Leadership and Performance in Higher Education: A Comparative Analysis in Portugal and Spain
Cerda Suarez, Luis Manuel; Hernandez, Wilmar
European Journal of Engineering Education, v37 n6 p592-599 2012
In the last decade, many changes have taken place in the field of university education. Professional practice demands that future graduates design and market products, preserve the interests of their clients, take responsibilities in public administration or participate in politics. Universities must educate professionals so that they become social leaders, consultants, advisers, entrepreneurs; in short, people with the capacity to solve problems. Professors recognise this situation; however, they do not always apply participatory teaching styles to develop these capacities in the students. This paper offers a tool to evaluate the implementation of a transformational teaching style in the classroom, developing joint work between professors and students. Its main contribution is that it assessed several teaching techniques based on this transformational style. This research was carried out in Portugal and Spain. (Contains 6 tables.)
