Research

Manuel Caeiro Rodríguez has an intense research experience through continuous participation and increasingly assuming greater responsibility in different research projects, both European, national and regional calls, as well as numerous contracts with companies and publications. In particular, it accredits participation in 7 European research projects.

He has also participated continuously and consecutively since 2004 in 3 research projects of the National R & D Plan, assuming the direction of some modules in the last two linked to the realization of doctoral theses (on the integration of tools in 2010 and on the support for adaptive execution in 2013). He is currently participating in a research project of the current National R & D Plan on multimodal analytics with wearables. Similarly, he has participated in several projects financed by the Xunta de Galicia and the University of Vigo.

    Electrical Energy Markets and Engineering Education (ELEMEND) (2017 - 1 - TR01 - KA201 – 045926)

    The new paradigms of electricity grids and markets require that staff employed in electrical energy related jobs as well as electricity end users are properly educated and trained.

    The new paradigms of electricity grids and markets require that staff employed in electrical energy related jobs as well as electricity end users are properly educated and trained. The electrical engineering curricula in WBC, formed to serve the conventional model of one large scale power grid, owned and operated by one company, need to adapt.

    ELEMEND aims to provide, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Kosovo with high profile professionals in intelligent microgrid technologies and emerging electrical energy markets in line with societal and market needs in the Western Balkans. Capacity building in engineering academic staff and students as well as in the general public (through dissemination activities) will create a favourable envirronment for energy related business and will modify the electricity user’s behaviour.

    Galician Network for Dementias Research (REGIDEM) (IN607C 2017/02)

    La Red Gallega de Investigación en Demencias (REGIDEM) se presenta como un esfuerzo de investigación colaborativa y multidisciplinar en un tema de inmensa repercusión científica, clínica y social, como son las demencias, y que incluye a actores del ámbito de la investigación básica, clínica y grupos sociales, y el apoyo de la Consellería de Política Social de la Xunta de Galicia.

    REGIDEM aspires to be the first network dedicated to dementia where we bring together all the sectors involved, from the research groups of the 3 universities, health research institutes, hospitals, to associations of sick people and family members and to the private sector (gerontological and geriatric care). REGIDEM has its origin in the Working Group on Dementias sponsored by the Galician Federation of Associations of Relatives of Alzheimer’s patients (FAGAL). As partners of the same, 9 Galician research groups are included.

    TELGalicia 3.0: Technology-Enhanced Learning Galicia (ED431D 2017/12)

    The TELGalicia network (TechnologyEnhanced Learning Galicia) seeks to improve the use of classroom technologies through not only technological innovation, but also pedagogical innovation and the appropriate union between the two.

    This action renews the first concession of the network, which has been carried out between 2012 and 2013. With this new re-edition the network was expanded with two other partners. In addition, the network has the participation of various national and European groups.

    Since its inception in 2012, the network focused its efforts on research in the development of solutions to support primary and secondary education. The most outstanding result was Edu-AREA, a web application that follows the principles of Web 2.0 (social) and the Web 3.0 technologies (semantics) are applied.

    Within the context of Edu-AREA, the main objectives are:

    • Develop experiences in educational centers with teachers who use the application in their teaching.
    • Define a framework of reference on teacher competences at the technological level to guide teaching innovation.
    • Study and introduce a mechanism to evaluate and ensure quality.
    • Study and introduce mechanisms that favor the active participation of teachers.

    Active Digital Learning Environments in Schools (ADLES) (2017 - 1 - TR01 - KA201 – 045926)

    Traditional learning methodologies based on the passive transmission of information do not develop competences that students require to successfully continue their studies and/or move into a professional life.

    Traditional learning methodologies based on the passive transmission of information do not develop competences that students require to successfully continue their studies and/or move into a professional life. Furthermore, these passive methodologies do not motivate the net-generation or “digital native” students that are very much accustomed to the ubiquitous use of technology, are used to quickly absorb information in short chunks, and want to get instant responses and feedback. These students expect to be active in their learning!

    Therefore, schools and teachers need to change their pedagogical methodologies, moving into active learning processes whereby students engage in activities that promote higher order learning skills like analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Examples of these methodologies are Project and Problem-based learning (PBL), learner-centered processes, in which students develop their knowledge and competences by following a problem solving process, usually based on real-life situations. The identified benefits for students are considerable improvements in critical, lateral and creative thinking, problem solving, intrinsic motivation, team work, group collaboration, leadership and communication.

  • Lean and Agile Practices Linking Engineering and Higher Education to Industry (LEAP) (2016 - 1 - EL01 - KA203 – 023624)

    Lean and Agile Practices Linking Engineering and Higher Education to Industry (LEAP) (2016 - 1 - EL01 - KA203 – 023624)

    LEAP aims at building experience and knowledge among higher education students on emerging lean and agile industry practices empowering them to effectively transition into the professional world, focusing on engineering disciplines.

    LEAP aims at building experience and knowledge among higher education students on emerging lean and agile industry practices empowering them to effectively transition into the professional world, focusing on engineering disciplines. The project further aims at closing the new digital divide by promoting the development of high quality digital content for higher education linked to both academic and industry needs. Lean practices will encourage students to design solutions that meet needs while minimizing the deployment of resources. Agile practices expose students to industry cycles in which design is integrated throughout production processes, as opposed to only in the early stages of production, ensuring that the final product effectively addresses consumer needs.

    LEAP deploys serious games that encourage learners to adopt industry roles, to think critically for addressing community and societal needs through agile engineering solutions, to practice on the application of industrial process management in the context of their higher education curricula, and to take into account environmental responsibility issues in service design and implementation. Recognizing the importance of supporting educators on integrating the proposed innovative learning methods and tools into their teaching practices LEAP will further develop good practice guidelines and instructor support content.
