2019 , Ruiz-Leyva, María de Lourdes , Chávez Tellerias, Rocio , Azcárraga, Mariana

This paper describes the learning experience designed by combining augmented reality, role playing and storytelling to improve university students’ knowledge on responsible alcohol consumption. Five implementations of the experience were done along the august-december 2018 semester; 122 students participated from 8 schools and faculties and 13 different undergraduate programs. Students’ knowledge on responsible alcohol consumption was evaluated at the beginning of the experience through a gamified test. Then they learned important facts about responsible alcohol consumption by solving a case, using augmented reality; and finally, they were tested again. Results show that 92.72% of students considered that this experience helped them learn in a more creative and memorable way, and sparked their motivation and curiosity; 76.53% declared the experience design helped them deepen on their knowledge about this topic; and finally, their knowledge on responsible alcohol consumption improved by 16.83% as shown by their performance on the initial and final tests. ©2019 IATED Academy.

Implementation of an Ethics Committee in a University Mental Health Clinic

2023 , Azcárraga Quiza, Mariana Estefanía , Derive, Stéphanie

Mental disorders in university students are very frequent, therefore higher education institutions have established in-campus mental healthcare centres. These clinics have particular characteristics that differ from other mental health centres, as they report to and represent an educational institution, while at the same time looking after the interests and well-being of patients requesting assistance, thus generating unique bioethical conflicts. Ethics Committees are useful tools to offer support to mental health professionals in making ethical decisions. In order to respond to these issues, it was decided that an Ethics Committee would be created in the mental health clinic of a private university in Mexico City. This article describes the implementation process for this Committee, its duties and scope, as well as the case work and review methodology. A list of the most frequent ethical conflicts is attached, jointly with the ethical analysis of the cases treated throughout the year and a half or work by the Committee.
