Significant progress has recently been made in calculating muon stopping sites using density functional theory. The technique aims to address two of the most common criticisms of the muon-spin spectroscopy (μ+SR) technique, namely, where in the sample does the muon stop, and what is its effect on its local environment. We have designed and develope...

Con la irrupción de la COVID-19, la comunidad educativa necesitado incorporar nuevos enfoques metodológicos para enfrentarse a las formas de docencia que ha requerido el escenario de pandemia. Uno de estos enfoques es la gamificación (introducir contenidos educativos de manera lúdica). En la Educación Superior, la gamificación ha de tener un nivel...

The purpose of the research is to analyze the opinions of the graduates in Social Work of the University of La Laguna about their Study Plan, in order that it can serve to evaluate, improve and update this and other curricula of the discipline in other university centres. This work has a descriptive quantitative method and used a questionnaire for...

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted higher university lecturers to develop their digital skills in order to adapt to online teaching. A group of university teachers decided to evaluate the educational uses of Mentimeter to promote student participation and active learning. A questionnaire was answered by 400 students and 12 participating academics....

Significant progress has recently been made in calculating muon stopping sites using density functional theory. The technique aims to address two of the most common criticisms of the muon-spin spectroscopy ($\mu^+$SR) technique, namely, where in the sample does the muon stop, and what is its effect on its local environment. We have designed and dev...

Este trabajo analiza la transexualidad desde un enfoque sociológico apoyado en el concepto de identidad como elemento clave de la construcción del sujeto transexual, utilizando la revisión documental y bibliográfica como método. Los resultados muestran que el ámbito médico ha influido de una manera destacada sobre la interpretación e interacción de...

... First-principles calculations allow us to compute candidate muon sites and gain an insight into how the muon probes materials. This method (DFT+ [5][6][7]) involves performing a geometry optimisation calculation of the structure with an additional reduced-mass hydrogen atom representing a bare muon (Mu + ) or a muonium (Mu 0 ) atom. The initial implantation site is chosen randomly with the constraint that initial positions must be a minimum distance of 1 Å from the atoms and 0.5 Å from the other sites. ...
... It is envisioned that the introduction of TeL in Physics will promote students' achievement [1]. In addition, integrating technology in the teaching and learning of Physics supports teaching methodologies that embrace the active participation of students [15]. During the COVID-19 outbreak, it was noted that most lecturers were struggling with online teaching. ...
