
My conclusion, however, ends with two thoughts:
1) why, in many universities, alternative methodologies-practices-modalities are avoided, neither promoted nor stimulated, and
2) the teaching system is changing, it is necessary to flee from classical systems and roles that immobilize and relegate students to passive positions and totally dependent on the figure of the teacher -as if he were the only person responsible for the “learning” process.
