Description

This article describes the development of the portfolio assessment technique as a strategy for teacher education at university level, in order to create a positive relationship between humans and environment. It shows the theorist approach and the research process used to validate the ground hypothesis. As a result, we found that this strategy stimulates the capacity for self-evaluation, empowers students to act responsibly towards the environment, and helps them develop skills for applying environmental knowledge, even though the performance of the students that participated on the experimental design had no statistic significance. Furthermore, it describes a specific experience in order to facilitate the implementation of the strategy by university faculty in any discipline.

Demuestra el acercamiento teórico y el proceso de la investigación usados para validar la hipótesis de tierra. Consecuentemente, encontramos que esta estrategia estimula la capacidad para la autoevaluación, autoriza a estudiantes para actuar responsablemente hacia el ambiente, y les ayuda a desarrollar las habilidades para aplicar conocimiento ambiental, aunque el funcionamiento de los estudiantes que participaron en el diseño experimental no tenía ninguna significación de la estadística. Además, describe una experiencia específica para facilitar la puesta en práctica de la estrategia por la facultad de la universidad en cualquier disciplina.
