1. TITLE: An approach to a didactic-pedagogical training strategy for teachers in the subject areas of Clinical care in Physiotherapy, Health promotion, Physiotherapy and Morphological Sciences in the Bachelor in Physical Therapy in the School of Medicine of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico. AUTHOR: Yazmín Castillo Sánchez. ABSTRACT: The current conditions of our society are changing, which have favored the appearance of new patterns of health-disease, where disability and the needs of rehabilitation are a growing problem, requiring a human resource of quality to face that condition.

9. TITLE: Value orientations to the inclusive education teachers in Russia: results of a pilot study. AUTHORS: Oleg Vladimirovich Pavenkov, Mariia Pavenkova Rubtcova. ABSTRACT: The use of sociological instruments reveal the interest of teachers in Russia (St. Petersburg) to people with disabilities and their education. The quantitative investigation was conducted among students of the Faculty of Arts in St. Petersburg State University (60 people), students of the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology, Religious Studies (FBR) of the Russian Christian Humanitarian Academy (50 students), students of the Faculty of Psychology in the Russian Christian Humanitarian Academy of different courses (20 people). The questionnaire and the data proceeding in SPSS were carried out. The results show that students are poorly interested in inclusive education. The main reason of this problem situation is the lack of altruism in behaviour. It is difficult to prepare teachers of inclusive education without involving the altruistic component into the education of psychologists, teachers and social workers who work with disabled people.

10. TITLE: Interdisciplinary, textual, and intertextuality didactic conception for developing the grammatical competence in social communicators. AUTHORS: Kenia María Velázquez Ávila, Ernan Santiesteban Naranjo. ABSTRACT: This article portrays the results of a doctoral research developed in Las Tunas University, Cuba. It emerged from the insufficiencies that social communicators have in the development of their grammatical competence.

It integrates the subsystems of grammatical content, grammatical competence, and the functional comparative method, which favor the grammatical performance of the social communicators in the professional context they interact. The actions done during the experimental period were described, which allowed to portray the effectiveness of the proposal through the transformations observed in the scientific sample. KEY WORDS: grammatical competence, conception, text, interdisciplinary, intertextuality. (Cuba).

34. TITLE: Theoretical implications for the study of the university reform. AUTHOR: Gustavo Toledo Lara. ABSTRACT: From the approach to the reform process driven by the Plan Bologna, it is debated on the recognition of the university as an institution from the conviction that the same institution should be reformed. From empirical findings, and from a qualitative methodology, it is evident, that the change of thinking is more complex than changing organizational structures with a view to a deep socially relevant university reform, since the weight of tradition within the university culture can become a factor of resistance to the natural process of evolution of institutions and therefore the university reform runs the risk of becoming mere changes in form and not substance.

ABSTRACT: Studying leadership has always been relevant, because in the way it manifests, it will influence on the success or failure of the organization, and the universities are not an exception about.  In this respect, this paper pretends to show an analysis done on the appreciation, that in relation to the transactional and transformational leadership, professors and students have about a university campus in a State University in Chile. To achieve that purpose, a Bass and Avolio's (1991) adapted questionnaire of leadership styles was applied to a sample of 50 professors and 128 students. The results showed, in general, an asymmetry between educators' look –in relation to their leadership- and the perception students have about theirs.
