The present essay is based on the need to reflect on contemporary theoretical and practical aspects in the formation of the communicator from the particular Ecuadorian context, with emphasis on Latin American debates and also with a global perspective. The proposal is outlined around the main challenges in the learning that communication students must have to exercise the profession. This work was outlined by a group of professors of the Communications career at the Salesian Polytechnic University at the time of outlining the curricular redesign project of the professional career, which should also respond to the requirements of the country's higher education supervisory bodies.1 The authors met throughout 2015, in lengthy work sessions in which they collaboratively wrote an initial document that was later enriched with contributions from other colleagues. The central objective of the proposal is to lay the necessary foundations for the formation of communicators with a critical eye, capable of contributing to the solution of problems through the generation of participatory processes and with the necessary expertise and competencies to design, execute and evaluate communicative projects and products, with inclusive and intercultural contents and narratives developed in conventional and hypermedial media environments, in a horizon of permanent dialogue for social transformation and emancipation, with democracy, justice, equity and solidarity.
