    Implementing a Business Information System to improve the quality assurance mechanisms in a Portuguese higher education institution
    2019 - Lopes, Filomena Castro; Morais, Paula
    Higher education institutions (HEIs) face, nowadays, enormous challenges to be competitive in a global world. The competitive environment means that HEIs, like other organizations, must be concerned with evaluating and monitoring their strategic objectives. Business Information (BI) systems combine different sources of information, from different information systems (IS), with analytical tools to present competitive information to planners and decision makers. In this way, BI systems emerge as tools that allow institutions to create future competitive advantages. This paper presents a case study of a Portuguese HEI, describing the implementation of a BI system to support the quality assurance system, and to improve its future strategy. This study focuses on one of the three HEI mission vectors: Teaching and Learning. As a result of this work, it was possible to parameterize the BI system, and to identify the digital information missing in the IS, and the necessary developments to collect it.

    Student´s perceptions of the use of traditional and active learning strategies in the classroom: findings from a case study
    2021 - Fernandes, Sandra; Santos-Pereira, Carla; Lopes, Filomena Castro; Durão, Natércia
    (...) The high levels of absenteeism in class, the lack of interest by the students and the assessment results were some of the main reasons that lead the course lecturer to implement a set of changes in the curricular unit, in the following academic year. These changes included the use of traditional and non-traditional teaching and assessment practices in the classroom such as flipped classroom, team-based learning, brainstorming, lectures, demonstration, gallery walk, review of videos and case studies. To evaluate student satisfaction with these changes, feedback was collected from students, at the end of the semester, through a questionnaire with 26 questions on a five-level Likert scale. The topics addressed in the questionnaire included the following dimensions: teacher performance, teaching and assessment methods, competences development and overall satisfaction with the curricular unit. The participants in the study were 94 students enrolled in the curricular Management Information Systems rd year study plan of the Management degree programme at Portucalense University, Porto, Portugal. This curricular unit is mandatory and has more than one hundred students enrolled every year. The curricular unit ceptions reveal a positive view of the changes implemented, as lectures were considered more interesting and there was more active engagement by the students. (...)

    Development of creativity and critical thinking skills: Findings from students participating in a PBL experience
    2023-07 - Fernandes, Sandra; Lopes, Filomena Castro
    Finding ways to promote the development of skills needed for a successful transition of students from higher education to the labour market is an important issue that needs to be considered by teachers, when organizing the teaching and learning process. Active learning methods, in particular, Project Based Learning (PBL) have proven to be an effective teaching learning approach, bringing the reality of work to the classroom and thus improving the development of student skills. Creativity and critical thinking have been pointed out, in different studies, as one of the most relevant and necessary skills in the labour market since they support the development of societies. In addition, the increasing digitization of human work and the advancement of artificial intelligence reinforce the importance of developing these skills in students, since they are skills that are more difficult to automate and become one of the most valued by the job market. This paper aims to analyse how creativity and critical thinking are developed in the context of a PBL experience. The paper begins with an understanding of what is meant by creativity and critical thinking and then discusses the development of this competence through PBL. It ends with the analysis of a survey applied to students of the 3rd year of the Management degree, within the scope of the curricular unit called Information Systems for Management, which aimed to i) analyse how the teacher, throughout the project (PBL), contributes to the development of these competences and ii) to assess whether the students felt that PBL contributes to the development of these competences.

    Ter de filmar a evolução das tecnologias de informação nos últimos 10 anos, correr-se-á, com grande probabilidade, o risco de ficar o filme desfocado, até porque, por um lado a evolução tem sido muito rápida e por outro é difícil conseguir captar, num só plano, todas as tecnologias emergentes.

    2017 - Sousa, Cristina; Magalhães, Miguel; Costa-Lobo, Cristina; Lopes, Filomena Castro; Fernandes, Sandra
    The purpose of this paper is to describe the EHIS Method© (Entrepreneurship Human Interactions Skills), an innovative entrepreneurship teaching and learning method developed and used at the Entrepreneurship course at Portucalense University (UPT), a private higher education institution in Portugal. EHIS Method© draws on insights from the recent literature on entrepreneurship education and is applied to teach Entrepreneurship in several study programs at UPT, such as Psychology, Social Education, Tourism, Economics, Law, Management, Informatics, Management and Information Systems and Hospitality Management. The students are grouped into teams and challenged to develop an entrepreneurship project, which consists of four different steps: (1) the idea discovery/generation; (2) from the idea to the business model; (3) from the business model to the business plan; (4) from the business plan to the preparation of the application to the Net UPT (business incubator of UPT). Throughout the EHIS Method©, students have to successfully go through a variety of assessment elements, held at different times, encompassing different activities and skills and involving different types of evaluators: (a) teachers/mentors; (b) university professors and (c) potential investors.

    Specific requirements of human resources in the IT sector in Portugal.
    2015 - Baldaque, Alexandra; Azevedo, Casimiro; Costa-Lobo, Cristina; Lopes, Filomena Castro; Morais, Paula; Santos-Pereira, Carla
    The strong growth in recent years in the ICT sector has been limited by the shortage in the number of professionals available to fill the growing number of jobs that emerge in this area. This is a particularly serious problem in Europe where the shortage stubbornly persists, despite the efforts made by European leaders over the past decade. Aware of these needs, we carried out a study on the specific needs of human resources in the ICT sector in Portugal in the view of retraining unemployed, in partnership with ANETIE, National Association of Information Technology and Electronics Enterprises. The study began with a search aiming to identify the existing ICT professions, coming to a list of 15 professions applicable in Portugal. Based on several European studies we constructed a list of technical activities and responsibilities associated with each profession. As the next step a survey was conducted using a questionnaire aimed to gather information about the relevant professions in the ICT sector, the main activities to be undertaken, and the needed skills, not only technical, but also soft, cognitive, business and communication skills. The results show that the Software Developer is the profession with more number of workers existing in the enterprises from the sample, but it is also the most needed in the next three years. Five other professions should, also, be highlighted as the most needed: IT Consultant, Technical Specialist (HW/ SW), Helpdesk Professional, Project Manager and Sales Manager. The CIO profession was not mentioned by any organization.
