Nuevos Desafíos para Repensar la Formación del Profesorado Ecuatoriano

Translated title of the contribution: New Challenges to Rethink Ecuadorian Teacher Training

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Teacher training in Ecuador has traditionally been linked to the guidelines of public policy and the national curriculum, which have defined the work of teachers, classroom work and what initial teacher training institutions should prioritize in terms of teacher training. The last few years have presented great transformations in the education sector, in addition to the revaluation of the teaching profession. New training challenges have arisen, no longer only from the perspective of the teacher as the executor of a curriculum, but as a fundamental actor in the educational process. It is necessary to rethink teacher training from and for critical reflection and research, for reflection on the curriculum, on their own practices and their relevance in relation to the contexts where they are developed.
