ACCOUNTING OF THE SETTLEMENTS WITH STUDENTS IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

The mission of universities and their public recognition as a provider of quality education has changed significantly over the centuries. Making a real quality of education in universities has made legislative basis. This stage requires a strong, accurate knowledge and their application by universities, students and executives factors ministry. In this context, correct information to all stakeholders and decision-makers with a set of standards and recommendations to really contribute to quality assurance becomes an immediate need. It is mandatory to take the constructive decisions in all academic structures designed to ensure and assess the quality and conservation values and experience to date of the institution empowered to ensure this fundamental parameter of education and its financing. The diversity of higher education pathways that facilitate insertion of the graduate labor market is a recognized value of the European Higher Education Area, but the understanding of how to implement / manage this diversity, in terms of socially recognized needs to be commonly accepted quality standards the content of education, still remains to be a concern for many academic communities collateral or an enigma.

The characterization of management processes in higher education institutions in Mozambique.

The characterization of management processes in higher education institutions in Mozambique.

The vast majority of HEIs in Mozambique, especially private institutions, do not have a full time teaching staff with the qualifications and in sufficient number to ensure the teaching, research and academic management functions and others desirable for the normal operation of these institutions. From this perspective, the Mozambican State has established a regulatory framework (Article 7 of the Licensing and Operating Regulations for Higher Education Institutions - Decree No. 48/2010 of 11 November) that seeks to ensure, according to the degree of demand or the type of higher education, qualified teachers to pursue the objectives set by the respective HEIs. This table establishes the minimum number of full-time teachers (1/3 for Universities and Academies - Class A, of which half must be PhDs and 1/4 for the remaining HEIs - Classes B, C, D and E, of which half must have at least a Master's degree) and also, in the same table, it is established that ten years after the opening of any HEI, 30% of its teachers must have a PhD or Master's degree although the proportion between them is not established. Despite these regulatory measures, the study carried out with the various actors seems to confirm the above assertion about the existing difficulties in the composition and qualification of teachers in most of the Mozambican HEIs.

INCORPORATING MARKET ORIENTATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

INCORPORATING MARKET ORIENTATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the main issues surrounding the concept of market orientation applied in the context of higher education. Considering the important changes taking place in this sector, a strong willingness of universities to adopt marketing concepts can be noticed. The paper seeks to provide a retrospect on this process, starting with the incorporation of marketing in higher education, and moving on to its implementation, which has come to be known as market orientation. Following a stream of the most relevant literature in the field, we present definitions of the main concepts, and integrate them in the education context, with the purpose of establishing the relevance and importance of market orientation for achieving a sustainable competitive advantage and higher institutional performance. The paper does not aim at providing an exhaustive literature review, but rather at presenting the main elements that define a market orientation, and at supporting its implementation, by outlining the significant benefits that could follow. While theoretical by nature, this research contributes to the body of literature in the field, through closely examining the conceptualization and operationalization of market orientation, and also providing the fundamental components that define the concept and help its implementation. Furthermore, the paper provides practitioners with a number of suggested research directions, which could potentially help improve educational institutions’ activity, while also contributing to a better understanding of the concept, and to building richer theories in the field of marketing education. Given that the marketing literature in Romania has mostly overlooked market orientation, both this paper, and all following research in this area will prove to be significant for education managers and researchers alike, promoting the importance and significance of relevant knowledge, and encouraging a wider acceptance of market orientation throughout the education sector.

Access to Higher Education in Portugal: an Analysis of the Impact of the Economic Crisis in the Patterns of Regional Distribution of Candidates

Access to Higher Education in Portugal: an Analysis of the Impact of the Economic Crisis in the Patterns of Regional Distribution of Candidates

To access these institutions, a student can do it through different ways. The first and more common one is through the National Access Contest, which is done annually and organized in three different phases, making it possible for a student to apply to his/her leading choices more than once. The special track for international students is another possibility, only applying to international students that do not belong to the European Union and that are holders of a recognized high school degree. This contest takes place once a year and it allows the student to apply to any private or public institute with the exception of military and police higher education institutes. There is also the Special Contest for students over 23 years old, allowing students over 23 to apply provided they are not holders of another college degree. Apart from these, there are several other ways to access, such as: Superior Professional Technicians (TeSP); Holders of Technological Specialization Diploma; Holders of Other University Degree and Special Contest for Access to Medicine by Graduates. Due to its representativeness (about 70% of the new students), the first one is the most common object of study and it is also our focus. Accordingly, a student can choose six pairs of programs/ institutions at the time of application, by order of preference, thus placed by the grade point average (average of the marks obtained during high school plus national examinations) (Portela et al., 2008; DGES, 2020).

QUALITY ASSESSMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION: ARE RUSSIAN UNIVERSITIES FOCUSED ON THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS?

QUALITY ASSESSMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION: ARE RUSSIAN UNIVERSITIES FOCUSED ON THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS?

Trying to find solution to integrate social and economic nature of education, a number of experts consider educational services to the category of "multisocial good" (Carnoy, 1993). However, regardless of the approach most of researchers take into account consumer model of students (Stiglitz, 1997). There are some classifications of consumer behavior on the market of education (McArthur, 2011). There is no doubt that student’ voice is the most valuable in the quality assurance and quality management systems in higher educational institutions, so systematic student surveys became common practice for universities in Russia as well as worldwide. However, there are many issues using feedback information in universities for continuous improvement, because of inadequate methods of analyzing, weak of quality standards, lack of resources or even resistance of staff (Motova, Pykkö, 2012).

Reflections on the health of faculty in institutions of higher education

Reflections on the health of faculty in institutions of higher education

The literature has shown in recent years that many factors are associated with accidents at work. Among the main factors are those related to inadequate working practices, availability of materials, personal factors, and the lack of adoption of preventive measures by workers and employers. The authors point out that investing in the promotion of health at the workplace motivates workers, reduces absenteeism, social problems, and dispute between the workers, and promotes improved efficiency and performance. This makes us think about reinforcing the need to invest in studies that use models of health promotion in the workplace.

EDUCATION CLIMATES: CONSTRUCTION OF A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK SUITABLE TO STUDY THE TRAINING OF PROFESSIONALS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

EDUCATION CLIMATES: CONSTRUCTION OF A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK SUITABLE TO STUDY THE TRAINING OF PROFESSIONALS IN HIGHER EDUCATION

Regardless of the educational area, vocational programmes in higher education are assembled to train professionals with dispositions for the effective articulation between horizontal and vertical knowledge (BOYD, 2013), for an effective performance in complex work environ- ments, for ethical pratice, for the reflective and autonomous practice, for the investigative attitude, and for lifelong learning. They should also pro- mote and subsidize professional socialization processes, investing in the production of knowledge, in particular by means of research, as well as creating and strengthening local and global institutional links. This com- plex set of articulated elements is a fundamental item to the constitution of identity of future professionals. Therefore, professional learning de- pends on an environment that goes beyond what the teacher can offer to students in a classroom (LOPES; PEREIRA, 2012).

HABILIDADES DE RACIOCÍNIO CRÍTICO DE ALUNOS DE CONTABILIDADE

HABILIDADES DE RACIOCÍNIO CRÍTICO DE ALUNOS DE CONTABILIDADE

The findings present in this study reinforce the idea that critical thinking among stu- dents of a particular field (e.g. accounting), bearing similar conditions of learning (e.g. work- ing students, attending evening courses, etc.) within the same social environment, and with comparable life experiences are supposed to have consistent levels of critical thinking and communications skills. So, further analysis on these particular parameters should be con- ducted to explore, in depth, the existence of such influences or relationships. Beyond tack- ling these research questions, it is important to stress via this study that the concern about critical thinking, as well as reading and writing skills, is still a relevant issue. The advance in business education demands depth-and-breath research in several areas, and this one has its own space.

Executive summary: centralized admission and the student-college match

Executive summary: centralized admission and the student-college match

This paper addresses this limitation by exploiting a unique and large-scale policy change in Brazil to study the eects of centralization on college admission. Prior to 2010, each higher education institution selected students based on its own admission exams. Students, in turn, were allowed to apply to as many institutions as they wanted, submitting specic degree choices in each application. A test-score based admission policy meant that institutions oered their seats to the top-scoring candidates. In 2010, the Ministry of Education created the SISU, a centralized clearinghouse that allocates students to federal and state public higher education institutions. 3 Using scores from a nationwide exam called ENEM, students

GENERIC QUALITY STANDARDS VS. SPECIFIC QUALITY STANDARDS: THE CASE OF HIGHER EDUCATION

GENERIC QUALITY STANDARDS VS. SPECIFIC QUALITY STANDARDS: THE CASE OF HIGHER EDUCATION

Abstract: Quality as a new requirement for the field of higher education leads institutions to seek to satisfy generic or specific quality standards imposed directly or indirectly by its customers. The aim of this study is to compare between ISO9001, as a generic quality standard, and the Code of Practice of the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA), as a specific quality standard. A correlation matrix is drawn and correlation rates are calculated to show similarities and differences between them. This paper shows, first, that ISO9001 and QAA Code of Practice are compatible. Second, implementing a quality management system in accordance with ISO9001 requirements can constitute an adequate framework for the application of the QAA Code of Practice requirements. Third, to make the ISO9001 requirements closer to a specific quality standard in the field of higher education, it is recommended to complete these standards by specific requirements to the field of higher education.

The present case study uses a qualitative exploratory approach to analyze the collaboration between managers and teachers from three Higher Education Institutions (HEI) - Private Institutions that adopt the Family Health Strategy (FHS) as their curricular training ground for their students, managers and professionals from the FHS teams in Juazeiro do Norte-CE. The theoretical framework that guided the research design and the subsequent analysis of the body of data was a typology of interprofessional collaboration. Data was collected during 2011 and 2012, using the following techniques: field diary, document review and 25 open interviews with managers and teachers of HEI, managers and health professionals of the Municipal Secretary for Health. The interprofessional collaboration between FHS professionals and teachers of the three HEI analyzed was found incipient, showing the need of the promotion of knowledge and practice in this field.

STUDY REGARDING STUDENTS- SATISFACTION WITH INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESS AS A DIMENSION OF ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION

STUDY REGARDING STUDENTS- SATISFACTION WITH INSTRUCTIONAL PROCESS AS A DIMENSION OF ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION

The competition in the current educational environment is intense due to the internationalisation of education and the impact of information technology and communications. Given the present context of global economy, the situation is even more dramatic in the case of the economic education. This competition profoundly affects one (but not the only one) essential components of a university mission: the learning process, the essence of the educational process, focused on knowledge transfer and creation of skills and competences usable in the labour market. The degree to which we can speak of a successful university can be determined through the overall satisfaction felt by its main category of public, namely the students, taking into consideration the content of the educational activities. This element along with the evaluation process and the quality of the human resources represent the main components of the instructional process and thus their evaluation is the first step to develop better educational programs.

Dealing with Hazing : are there different profiles of higher education students?

Dealing with Hazing : are there different profiles of higher education students?

students denoting a greater attachment to hazing, that variable does not play a distinguishing role at the UAC. The variable gender also displays significant differences in the global scale at the ESSP in the positive and negative relationship with hazing, with boys scoring higher, but it has no differentiating value at the UAC. Behavioural variables are the ones that showcase a more similar trend, with joined hazing activities in general coming in first followed by joined this year. That is, engagement in hazing practices, in general, and participation in these rituals during the current academic year are variables that distinguish students within each institution. The findings for the ESSP lead us to rethink the previous interpretation of students having fun with hazing, at least, in a general perspective. Considering that 3 rd year students and boys are the ones that reveal

Promotion of sustainability in higher education institutions: ISCTE-IUL

Promotion of sustainability in higher education institutions: ISCTE-IUL

Technological improvement is considered to be one of the main goals for the future of Portugal. In line with the economic restructuration and sustainable development, most of the Portuguese technological improvements are being developed in renewable energy and new means of transportation. In the first semester of 2017 renewable energies accounted for 49,2% of electricity production, representing an important role in the Portuguese electricity system. This sector is expected to continue growing by a annual rate of 2,6% until 2030, leading to a 4,300 million euros contribution to the GDP by the end of this period. At the end of 2015 there were 1924 megawatts of electric production awaiting green light, of which 91% was destined to solar energy, proving the big investment made in this type of energy production. In 2017 the Alentejo region was responsible for 35,7% of the solar production mainly due to its plains and many days of solar exposure. Following this data the group China Triumph International Engineering Co. (CTIEC) decided to invest in a construction of giant electric solar plant in Alcoutim, placed in the north of Algarve on the border with Alentejo, is planned to be in function in 2019, cost 200 million euros and produce 383 gigawatts per year, the equivalent of the early consumption of cities like Leiria or Coimbra. The wave energy production is currently negligible due to its many technical difficulties. Even though its technical difficulties this energy has been a great bet for many entities since it’s constantly producing energy, contrary to solar and wind power.

8th ICEEPSY 2017 International Conference on Education and Educational Psychology EMPATHY PERCEPTION IN SOCIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS: AN INTER-INSTITUTIONAL STUDY

8th ICEEPSY 2017 International Conference on Education and Educational Psychology EMPATHY PERCEPTION IN SOCIAL EDUCATION STUDENTS: AN INTER-INSTITUTIONAL STUDY

We analysed the preliminary descriptive statistics (Mean and Standard Deviation) of the empathy subscales (IRI) and compared the results with studies which had adapted the IRI in Portugal (Limpo et al., 2010) and Spain (Pérez-Albéniz, Paúl, Etxeberría, Montes, & Torres, 2003), where the samples used were also higher education students. As shown in Table 2, for all samples the empathy scores were higher for women. In general, the results of our sample were close to those found in the Portuguese adaptation of the IRI (Limpo et al., 2010). However, the Spanish students showed higher scores for the subscales (in both sexes), which we may lead us to the importance of sociocultural factors in the development of empathy. However, these questions should be studied in greater depth.

The Excellence Baldrige Criteria in The Effectiveness of Higher Education Institutions Management

The Excellence Baldrige Criteria in The Effectiveness of Higher Education Institutions Management

Leadership can be defined as “a process of influencing the activities of a group towards the achievement of its objectives, through an interaction between two or more people who, often, involved in the construction or deconstruction of situations, perceptions and expectations” (SOBRAL and GIMBA, 2012, p. 99). The criterion of Leadership seeks to evaluate the actions of organizational leaders and the perception of these actions in order to achieve the strategic goals of the organization (BPEP, 2011). The objective of the leader expected by the model is then compatible with that suggested by Rocha, Cavalcanti and Souza (2010, p. 36), since “leading corresponds to a process of intentionally influencing an individual in order to achieve a goal”. This represents a consensus in the literature, according to these authors, by pointing out that current approaches to leadership need to take into account the behavior of the leader over their subordinates and should also assess the complex set of variables involved in the environment in which leadership is exercised by abandoning the classical idea of leadership, in which one assumes that the groups are basically similar, at least in relation to the role of the leader (ROCHA, CAVALCANTE and SOUZA, 2010).

Sustainability Indicators for the Management of Brazilian Higher Education Institutions

Sustainability Indicators for the Management of Brazilian Higher Education Institutions

As Silva et al. (2014), Silva and Silva (2013), and Silva and Muniz (2004) all point out, Brazilian HEINS operate in a context of extensive governmental regulation. Within that context, public policies for higher education are related to three central axes: (a) evaluation, carried out by the National System of Higher Education Evaluation (Sistema Nacional de Avaliação da Educação Superior [SINAES]) and operated by the National Institute for Educational Studies and Research Anísio Teixeira (Instituto Nacional de Estudos e Pesquisas Educacionais Anísio Teixeira [INEP]), responsible for articulating multiple processes intended to improve the quality of higher education; (b) regulation, carried out by the Higher Education Office (Secretaria de Educação Superior [SESu]) through administrative acts that authorize and recognize the operation of HEINS and their courses; and (c) supervision, carried out by the National Education Council (Conselho Nacional de Educação [CNE]) and the SESu, responsible for ensuring compliance of higher education services in the federal system with the applicable legislation (INEP, 2009).

The teaching of gerontological nursing in Brazilian public higher education institutions

The teaching of gerontological nursing in Brazilian public higher education institutions

Regarding the disciplines, the topic of care of the older adult was present in all nursing courses analyzed, either by a description in topics, when it was an integrated curriculum, associated with an- other area, such as adult health, or specifically, as the discipline health of the older adult. These find- ings point to a transition period, also evidenced by changes in teaching methodologies, adoption of ac- tive methodologies or changes in approach to the topic. These changes are indicative of the need for a careful and comprehensive look at the specificities of the aging process and the consequent care need- ed. (24,25)

The organization of a program in the area of health requires the exercise of professional practice. As the National Curricular Guidelines indicate, health education assumes a generalist condition; therefore, the exercise of professional practice pervades many areas of expertise. Thus, academic education must subsidize students so that they can develop competencies and skills that are necessary to the exercise of professional practice and required by the supervisory bodies of professional practice and by employers. Enabling the student to learn techniques and procedures is fundamental; therefore, the academic institutions are required to have spaces, equipment and materials that are adequate for simulations of healthcare situations. However, laboratories are not a space that we might call comprehensive care laboratory, which aims to include the student in the reality of the labor world based on users in the territory. The Ministry of Health has strived to attract teachers and students to primary care, as well as to territories of collective life and circulation of the population and its social groups. The aim is that they have contact with health needs,
