This study identifies the perceptions of undergraduate students at the University of São Paulo at Ribeirão Preto, Brazil, College of Nursing (EERP-USP) concerning the teaching-learning process in two courses: “Integrated Seminar: Health-Disease/Care Process in Health Services Policies and Organization”, which was offered to first-year students in 2005 and 2006 and “Integrality in Health Care I and II”, which was offered to second-year students in 2006. The courses’ proposal was to adopt active methodology and competency-based curriculum. Data were collected from written tests submitted to 62 students at the end of the curse, focusing on the tests’ pertinence, development of performance, structure and pedagogical dynamics, organization and settings. Thematic analysis indicated that students enjoyed the courses, highlighted the role of the professor/facilitator at points of the pedagogical cycle and learning recorded in students’ portfolios. Students valued their experience in the Primary Health Care setting, which was based on, and has since the beginning of the program been based on, the theory-professional practice interlocution and closeness to the principles of the Unified Health System (SUS).; Objetivou-se identificar a percepção dos estudantes do bacharelado na EERP/USP...

O ensino superior brasileiro vem passando por um processo de expansão nas últimas décadas, com destaque para os cursos superiores na área de Administração que possuem mais de um milhão de alunos matriculados. No entanto, esta expansão quantitativa não reflete uma expansão qualitativa. Há divergências entre o perfil do egresso destes cursos e as exigências impostas pelo mercado de trabalho. Neste contexto, o modelo de ensino baseado em competências surge como uma tentativa de dirimir este conflito, sendo a opção pedagógica adotada no Espaço Europeu de Educaçao Superior, que inclui a Espanha. Este modelo de ensino altera as práticas docentes exigindo uma formação pedagógica mais adequada do professorado universitário. As universidades espanholas, por meio de seus Institutos de Ciências da Educação, passaram a oferecer programas de formação pedagógica inicial e continuada a seus professores. No Brasil, a Lei de Diretrizes e Bases da Educação Nacional determina que a preparação para o exercício do magistério superior deve ocorrer prioritariamente nos programas de mestrado e doutorado. Todavia, os programas de pósgraduação stricto sensu privilegiam a formação do pesquisador em detrimento da formação do professor. Desta forma...

O processo de internacionalização das universidades brasileiras, em um contexto mundial no qual se multiplicam as interfaces de contato linguístico e, consequentemente, cultural entre os sujeitos, traz como consequência, entre outras, a reflexão sobre a formação de um repertório plurilíngue e o desenvolvimento da competência plurilíngue e pluricultural do estudante nos níveis anteriores de escolarização, antes do ingresso na universidade, e os modos pelos quais isto pode ser alcançado. Esta dissertação tem por objetivo investigar o desenvolvimento da competência de leitura plurilíngue em estudantes de Ensino Médio de uma escola técnica pública do Estado de São Paulo que realizaram um curso de leitura plurilíngue de textos autênticos, segundo a abordagem de ensino de línguas própria à didática do plurilinguismo, a Intercompreensão entre línguas aparentadas. A proposição autoral do curso Leitura Pluriligue que implicou na definição de objetivos, concepção da progressão, do material didático e dos instrumentos de avaliação deve-se à falta de material e de práticas educativas em Intercompreensão voltadas a este público. A implicação da pesquisadora na práxis, em todas as etapas do curso...

Objective To analyze the possibilities and limits of competency-based training in nursing. Method An integrative review of the literature on the subject was carried out, and an analysis was made of the results of a survey evaluating a nursing course based on areas of competency. A dialog was then established between the review and the results of the research. Results On the question of which theoretical type of competency the articles from the literature relate to, there is a predominance of the constructivist perspective, followed by the functionalist approach and the dialog-based approach. In the dialog between the literature and the research, limits and possibilities were observed in the development of a training by areas of competency. Conclusion The dialog-based approach to competency is the proposition that most approximates to the profile defined by the National Curriculum Guidelines for training in nursing, and this was also identified in the evaluation survey that was studied. However, it is found that there are aspects on better work is needed, such as: partnership between school and the workplace, the role of the teacher, the role of the student, and the process of evaluation.

This competency framework was developed by a working group of endocrine specialist nurses with the support of the Society for Endocrinology to enhance the clinical care that adults with an endocrine disorder receive. Nurses should be able to demonstrate that they are functioning at an optimal level in order for patients to receive appropriate care. By formulating a competency framework from which an adult endocrine nurse specialist can work, it is envisaged that their development as professional practitioners can be enhanced. This is the second edition of the Competency Framework for Adult Endocrine Nursing. It introduces four new competencies on benign adrenal tumours, hypo- and hyperparathyroidism, osteoporosis and polycystic ovary syndrome. The authors and the Society for Endocrinology welcome constructive feedback on the document, both nationally and internationally, in anticipation that further developments and ideas can be incorporated into future versions.

Background: As the diversity of the European population evolves, measuring providers’ skillfulness in cross-cultural care and understanding what contextual factors may influence this is increasingly necessary. Given limited information about differences in cultural competency by provider role, we compared cross-cultural skillfulness between physicians and nurses working at a Swiss university hospital. Methods: A survey on cross-cultural care was mailed in November 2010 to front-line providers in Lausanne, Switzerland. This questionnaire included some questions from the previously validated Cross-Cultural Care Survey. We compared physicians’ and nurses’ mean composite scores and proportion of “3-good/4-very good” responses, for nine perceived skillfulness items (4-point Likert-scale) using the validated tool. We used linear regression to examine how provider role (physician vs. nurse) was associated with composite skillfulness scores, adjusting for demographics (gender, non-French dominant language), workplace (time at institution, work-unit “sensitized” to cultural-care), reported cultural-competence training, and cross-cultural care problem-awareness. Results: Of 885 questionnaires, 368 (41.2%) returned the survey: 124 (33.6%) physicians and 244 (66.4%) nurses...

non-peer-reviewed; The hotel industry in Ireland has suffered major turmoil over the last 5 years, and is constantly evolving and reshaping in order to survive (Bacon 2009). The industry comprises of 903 hotels with a total of 60,138 rooms. This is a 35% increase from 2005. That year saw €3.97 Billion in tourism revenue, with this increasing to €4.4 billion in 2007 and dropping to €3.4 billion in 2011 (Ireland 2012). The work of hotel managers involves many projects, from new menu concepts to large refurbishment programs; from small dinner parties to large corporate events. Taking this into account, this research paper looks at whether project management should be included as a competency for graduates of hotel management courses. This paper aims to explore the current situation with regard to the competencies being taught in the educational institutions, by carrying out interviews with general managers of hotels, to determine if the institutions are meeting the requirements they have of graduates. There is much literature available in relation to the competencies and what is required (Tas 1988; Yang & Chen 2009; Chung-Herrera 2003; Nolan et al. 2010; Siu 1998) and more in relation to the perceived gaps in the desired and delivered competences (Cheung et al. 2010; Huang & Lin 2010; Brophy & Kiely 2002; Hawkins et al. 2012; Jauhari 2006) and these areas were critically reviewed.

This study examined differences in cultural competency levels between undergraduate and graduate nursing students (age, ethnicity, gender, language at home, education level, program standing, program track, diversity encounters, and previous diversity training). Participants were 83% women, aged 20 to 62; 50% Hispanic/Latino; with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (n = 82) and a Master of Science in Nursing (n = 62). Degrees included high school diplomas, associate/diplomas, bachelors’ degrees in or out of nursing, and medical doctorate degrees from outside the United States. Students spoke English (n = 82) or Spanish (n = 54). The study used a cross-sectional design guided by the three-dimensional cultural competency model. The Cultural Competency Assessment (CCA) tool is composed of two subscales: Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity (CAS) and Culturally Competent Behaviors (CCB). Multiple regressions, Pearson’s correlations, and ANOVAs determined relationships and differences among undergraduate and graduate students. Findings showed significant differences between undergraduate and graduate nursing students in CAS, p <.016. Students of Hispanic/White/European ethnicity scored higher on the CAS, while White/non-Hispanic students scored lower on the CAS...

This paper attempts to unearth the competency-mix required by entrepreneurs in Australia and Malaysia in order to sustain their ventures. Based on this premise, the present study aims to identify, validate, and compare the competencies perceived to be important by SME entrepreneurs operating in both countries. This involved determining the psychometric rigor of the model and establishing the psychometric properties of the model of entrepreneurial competency using a sample of 391 SME entrepreneurs. Interestingly, it was found that some competencies are context-free while others are culture-specific. The identification of competencies that are highly prevalent in Australia and Malaysia would assist in the development of an assessment index that could be use in training and development programs for practicing as well as prospective SME entrepreneurs.; http://search.informit.com.au/documentSummary;dn=851764310084321;res=IELBUS; Noor Hazlina Ahmad, Carlene Wilson and Liz Kummerow

Background: Successful transition to practice programs that use competency-based assessment require the involvement of all staff, especially those undertaking the preceptor role. Methods: Qualitative data were collected using interview methods. Participants were 14 newly employed nurses and 7 preceptors in the child and family community health service in South Australia. Participant narratives were recorded electronically, transcribed, and thematically analyzed using the paradigm of critical social science. Results: Five themes were identified that describe enablers as well as barriers to applying a flexible transition to practice program using competency-based assessment. These included flexibility in the program design, flexibility on the part of preceptors, flexibility to enable recognition of previous learning, flexibility in the assessment of competencies, and flexibility in workload. Conclusion: To ensure successful application of a transition to practice program using competency-based assessment, preceptors must understand the flexible arrangements built into the program design and have the confidence and competence to apply them.; Lynette Cusack, Sandra Gilbert, Jennifer Fereday.

This article explores the power implications of implementing competency-based assessments within the nursing work environment from a manager's perspective. It discusses how the implementation of competency-based assessments for continuing education may affect workplace culture, in particular, the use of power, within the nursing team. The term "managers" for the purpose of this article is defined as "nurses in senior administrative and educational positions within a health care facility." This article adds to the discourse on competency-based models by emphasizing the effect of the nursing work environment on the competency-based assessment process. It concludes by identifying strategies that can be used by nursing management when designing and implementing an effective and fair competency-based assessment for the nursing workplace.; Lynette Cusack, Morgan Smith

Aims: The aims were to evaluate the effect of a 4.5-week geriatric medicine course on 5th-year medical students' attitudes and self-perceived competency scores. Student performance in the summative multiple choice questions examination in 2011 was compared with results from 2008. Methods: Pre- and post-course attitudes (University of California, Los Angeles Attitudes Survey) and self-perceived competency surveys were administered to 65 5th-year medical students following a 4.5-week geriatric medicine course at one South Australian teaching hospital as part of course evaluation and improvement. Results: Significant improvements in students' attitude (mean pre- and post-attitude score (± standard deviation): 3.34 (1.66) vs 3.66 (1.06); P < 0.001) and self-perceived competency (mean pre and post-competency scores: 2.89 (0.84) and 4.03 (0.56); P < 0.001) were observed. The 2011 multiple choice question results were much better than in 2008 (91.5 (3.6) vs 75.2 (7.9); P < 0.001). Conclusions: A geriatric medicine course for senior medical students allows for improvement in attitudes and self-perceived competency scores.; Khai Loon Tam, Khobe Chandran, Solomon Yu, Shailaja Nair and Renuka Visvanathan

English competency is known as one of the crucial skills in various social contexts in Hong Kong. In tertiary educational setting, English courses do not focus solely on the development of the four language skills. Rather, they put emphasis on the application of English Language for academic use or instrumental use. This paper will investigate the effectiveness of the implementation of competency-based ESL teaching and the learning situation of a group of 70 pre-service teachers of Chinese in a Hong Kong tertiary institute. This paper also intends to draw implications from our findings to answer the following questions: (1) How do tertiary students respond to competencybased ESL teaching and learning? (2) What are the difficulties in implementing competencybased approach? (3) What implications has competency-based ESL teaching and learning drawn to assessment and material design in Hong Kong context? Through answering the above questions, it is hoped that light can be shed on competency-based ESL researches and give insights to the development of competency-based ESL teaching in terms of material design and assessment.; La competencia en ingl??s se entiende como una de las destrezas cruciales en varios contextos sociales de Honk Kong.

POLICY QUESTION: Should the North Carolina Community College System implement Competency-Based Education, and if so, how should the organization lay the groundwork for CBE implementation? BACKGROUND: Community colleges face the challenges of ever-increasing demands on their services and declines in public funding. They are also recognizing a need to provide more effective signaling to employers related to the specific skills and capabilities students can be expected to have when completing programs. Colleges are seeking inventive and “disruptive” policy options in order to face these significant challenges. Competency-based education (CBE) is an innovative educational delivery model in the higher education context that offers one way of hypothetically substantially reducing costs per student. CBE also offers a way of assessing and reporting specific competencies that students have actively and individually demonstrated. As with many community college systems, the North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) strives to balance the priorities of increasing completion rates, maintaining open access to the wide array of potential students, and ensuring the quality of education at their institutions. The NCCCS office is considering the option of implementing a form of competency-based education in its community colleges. To inform its decision-making...

This paper aims to analyse the inclusion of the notion of competencies in undergraduate courses, considering a particular Business Administration course as its main object. This research is qualitative-descriptive, having a case study as its basis. Semi-structured interviews were conducted in all phases, with a total of five interviewees, comprising Course Coordinators, Pedagogy Coordinators, and a Consultant. Categories of analysis had been previously determined, and then data was analysed according to the content analysis method. The outcomes indicate a probable absence of explicitness as to the use of the following subjects competencies and skills; lack of articulation between the skills that are meant to be developed in students and the explicit intentions in students’ formation; teachercentered learning; focus on knowledge transmission rather than on competency formation; difficulties to operate the model based on competency formation. It can be concluded that there was no indication of norms of competency serving as a basis for the formation process, despite the identification of skills to be revealed at the end of the course. On the one hand, there was some evidence of elements of a Pedagogy of Competencies in the course analysed. On the other hand...

Resumo Apresenta um estudo sobre como o Governo Federal trabalha as desigualdades causadas pela exclusão digital. Neste contexto foram mapeadas as iniciativas públicas em inclusão digital na esfera federal, nos últimos dez anos considerando-as sob a óptica do conceito de competência informacional. Constatou-se que a política de governo eletrônico brasileiro está atrelada às iniciativas de inclusão digital e que o setor federal brasileiro está investindo na construção de uma infra-estrutura tecnológica de acesso e na capacitação tecnológica do cidadão. Ademais, cabe ainda ao Governo Federal aumentar os investimentos nas ações que possibilitam as camadas menos favorecidas da sociedade desenvolverem competências necessárias para o uso efetivo da informação, como recurso para o exercício da cidadania.Palavras-chave inclusão digital; competência informacional; governo eletrônico; exercício da cidadania; tecnologia da informaçãoAbstract This is a study on how the Federal Government faces inequalities caused by digital exclusion (or “digital divide”). It maps out public initiatives in digital inclusion in the federal sphere in the last ten years, considered from the point of view of the concept of “informational competency”. Brazilian e-government policy is tied to digital inclusion and the federal government invests in building a technlogical acces infrastructure and in technological citizenship. Moreover...

OBJECTIVE: Several teaching hospitals are currently modifying their curriculum to comply with the changing demands in medical education. As a result, we decided to evaluate whether a competency-based curriculum implemented in a Caribbean teaching hospital fulfilled the requirements as defined by the CanMEDS framework. METHODS: We made use of a triangulation method in the survey to obtain information on the educational process. Two separate methods were used consisting of site visits by visiting professors and a medical educator. The focus was on the structure, content and assessments of the educational activities. RESULTS: Major recommendations included increased involvement of medical specialists in the educational activities in the clinical workplace. There was need for improvement of communication between medical specialists, patients, nurses, trainees and residents. Overall, improvements were observed in the structure of clinical rotations and content of the training programme. CONCLUSION: The implemented assessment programme provided necessary information for effective evaluation of the competency-based curriculum. We were able to identify new and feasible methods for improving the curriculum in our educational setting.
