PASTOR RAMIREZ, Danilo; ARCOS MEDINA, Gloria de Lourdes  and  LAGUNES DOMINGUEZ, Agustín. Developing research capacities for undergraduate students using instructional strategies in virtual learning environments. Apert. (Guadalaj., Jal.)

This paper contributes to the development of research skills in university students, through the use of instructional strategies in virtual learning environments, in order to achieve that students obtain the necessary skills and abilities to improve their research processes. To determine which are the research capacities to be developed, a literature review is carried out, whose objective is to identify the studies that are suitable with the teaching strategies. An analysis of the instructional strategies that can be carried out with the research capabilities of undergraduate students is also performed. The virtual classroom designed to be applied to students in teaching research skills is described. To validate the proposed competencies, the students were evaluated to determine the level of development of the research competencies through a questionnaire that measures their knowledge and a global improvement in the application of the investigative competences of 13.5% is obtained, demonstrating the validity of the use of instructional strategies through a virtual environment.

Keywords : Research capacities; instructional strategies; virtual learning environment; research.
