Revista de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades 2477-9083 Multidisciplinary intervention of the social worker in the gerontological area <p>The vulnerability of older adults requires specialized attention by agencies that contribute to their quality of life, as a response to the problem that can be complicated in social settings. The objective of this research was to identify the multidisciplinary intervention of social work in the gerontological area at the Guillermina Loor de Moreno Gerontological Center in the city of Portoviejo, Ecuador. The study was descriptive, with a qualitative approach, the interview technique was used as a source of information collection and the interview guide was applied to the social worker of the gerontological center as an instrument. The results show that the participation of the social worker with the multidisciplinary team in the assessment process of the elderly person allows the organization, programming, and evaluation of the center's activities, which is why complementary activities are implemented, such as the identification, mapping, and coordination of networks with other institutions, which effectively allow the elderly people in street situations to join the gerontological center. The interinstitutional management carried out by social workers in the gerontological center allows it to integrate prevention and health promotion strategies, seeking comprehensive palliative actions, which follow systematic evaluation processes.</p> Cristhian Michael Bailón Anchundia Ligia Estela Loor Lino Copyright (c) 2021 Cristhian Michael Bailón Anchundia, Ligia Estela Loor Lino 2021-09-26 2021-09-26 6 29 e210823 e210823 10.46652/rgn.v6i29.823 Validation of a rubric for teaching competencies in the framework of key learnings <p>Considering the limited research and instruments that assess teaching competencies within the framework of key learning, the article summarizes the design and validation of a rubric aimed at assessing their pedagogical knowledge in the educational field. Ten items were considered for the design of the instrument with their respective performance descriptors related to the evaluation of teaching competencies on key learning. For the validation process, the items were reviewed by three experts who provided syntax and wording suggestions aimed at improving comprehension and interpretation. In the next phase, the instrument was evaluated by a team of thirteen expert judges, who provided an assessment of the content validity of the items and performance descriptors, obtaining optimal values for each item (Aiken's v&gt;0.80), both in relevance and wording, showing an excellent degree of understanding of instructions and items, therefore, it is considered that the instrument is feasible to assess the teaching competencies.</p> Florentino López Copyright (c) 2021 Florentino López 2021-09-21 2021-09-21 6 29 e210827 e210827 10.46652/rgn.v6i29.827 Presentation of the Dossier.

Therefore, the methodology used focuses on a critical and exegetical stance of Marx's texts from the perspective of the Ecuadorian Mexican thinker, where Echeverría's perspective on the value that is valued is explored, as well as the role of nature, which ends up being itself an exploitable commodity in the dynamics of the capitalist mode of production, becoming a fundamental aspect in the constant creation of social identity.</p> José Emanuel Campos Madrigal Copyright (c) 2021 José Emanuel Campos Madrigal 2021-09-18 2021-09-18 6 29 e210837 e210837 10.46652/rgn.v6i29.837 The role of the teacher from the psychological humanism. An epistemological view <p>The objective of the article was to find the relationship between the cognitive faculties of the cognitive subject and the problems of knowledge in the construction of the arguments on the role of the teacher from the humanistic psychological theory applied to education. The methodology used was the epistemological analysis of the discourse, deciphering the gnoseological senses and meanings of the ideas, judgments, and reasoning used by the theoreticians of this current in the mentioned edification, seeking to understand the cognitive faculties with which they intend to solve the philosophical problems of knowledge in it. The results reveal the existence of a relationship or correspondence of dependence of the cognitive faculties of the cognitive subject with respect to certain problems of knowledge from which the proposal is built from the said psychological current. Finally, it is concluded that behind the analyzed proposal, there are certain cognitive faculties that determine the way in which the main problems of knowledge are intended to be solved in the construction of the studied concept.</p> José Nava Copyright (c) 2021 José Nava 2021-09-15 2021-09-15 6 29 e210829 e210829 10.46652/rgn.v6i29.829
