Simposio La Educación Superior y los retos para el futuro, internacionalización e integración en la región
XVI Taller Internacional “La Educación Superior y sus Perspectivas”.
Thinking about the prospects of higher education, immersed in a pandemic situation, inevitably implies a glance of humanism. Before the transmission of knowledge and the development of technical skills, the college must offer a safe environment, where soft skills, character strengths, and life competencies can flourish.
Teachers are called to maintain a self-critical posture, a growth mindset and a flexible vision about our work and about the scope of the teaching-learning process that, far from being a one-way speech, should represent a constant and constructive dialogue with our students.
For this, it is necessary to strengthen the vision that as teachers we have about ourselves and our capabilities, in the so-called "new normal", looking with hope and optimism at the current work model, to be an effective reference that inspires with example and that accompanies the process of vocation discovery and confirmation of the next generation of leaders and decision makers.
With that vision of the teacher, it is possible to build and manage an effective learning environment if the following three elements are developed: clarity of expectations, open communication, efficient work structure and constant attention to the socio-emotional needs of our students.
We will share some good practices on the four elements mentioned above, which have flourished regardless of the work modality, in order to enrich the “toolbox” of those who participate in this talk.
