Evaluación de la usabilidad de “Microsoft Teams”: herramienta para el aprendizaje grupal?
2022-12-14, Antino, Mirko, Rodríguez Muñoz, Alfredo, Ruiz-Zorrilla Blanco, Paula, Sánchez Iglesias, Iván, Reyes Luján, Juan José
La herramienta de Microsoft Teams es descrita por sus creadores como “una aplicación de colaboración”, la cual permite a un equipo de personas reunirse de forma virtual, enviar mensajes a través de un chat, compartir archivos y conversaciones en distintos canales, planificar distintos eventos a través de un calendario e integrar otras aplicaciones a las funciones anteriores. Por todo eso, se trata de una herramienta multifunción, diseñada para facilitar el trabajo en remoto de un equipo de personas. En este contexto, el presente proyecto tiene como objeto evaluar la usabilidad, tanto individual como colectiva, de esta herramienta
Short-term trajectories of workplace bullying and its impact on strain: A latent class growth modeling approach
2020-06-11, Rodríguez Muñoz, Alfredo, Antino, Mirko, Ruiz-Zorrilla Blanco, Paula, Sanz-Vergel, Ana, Bakker, Arnold
The aim of this weekly diary study was (a) to identify trajectories of workplace bullying over time and (b) to examine the association of each cluster with strain indicators (i.e., insomnia and anxiety/depression). A sample of 286 employees during 4 weeks of data was used (N occasions = 1,144). Results of latent class growth modeling showed that 3 trajectories could be identified: a nonbullying trajectory, which comprised 90.9% of the sample; an inverted U trajectory; and a delayed increase bullying trajectory; the latter two each had 4.2% of the participants. We found a significant interaction between time and trajectories when predicting insomnia and anxiety/depression, with each strain showing a differential pattern with each trajectory. It seems that the negative effects on insomnia are long-lasting and remain after bullying has already decreased. In the case of anxiety and depression, when bullying decreases strain indicators also decrease. In this study, by examining trajectories of bullying at work over time and their associations with strain, we provide new insights into the temporal dynamics of workplace bullying.
The role of job insecurity and work-family conflict on mental health evolution during COVID-19 lockdown

The aim of this intensive longitudinal study was (1) to explore the temporal evolution of two mental health indicators (anxiety and depressive symptoms, and insomnia) throughout COVID-19 lockdown in Spain, and (2) to examine its association with two work-related stressors (job insecurity and work-family conflict). A sample of 1519 participants responded to several questionnaires during the lockdown (between 16 March and 29 April 2020). Results of latent growth modelling showed a curvilinear increase of our two mental health indicators over time (a logarithmic growth for anxiety and depression, accentuated during the first part of the lockdown, and a quadratic growth for insomnia, accentuated during the second part). Regarding its association with work-related stressors, we found that higher levels of job insecurity and work-family conflict were related to higher levels of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Additionally, we found a significant interaction between time and the two forms of work-family conflict (work-to-home and home-to-work), showing that people with more work-family conflict experienced stronger growth in all mental-health indicators. Overall, this study contributes to the description of the temporal dynamics of mental health during the COVID-19 outbreak in Spain, as well as its association with two key work-related stressors.
