University teachers training. The hard transition from individual to institutional approaches


Universities are training contexts with special characteristics, some of which are now undergoing profound change processes.So, having a well-prepared teaching staff has become a basic need that requires, in turn, having training plans as a strategic resource for improving the institutional development. The challenge now lies in how to design new teacher education programs more tailored to the changing context of the new Higher Education institutions: less casual and more systematic training, with targets from medium to long term, training focused on the needs of the institution rather than individual needs. Looking back on the experience, the paper analyzes the actual meaning of teacher training in universities and the factors affecting it; the functions performed by training and the conditions that should meet to fulfill them properly.
