The widespread of data science programming languages and libraries have raised new interest in teaching computational science coding in ways that leverage the capabilities of both single-computer and cluster-based computation infrastructures. Some of the programming patterns and idioms are converging, yet there are specialized uses and cases that require learners to switch from one to another. In this paper, we report on the experience in action research with more than ten cohorts of mixed backg...

The social media debate preceding the 2016 Brexit referendum represents a yet another instance of the growing role of social networking sites, also known as social media, in steering the dynamics of the socio-political process nowadays. Considering the scale of the phenomenon as well as the variety of concerns it raises vis-a-vis transparency, equality, representation, and legitimacy of the political process, it is imperative to query the mechanisms behind the relationship that unfolds between s...

Abstract In the last few years, information and communication technologies (ICTs) and social media have become increasingly relevant to politicians and political parties alike, often used to issue statements or campaigning, among others. At the same time, many citizens have become more involved in politics, partly due to the highly interactive and social environments that the social networking services (SNS) provide. Political events flow through these networks, influencing their users; such eve...

Abstract Persistent Identifier (PID) systems have evolved in the last decade to mitigate the problem of link rot and provide unique and resolvable identifiers for digital objects, becoming a key element in archival services. However, they still depend on centralized services which may either become unavailable or cease to behave or be managed as expected. Decentralized technologies may serve as the infrastructure for the design of a trustless PID system over which other incentive mechanisms may ...
Institutions in higher education (HE) continuously strive to develop and deliver impactful educational programs. At the same time, they should continue to fulfill their mission to educate students in basic applied subjects and in parallel respond to the need to equip students with new skills. For this reason, higher education institutions (HEI) perform periodical curricular reviews adhering to internal and external quality assurance systems. The subsequent curricular reforms are of a transformat...

ABSTRACTThe integration of quality in Higher Education is multidimensional. Higher Education administration, programs, procedures and evaluation provide the context for the application and diffusion of quality metrics. Our research intends to provide a holistic discussion on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) related to quality in Higher Education. The analysis of recent literature resulted in the construction of two research tools. The first one is related to a structured agenda for a qualitativ...

Digital skills are key enablers in a wide spectrum of jobs that require the use of digital tools for information search, communication and problem-solving. The interest on digital skills training has resulted in frameworks and offerings at different educational levels. However, there is a limited understanding on the relative importance of these skills for different stakeholders, and on the instructional methods that may better facilitate their acquisition in the Higher Education (HE) context as...

Problem-based learning has been proved as a good method to teach Software Engineering, concretely when project development skills are involved. In those cases, project work departs from some stakeholder requirements that are often ill-defined, and the team progresses by analysis and design identifying the parts that the team can develop and which of them requires further investigation. From a teaching perspective, agile methods like Scrum perfectly fit the problem-based learning model, since spr...
