ELearning acceptance in hospitals : continuing medical education of healthcare professionals

Bachmann, Larissa ; Cantoni, Lorenzo (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2009.

ELearning provides healthcare professionals an interesting alternative of participating to Continuing Medical Education (CME) activities. It offers the possibility to attend courses at a distance, and it allows creating personal learning schedules without needing to leave the job or the family. Hospitals can choose to organize CME activities for their employees and therefore may also opt to...

Transfer of learning in a boundary crossing training: The case of speech therapists

Bugnon, Alexandra ; Arcidiacono, Francesco ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences, 2010, vol. 2, no. 2, p. 1730–1734

This study explores the speech therapists’ transfer of learning in boundary crossing from the university to the field, in order to understand how to support students in developing an epistemic agency. Our case concerns the qualitative analysis of student's assignments about academic knowledge and professional experiences in order to explore the change (in epistemic agency and boundary crossing)...

The Innovative Milieus Approach: Toward a Territorialized Understanding of the Economy?

Crevoisier, Olivier

In: Economic Geography, 2004, vol. 80, no. 4, p. 367-379

Space has always been more or less present in economic theories. Nevertheless, traditional approaches, as well as the so-called new economic geography, introduce space subsequently. Economic theories are first built independently of spatial and temporal contexts, for example, through costs varying according to distance. The innovative milieus approach is based on the ideas that space—or, more...

La pertinence de l’approche territoriale

Crevoisier, Olivier

In: Revue d’Economie Régionale & Urbaine, 2010, vol. 5, p. 969-985

Using an approach which takes space and time into account brings an original explanation to numerous contemporary questions. Researches on Territorial innovation models (TIMs - MOULAERT and SEKIA, 2003) had and still have considerable impact on innovation studies in a broad range of fields (political economy, geography, sociology, administrative and political science, etc.). We therefore believe...

The nutritional value of aphid honeydew for parasitoids of lepidopteran pests

Faria, Cristina Arantes de ; Turlings, Ted C.J. (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2005 ; 1831.

Feeding on carbohydrate food sources is critical for survival and reproductive success of adult parasitoids. This means that females of many parasitoids will have to periodically interrupt host foraging to find food. If host and food are located in different patches, food searching can be time and energy consuming. This is especially true for most agricultural monocultures were nectar is...

La mise en discours du temps en situation de formation professionnelle initiale: le cas du trempage de l’acier

Filliettaz, Laurent ; Saint-Georges, Ingrid de

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2006, vol. 84, p. 121-141

This paper explores situated interactions in the field of vocational training. It examines how trainers elaborate and share knowledge related to time during moments of teaching of professional practices. Analyzing video-recorded sequences of interactions in a training center, we describe how trainers make this temporal knowledge accessible to apprentices. More specifically, we show how they...

"On peut toucher?" L'orchestration de la perception sensorielle dans des interactions en formation professionnelle initiale

Filliettaz, Laurent

In: Bulletin VALS-ASLA, 2007, vol. 85, p. 11-32

This paper addresses general questions regarding the role of perception and materiality in the field of vocational education and training. It consists in a detailed analysis of a videorecorded sequence of interaction in a vocational school, in which a trainer demonstrates to a small group of apprentices the treatment of heating steel. The analysis consists in stressing the importance of...

Visual learning in individually assayed Drosophila larvae

Gerber, Bertram ; Scherer, Sabine ; Neuser, K. ; Michels, B. ; Hendel, T. ; Stocker, Reinhard F. ; Heisenberg, M.

In: Journal of Experimental Biology, 2004, vol. 207, p. 179-188

An understanding of associative learning is facilitated if it can be analyzed in a simple animal like the fruit fly Drosophila. Here, we introduce the first visual associative learning paradigm for larval Drosophila; this is remarkable as larvae have an order of magnitude fewer neurons than adult flies. Larvae were subjected to either of two reciprocal training regimes: Light+/Dark- or...

A teaching sequence granting space to the students‘ collaborative creation in the music classroom : some observations

Giglio, Marcelo ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: Proceedings of the 23rd International seminar on Research in Music Education, 2010, p. 96-101

Classical traditions of research have generally been centered on the individual processes of musical composition. Our aim is to look at collective processes in order to understand how to provide space for creativity in music education in school. Activity theory, socio-cognitive research on learning, new curricula, analyses of student-teacher interaction and recent studies on collaborative...
