Photolitography on flexible substrates
Urbánek, M. ; Urbánek, P. ; Kuřitka, I. ; Kolařík, Vladimír
Nowadays preparation of structures on flexible substrates is highly demanded because of using this patterns in field of flexible electronics. This contribution deals with photolitographic procces for preparation of structures on flexible substrates. The method of photolitography enables to create designed patterns in various material (e.g. metals as conductive layers) on various substrates (silicon wafers, foils, etc.). First the designed pattern is exposed through the mask by UV light into polymer resist, then the pattern is transfered into metal layer by wet etching through the developed windows in resist. In this paper several patterns are prepared through the positive resist PMMA by photolitography into various metal layer (Cu, Al) on flexible substrates.

The result of this work is to propose principles and recommendations leading to the optimization of relationships between teachers. This work, in the terms of qualitative research, used the design of case study. Research techniques are semistructured interview and participant observation. Through them, information was gathered on relationships between teachers, teachers and school management and teachers and other people, with whom they come into contact within the scope of their profession. These relationships were then qualitatively analyzed based on open coding, categorization, typology, contrasting, generalization and validation of communication. The result of the investigation was that six schools out of four have the interpersonal relationships on a good level, educators are happy at work and their good mood and feelings are transmitted to the whole school climate. That creates the conditions for excitable work with good results both in the work of teachers as well as pupils. On one school the relationships between teachers and school management and the...

The thesis deals with an examination in the context of student assessment in higher education. This process is researched in terms of the institutional frame of student assessment at universities and within a real educational process. We would like to point at the topicality of this theme in pedagogical theory, practice and research. Despite the fact that examination and assessment of students at university belongs to the duties of a university teacher this theme has neither been researched nor discussed in Slovakia a lot. The aim of our thesis was to find out how the university students are examined and assessed during a semester in Slovakia and what external factors influence this process. In our theoretical part we concentrate on important aspects of the university student assessment process as they are presented in literature. In the empirical part we describe the research which we have conducted at different faculties of three universities in Slovakia. By means of the qualitative research methods (document analysis, interview, observation) we have elaborated a multiple case study which brings an analysis of the assessment strategies of eight ESP teachers in different study programs. The results of our research show that studied university teachers act in the student assessment process very...

Specifics and development of professional competences of teachers of vocational training
Veleta, Richard ; Vašutová, Jaroslava (advisor) ; Linhartová, Dana (referee) ; Urbánek, Petr (referee)
There are nearly 8 000 teachers of vocational training in the Czech Republic. Their work dramatically influences the future of tens of thousand pupils preparing for specific occupation. These people are being non-formally called master / mistress; and in the past their profession was officially called master of vocational training, master of vocational education. Every graduate from secondary vocational school remembers one or two masters or mistresses who essentially influenced their life and attitude towards work, whether in the best or the worst sense. Despite this fact, we do not know much about teachers of vocational training yet. When we hear the word teacher, we usually think about representatives of other teacher subprofessions- basic school teacher, teacher of general subjects or teacher of vocational subjects. The work of teachers of vocational training seems to be hidden and we must add that these teachers do not dramatically increase the awareness of their work at all. Aim of the thesis is to provide a comprehensive view of the teacher of vocational training and to identify-on the basis of research the most important work activities or tasks of people performing this profession. Such comprehensive description is not available in the contemporary Czech pedagogical literature. The thesis...
