UNESCO IESALC’s Quality Management Program is based on an active methodology, in which institutions develop their own transformation process with the support of quality advisors specialized in a learning-by-doing model. The institutions will also count on sessions with quality experts who will share the theoretical and practical elements to carry out the design of institutional improvement plans.
The training takes place at the IESALC Campus based on a connectivist and constructivist learning model, which is supported by the proposal of synchronous (videoconferences and seminars) and asynchronous (autonomous and collaborative work with facilitated learning resources and tools) learning contexts. During 10 weeks, five training modules of two weeks each are addressed, which are carried out together with technical assistance and support from mentors and expert advisors.
