Abstract

© WMSCI 2018 - 22nd World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics, Proceedings. All rights reserved. We evaluated an educational intervention using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to develop competences in the areas of 1. Pedagogy, 2. Communication, 3. Management and 4. Research, in 65 professors of the Faculty of Medicine of a Public University. Design: Quasi-experimental study according to the Research-Action methodology. Two intervention phases were carried out: Mixed training for teachers for 4 months and then the creation of functional virtual classrooms as a final product. The teaching competences, the quality of the virtual classrooms and the perception of the teachers about the limitations found were evaluated. It was achieved that 72% and 78% of teachers became competent at an integrative level in Pedagogy and Communication. 85% and 68% were proficient in an explorer level in Management and Research. Even so, only 25% of teachers created and implemented functional virtual classrooms. Important limitations regarding technological conditions and university policies were explored. It is a need of the majority that said work be recognized to integrate them into their teaching activity.
