A view of my daily walks around New Mexico University Campus during a course last August-September 2008.
Let's discuss it!
Last Saturday March 31st some of us went to the Macmillan Forum “La RES se convierte en un proyecto propio”. There it was discussed the concept of Competence. Manuel Luna Figueroa said:
"Competence is the capacity to mobilize knowledge, that is, “to put into practice” in a real and existential situation" (Luna, 2007).
If this concept can be defined in these terms it is important to consider next:
a) Knowledge must be put into practice,
b) That knowledge should be used in real and existential situations.
What can we do as teachers to improve students’ capacities to put knowledge into practice using it in real and existential situations?
