“Back during my time at the Universidad Tecnológica de La Habana “Jose Antonio Echeverrı́a”, CUJAE I assist with a workshop on the Problem Base Learning (PBL) approach to teaching. Little did I know about the serious science behind the development of innovative Learning and Teaching approaches. Even less on how far in our history, it is possible to track our “modern” problems and solutions! In the present contribution I share with the readers some of these findings. I will particularly focus on those corresponding to the Hellenistic times of the classical Greco-Roman philosophy, and hopefully, just hopefully, I will be able to transmit how modern these “ancient thoughts” look like.”

“The epistemological beliefs and metacognitive strategies of a sample of university students of Electric Engineering are discussed in this short overview. Significant differences between promoting and non-promoting groups were found regarding both beliefs and strategies. A strong correlation effect was also found between the strategies and beliefs about the structure of knowledge and the ability to learn. ”

“The structure of the HIV matrix shell has not been fully elucidated. In this article, I highlight contributions that led to a model composed of adjacent hexagons forming a sphere and mentioned studies that were subsequently impacted. A cross-disciplinary group of students in my lab tested this hypothesis and conclusively demonstrated that this model was incorrect. I provide a summary of our results with emphasis placed on contributions made by students.”
