Starting Point on the Development of Environemental Risk Management Competences: experiential learning

Irene Martín Rubio, Ana María Tarquis, Diego Andina


One of the characteristics of the European Space of Higher Education  is to consider university degrees in terms of learning outcomes, and essentially expressed in forms of competence. Competencies represent a dynamic combination of attributes such as knowledge and its application, attitudes and responsibilities that describe the learning outcomes of a particular program.

Transversal competences, such as competences towards environmental  risk management, are part of the general characteristics of human action in economic and technical environments.

The training, evaluation and development of professional competences can present different approaches and teaching-learning methodologies. In our study, we focus on learning from experience. With the evaluation of students' learning styles, we can begin to know how our students begin to develop their skills towards environmental risk management.
