Towards a new governance of tourist destinations: a focus on the management of smart tourism destinations
David Giner Sánchez

The evolution of ICTs and the internet has a clear influence on all areas of tourist destination development, both directly and indirectly, and in both internal and external tasks. Destinations face a new cycle of growth, one in which they must take advantage – to varying degrees – of the use of new technological developments as well as new formulae and strategies for management and planning. Essentially, the challenge is to tackle with assurance the need for reorientation towards a model that is more efficient, one that is adapted to changes in demand, and is based on an integration of all the elements making up the destination, the tourists and the local population.

In this context there emerges a new framework for management, a basic feature of which is the governance of tourism, and in which ICTs and the internet are key factors in the transition to the new model of smart tourism destinations. An important part of the basis for this framework will be knowledge and the active participation of all agents.

A conceptual study of the relationship between the sharing economy and tourism
Pablo Díaz

Tourism is one of the main areas where the sharing economy is expanding. The increasing number of press and journal articles on the topic highlights the relevance – on various levels – of platforms such as Airbnb, Uber or BlaBlaCar. This paper will tackle different aspects of this subject. First, the notion of the sharing economy or collaborative consumption will be defined, examining both its initial definitions that addressed the possibility of a new economic paradigm and more recent descriptions looking at the commercial aspects and the particularities introduced by the use of major technological platforms. The focus then moves on to three aspects that shed light on convergences between sharing economy and tourism: the use of information and communication technologies, the role of references or qualifications, and the disruption of preexisting models. Finally, the conclusions from the study are drawn.

The difficult reconciliation of the corporate responsibility to assess the risks with telework
Mar Sabadell i Bosch, Guillermo García González-Castro

The occupational health paradigm implemented with the Law on Prevention of Occupational Risks in 1995 is promoting new models of preventive management, still incipient, in favor of the so-called healthy organizations. As a result of this change, there has been a move from the traditional concept of safety and health, essentially linked with occupational accidents and diseases, towards a more far-reaching concept, safety and health, including workers' health in its whole extent, whether physical, psychological and social.

After twenty years of the enforcement of the rule, there are many achievements and progress has been made in prevention, but many challenges will arise in the coming years. Among others, those related to the breakdown of space and time barriers in the labor activity as a result of the incorporation of ICT. In this regard, the article deals with the problem that arises in the enforcement of occupational health and safety in telework.

The present analysis focuses on the problem from the very basis of the practical application of the requirement of occupational safety and health in telework, the occupational risk assessment, which is the foundation on which all our regulatory structure on prevention of occupational hazards is built and connected.

The new age of financial markets and their globalisation
Elisabet Ruiz Dotras

The globalisation of financial markets has been based on several factors that have enabled their integration. Two of them are financial deregulation and free movement of capital. Especially relevant to this change has been technological progress regarding the connection between markets. This has encouraged and standardised systems for settling and compensating transactions, speeded up trading with integrated services from different markets, and improved the risk-benefit ratio for investors.

As a result of such big change in the economic environment as well as the financial system and its communication patterns, new innovative financial products have been developed. Their aim is to provide protection from growing volatility and increased risk in all financial transactions.

The negative side of globalisation and the high interconnection between markets is the contagion effect of financial crises. The most recent example is the sub-prime crisis that sparked off in the United States in 2007. This caused a drop in liquidity on the global credit market, which in turn affected the economy of several countries, and showed the weakness of the global financial system and its regulatory framework.

E-vocational Training, Networking and Wages: New Employability, New Paradoxes?
Joan Torrent-Sellens

The paper analyzes the role of e-vocational training in the achievement of new employability conditions that require the emergence of networking, knowledge economy and knowledge society. Under the analytical framework of skill biased technological change (e-SBTC) and from the results of three empirical analysis, four main conclusions have been obtained. First, e-vocational training is not yet strong enough to break the training gap. That is, e-vocational training of workers occurs mainly in more educated and digital skilled-based workers. Second, e-vocational training is revealed as a qualified instrument to improve employability, particularly on the dimensions of acquired skills and satisfaction with the educational design, but less with the training labour applicability. Third, the vast majority of firms, with no structural change, has a problem of relative over-education. That is, they don’t meet the association between a higher educational level and a higher wage. And fourth, although e-vocational training has made considerable progress as a tool to improve workers employability, it actually shows two major weaknesses: 1) the need to enlist more collectives of workers; and, 2) the need to promote e-vocational training as a lever on structural change in firms (complementary with organizational change and ICT uses).

PIMESCAT 2.0: e-learning and ICT Competitiveness Factors
Joan Manzanares

This article explains my final project of the Master in Education and ICT of the UOC (Catalan Open University), which has been prepared following the training program in management projects and organizations with the application of ICT.

The project PIMESCAT 2.0 aims to create a meeting platform for the Catalan SMEs to carry out joint training and conduct ICT training courses for employees of SMEs, which contribute to improve their competitiveness.

This project has been developed following the ADDIE model, as reflected in the structure of the project report, where each phase is explained: Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation of the project. In this course I have developed and implemented a sample unit within a Moodle environment, more specifically, unit 7, dedicated to the design and use of blogs. The pedagogical model of this project is based in Learning by doing.
