Evaluación y cambio en la cultura universitaria

Los cambios son difíciles de producir si no existen los recursos financieros y tecnológicos, pero se adhieren obstáculos a ellos, cuando no existe la voluntad o cuando el pesimismo se adelanta a la acción, o cuando se producen cambios que responden más al capricho o la intuición que a una valoración objetiva de logros y […]

Cognitive And Affective Variables That Should Rule Education

Education must focus on the quality of teaching and learning. The quality of the results, as a concept borrowed from the business sector which is much less complex and interactive than the education sector, is difficult to define with precision, since it combines values, attitudes and achievements which form a part of the most complex […]

Humanism and Educational Technology Must Coexist

What has come to be know as educational technology sprang from behaviorist psychology and philosophical positivism and gradually came to include the theories of systems and of communication. However, the different incidence of each of the contributions in each place, and the passing of time, have shown all too clearly the shortcomings of the atomistic […]

Science and art, as dimensions of creative thought, are universal in nature and develop to the full in freedom. Science stimulates the cognitive processes of the individual involved and art the emotions, but the cognitive and emotional elements coexist in both.

A Reflection on Aesthetic Thinking

We do not want for art to remain a forbidden garden for a fortunate few, because we know that the absence of art in our lives dims our creative and cognitive abilities, and silences the voice of our souls.
