Competence Model for Students of Faculty of Mining and Geology of VŠB – Technical University of Ostrava from Perspective of Mining Companies

Abstract: At present, competencies play a significant role in the area of managing human resources. Within the framework of competition, management according to competencies enables to find such employees who become a significant production factor for their company – thus they partake in increasing the competition level of their employer. Another area (where competence models may be utilized) is the process of rating employees and needs of further education which imply from it. Competencies also have their considerable position within educational institutions. Demands of the labour market imposed on job applicants should be projected into educational programs of both secondary schools and universities. School graduates at the end of the educational process should observe demands of employers in the branch they studied. The article deals with the relevance of competencies and competence models within the process of managing human resources. The article concurrently adverts to the importance of developing competencies within the educational process; in particular, it adverts to differences between the expected and real levels of competencies of applicants for a job, who stem from university graduates. The dilemma is focused on competencies in the area of mining industry and students Faculty of Mining and Geology, VŠB-Technical University of Ostrava.

Studenti, kteří odcházejí: Kvantitativní analýza nedokončených vysokoškolských studií

Leaving Students. Quantitative Analysis of University Dropouts

Abstract: Our analysis is based on the quantitative research of students, who left one of the study programmes at the anonymous Czech university before getting a degree. The paper describes the basic parametres of the population of drop-out students and provides an insight into the subjective reasons for leaving, into the subjective study coping abilities and investigates other important factors of drop-out. We are stressing the fact that the population of leaving student is not homogenous and that the concept of the study failure could explain only one third of drop-outs. On the other hand, a big proportion of drop-outs can be explained as a result of the postponed choice of study programme or as the conflict between various spheres of life.

U-MAP jako nástroj pro sledování diverzity českých vysokých škol

U-MAP as a Tool for Mapping Diversity of Czech Higher Education Institutions

Abstract: The study deals with the application of U-MAP classification as a tool for mapping diversity of higher education. The research question is how can U-MAP be applied to Czech higher education and how it appears through diversity of Czech HEIs. In theoretical part, we use the documents that contributed to diversification of HEIs in the country and conceptual texts related to institutional diversity of HEIs. The main methodological basis stands on the original U-MAP. Selected statistics procedures (quartile division, minimum and maximum values) were used for data analysis. This study verifies applicability of U-MAP, points out some of the problematic areas (also in relation to the experience of other European countries) and shows different levels of diversity of U-MAP dimensions for HEIs in the Czech Republic.

Podpora výzkumu, vývoje a inovací v Moravskoslezském kraji

RTDI Support in Moravian-Silesian Region

Abstract: The article focuses on different iniciatives in support for research, technological development and innovation (RTDI) in the Moravian-Silesian Region in the north-eastern part of the Czech Republic. The region has undergone a process of de-industrialization in last 25 years and several initiatives tried to pursue the transition of its economical base in hard industry into knowledgebased society. Despite this initiatives mainly linked to Structural funds investment, the region is still underperforming on the EU level. The article argues that this is due to the often political changes of priorities in the RTDI.

Results of the International Project IBAR

Abstract: In the project Identifying Barriers in Promoting European Standards and Guidelines for Quality Assurance at Institutional Level (IBAR) participated in 2011- 2013 research teams from seven institutions: Centre for Higher Education Studies (Prague, Czech Republic – coordinator of the project), Durham University (United Kingdom), Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies (University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands), Centre for Research in Higher Education Policies (Matosinhos, Portugal), Warsaw School of Economics (Poland), Constantine the Philosopher University in Nitra (Slovakia), University of Latvia (Riga, Latvia). The mostly qualitative research took place on 4 HEIs at each participating country and concerned 8 thematic areas related to quality of higher education: internal quality assurance systems, access, students, management/governance, stakeholders, teaching staff, information, cooperation with secondary schools. The research demonstrated that at most of surveyed HEIs the quality assurance is in accordance with the European Standards and Guidelines, even if the explicit references to them in the strategic documents are often missing. As the main identified barrier it could be indicated the very low awareness about ESG between academic staff. On the other hand, many examples of good practice in the quality assurance have been found. All results are presented at www.ibar-llp.eu.
