Profession Teacher Is Related to Lifelong (Re)Learning  [PDF]
Jordana Wruck Timm, Juan José Mouri?o Mosquera, Claus Dieter Stob?us
Creative Education (CE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2016.712180
Abstract: Increasingly, the teaching profession is relevant to all areas, as the growing social and economic devaluation that it has suffered. The aim here is to aggrandize the first part, reinforcing the importance of the profession and attenuating the feelings sprouted those who operate in this professional field. Therefore, the objective is to analyze qualitatively the speech of a teacher interviewed, after being for years in this profession, comparing quantitatively with spontaneous responses from people interested in doing the course of Pedagogy and join in education. This confrontation will occur, in order to verify the meaning and significance of the teaching work in their lives. The data analysis was carried out in accordance with Discursive Textual Analysis. It is worth noting that all the text moves through the bias of Health Psychology and Positive Psychology. It was concluded that people interested in joining, currently in the Faculty of Education, according to the respondents here, was afraid as the choice of profession because of mishaps found in it and we were constantly reported by the press as a whole. Apart from that, most of these people think the option of joining the area through a family member (teaching or have taught) or to recognize the importance of it. The interviewed more career time, recognizes the difficulties, however, the positives reported it to prevail, giving the immensity of this work means and gives meaning in your life, just as it does in the lives of other teaching professionals.
Educational Elements for Healthy Aging  [PDF]
Claus Dieter Stob?us, Simone Stochero Kummer, Carolina Schaan Pessano, Jordana Wruck Timm, Juan José Mouri?o Mosquera
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.912136
Abstract: The article attempts to examine aspects of aging, in a positive sense, understanding Education as an aid to preventative measures in the health-care of the elderly, leading to aspects of health and quality of life, emotional health and well-being of the elderly within the framework of Positive Psychology, and its application to educational activities for the elderly. Health is currently a highly popular topic of discourse in all media platforms. Doctors and professionals in the field, in addition to other interested public bodies, comment daily on the issues involved in this topic and, principally, there is now a concern with the planning of preventative measures, as a factor that can guarantee a better quality of life and greater longevity. In addition to the discussions between the authors within the research group Teaching and Learning in Biomedical Gerontology of PUCRS, we used elements developed in our classes in Biomedical Gerontology with our students1.
Genericity in equivariant dynamical systems and equivariant Fuller index theory
Philipp Wruck
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We define a notion of equivariant non-degeneracy of $G$-maps to introduce the class of equivariantly non-degenerate flows on smooth compact manifolds with compact Lie group action. We prove genericity of this class and use this result to construct an equivariant version of the Fuller index, which detects group orbits of periodic orbits of the flow, distinguished by their isotropy.
Axiomatic Description of Lefschetz Type Equivariant Homotopy Invariants
Philipp Wruck
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: We describe generators of universal Lefschetz groups consisting of self-maps of equivariant 1-spheres. This allows to formulate a normalization axiom which, together with the usual axioms, determines an equivariant Lefschetz number uniquely. We apply this technique to identify the fixed orbit detecting equivariant Lefschetz number of Chorny with the fixed orbit index of Dzedzej.
Equivariant Lefschetz and Fuller indices via topological intersection theory
Philipp Wruck
Mathematics , 2013,
Abstract: For a compact Lie group G, we use G-equivariant Poincar\'e duality for ordinary RO(G)-graded homology to define an equivariant intersection product, the dual of the equivariant cup product. Using this, we give a homological construction of the equivariant Lefschetz number and a simple proof of the equivariant Lefschetz fixed point theorem. With similar techniques, an equivariant Fuller index with values in the rationalized Burnside ring is constructed.
Wheelchair Seating: Peak Pressure Distribution in Young versus Elderly Healthy Controls  [PDF]
Marina Timm, Kersti Samuelsson
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2019.72003
Abstract: Background: People may use a wheelchair when they need assistance with mobility. Some users have to remain seated in their wheelchair for most of their awake time and for a lot of activities. The need for a well fitted and supportive wheelchair is important and, for those who use the wheelchair for many hours, peak pressure distribution is of interest to prevent pressure ulcers and discomfort. Aim: To describe how high local peak pressures may be distributed over risk areas for pressure ulcers in different wheelchair settings. Methods: Two groups of healthy adults were recruited (40 elderly and 30 younger individuals). Two standard models of manual wheelchairs were used together with two types of wheelchair cushions. Results: The elderly group had a higher peak pressure over the ischial tuberosity and increased posterior pelvic rotation in the shaped seat cushion. Both groups had higher peak pressure over the trochanter in the shaped seat cushion. Peak pressure was also higher over the coccyx for the elderly in the shaped seat cushion compared with the plain cushion; this was lower for the younger group. Discussion: The results indicate that age might influence the important physical prerequisites when fitting a wheelchair to an individual.
Evaluación Continua Aplicada a la Asignatura Componentes y Circuitos en su Adecuación al Espacio Europeo de Educación Superior (EEES)
Formación universitaria , 2009, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-50062009000100006
Abstract: this paper describes the continuous evaluation applied to the course components and circuits in the telecommunications engineering degree of the castelldefels school of technology in the autumn semester of 2006. the paper explores the relationship between the academic performance achieved by students, their previous studies and the results of the university entrance evaluation. this work demonstrates that there is a clear correlation between overall academic performance and the mark obtained to enter the university. this continuous evaluation study along with the application of active learning methodologies has allowed about 50% of students has passed the course.

Producción y percepción de bienes públicos en la lógica de la acción colectiva
Jordana, Jacint
Revista Internacional de Sociologia , 2007,
Abstract: Public goods having different proprieties produce different problems of collective action. This hypothesis has been discussed from different analytical perspectives and we examine their arguments, aiming to deepen our theoretical understanding about the logic of collective action. In this paper we look for similarities and differences regarding their use of concepts and expected results. Simultaneously, we examine the link between different public goods and the interdependent behavior of individuals. To this purpose, we also revisit the connections between production functions and consumption types in the case of public goods, as a mean to explore the potential development of more elaborated models in the theory of collective action, and suggest that more empirical contrast of these models is needed. Finally, we argue the importance for theoretical discussions to include a discussion about the impact of perception in the collective action models, considering systematic deviations to rational choice, and conclude that no single theory may address all collective action problems, but systematic patterns of behavior may be identified and empirically confirmed. Bienes públicos con distintas propiedades generan problemas diferentes de acción colectiva. Esta hipótesis ha sido discutida, desde distintas perspectivas analíticas, con el objeto de profundizar teóricamente sobre la lógica de la acción colectiva. En este trabajo se revisan las aportaciones recientes a esta cuestión, analizando sus puntos de encuentro y sus divergencias en cuanto a conceptos y resultados esperados. Asimismo, se examina la relación entre tipos distintos de bienes públicos y el comportamiento interdependiente de los individuos. Con este fin, los vínculos entre las funciones de producción y las formas de consumo de bienes públicos también son considerados, ya que permite desarrollar modelos más ambiciosos sobre la lógica de la acción colectiva. Finalmente, se considera la existencia de posibles problemas de percepción en los individuos que participan en la acción colectiva, produciendo desviaciones sistemáticas en la racionalidad de las decisiones, lo que nos permite concluir que, en lugar de pretender una teoría que incluya todos los problemas de la acción colectiva, deberíamos identificar patrones sistemáticos de comportamiento, susceptibles de ser contrastados empíricamente.
Soberanía transitiva y adhesión condicional: lealtad e insurrección en el Reino de Guatemala, 1808-1811
Jordana Dym
Araucaria , 2007,
Abstract: Entre 1808 y 1812 los reinos, las provincias y las ciudades del imperio espa ol formaron juntas gubernativas en respuesta a la invasión de Napoleón Bonaparte sobre la Península espa ola. Este ensayo considera cómo los cabildos de las ciudades principales de la Capitanía General de Guatemala (hoy América Central) apropiaron el lenguaje utilizado por las juntas sobre el pactismo, la soberanía de los pueblos y la representación popular. Por un lado, subrayaron en 1808 tanto su lealtad al rey cautivo Fernando VII para sacar mayores derechos para las instituciones locales, como al cabildo, y en 1810- 1811, su derecho de organizar junti-ayuntamientos con el fin de insistir en una autonomía más amplia. En una palabra, se demuestra que aunque las ciudades de América Central no formaron juntas idénticas a las de México, Caracas o Sevilla; sí manejaban las mismas ideas e ideales en la lealtad o la insurrección para reclamar el aumento de la autonomía local y el derecho de participar directamente en el gobierno imperial o nacional.
