How do designers negotiate the gap between these two sides of thier profession, and how is emerging technology affecting thier ability to be both objective and subjectively creative in the digital age.
Digital natives, the generation grown up surrounded by digital technology and the Internet, are tomorrow’s stakeholders and will affect organizations and their environments greatly.

The short time practitioners have with their patients does not facilitate informed decision making and checking all possibilities.

However, current Clinical Guidelines are available in text format as long documents, which render them difficult to consult and to integrate in clinical Decision Support Systems. With this paper we present a new model for guideline interpretation, in order to facilitate de development of guide...
Esta dissertação enquadra-se na necessidade crescente da sociedade em “orientar” as relações pessoais e interpessoais na ligação laboral, académica e pessoal. Desde os primórdios da sua existência que o ser humano avalia e é avaliado. A existência de um instrumento digital que, na sua génese é, uma mais-valia nessa difícil e árdua tarefa que é o processo avaliativo e que registe as análises e a documentação do trabalho desenvolvido é a “questão” do portefólio digital (e-portefólio). Na aurora das TIC imergiram inúmeras plataformas relacionadas com o ensino/aprendizagem e a socialização. A observação de ferramentas assessoradas na estrutura de portefólio permite a contextualização e o enquadramento do portefólio digital (e-portefólio). A análise do existente sobre a temática, a sua aplicabilidade e as experiências complementadas com o e...
