An action research method&nbsp;was used&nbsp;in this study to create, assess, and improve an intervention strategy of developing the contractor H&amp;S team competencies using experiential learning at the work site. A training and development program that used classroom instruction, hazard control bulletins for specific site hazards, and experiential learning activities supported by task observation checklists to aid in hazard identification in the work area&nbsp;was developed&nbsp;and implemented. The experiential learning process used a four-step cyclic process of planning for task observation in the work area, observation, engagement, and reflection. Task observation checklists were developed and became an effective tool to support hazard recognition. The average number of at-risk deficiencies identified and corrected per observation was three. Critical reflection after the task observation and engagement experience was used by the H&amp;S practitioners to recognize what&nbsp;they&nbsp;learned, how the learning could be applied to future situations, and reflection allowed for the consideration of what knowledge and skills still required further development.&nbsp;This study found that the experiential learning approach&nbsp;implemented, supported by mentoring was effective to train health and safety practitioners in the evidence-based practice of hazard identification and risk management in their work areas.</p> 2020-07-31T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The linkage of Institutions of Higher Education with the productive sector, a strategic factor for sustainable social development 2020-06-30T03:02:56+00:00 María Elena Calles Santoyo Juana Laura Martínez Conchos Alcides Ramos Sánchez <p>The Institutions of Higher Education (IES) as trainers of knowledge, are immersed in the search and effective selection of information, which allows to transform it into knowledge for its most important client: the student, and in turn transcends to its productive environment. It is up to IES to prepare their graduates to assume, from the first years of their training, the responsibility of facing the labor market with the necessary and sufficient elements to join existing or preferred jobs, to venture into the creation of sources of employment. The challenges of globalization constitute for HEIs a great challenge for innovation and the generation of new knowledge for the benefit of society that allows us to respond to their social needs and requirements that are required for sustainable social development.</p> 2020-06-30T03:02:56+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 María Elena Calles Santoyo, Juana Laura Martínez Conchos, Alcides Ramos Sánchez Education and teacher training for sustainable social development: a commentary from the socio-training 2020-06-29T06:15:00+00:00 Sergio Alejandro Arredondo Cortés <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Teacher training has an unprecedented importance in different educational systems, in this same line the care of the environment and sustainable social development require a place within the preparation that teachers must acquire.

It is a documentary analysis around several categories, the study constitutes an approach to the knowledge of concepts such as comprehensive education, socio-emotional skills, emotional intelligence, complex thinking, social training, shaping the state of the art around the subject. From this analysis, it is evident that it is still necessary to advance in methodologies and strategies tending to the socio-emotional development of the students; to guarantee, in this way, a comprehensive training for them, mainly at higher education level. However, there are interesting contributions to improve the exhaustiveness of their training, as well as the complex unity of the holistic approach to cognitive and affective aspects.</p> 2020-06-30T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Miriam Carrillo Ruiz
