Colaboración con la UPV

Marca UPV

Throughout these years I have established a collaboration with the Universitat Politècnica de València which has attempted to delve into different issues associated with its teaching strategy, particularly its mass teaching through MOOCs and SPOCs.

As a result of this collaboration, various works have emerged that have given rise to a number of publications. Some in which I appear, such:

  • Despujol, I., Castaneda, L., & Turro, C. (2018). Developing A MOOC Initiative: Lessons Learned from the Universitat Politècnica de València Experience. Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education19(1), 215-233.
  • Despujol, I. M., Turró, C., Castañeda, L., & Busquets, J. (2017, May). Effect of free certificate discontinuation in completion rates of MOOC. In European Conference on Massive Open Online Courses (pp. 182-187). Springer, Cham.

And others that, although not signed by me, are the result of work that I have had the immense opportunity to direct and that have the imprint and the good fortune of having the support of the UPV:
